Yep, appears to me that it offers more protection for those expensive clutch/oil pump, and alternator rotor covers if it were to ever go for a slide.
Having to call for a lift cause all the oil had run out would also be a pain.

Might give a little protection for the headers too.

trebor01, all up with postage from QLD was AU$328.19

Engine Guard Ducati Scrambler

Now that the bars are fitted, I can take some time to figure out how and what to do about a bashplate.

Tempted as you mention to make one, the cross member of the bars looks like a perfect place to mount one end of a plate, the rear end could even attach to the back end of the bars as well.

Is there a chance that the UE bash plate fits? I did not find anywhere any mention for this.

Been wanting to see a scrambler with one of these laying in a yard so I could really understand how much it protects.

If I pick one of these up I'll be the first to do it and take pics.

On a "flat surface", the three points of contact for either side are, the protection bars, handle bar end, and rear foot peg bracket.
My exhaust is inside the line of the rear foot peg, but different exhausts with the fatter mufflers might contact before the foot peg.
From memory, the Termi was in fact wider than that line and would have contacted before the peg.

If tilted forward, against the balance of weight, the front axle ends contact, which are easy to protect using appropriate plugs
.(Black poly plugs from the local hardware store are the best and cheapest)

On my set up the foot brake clears and the gear lever just comes into the same plain as the three point contact on the left side.

Main thing is that the engine side covers are completely protected and far from a " flat surface " contact.
