I have done about 400 miles on my icon scrambler, I have had it since November but have only just got round to using it because of winter weather. So what's it like.....
The engine is brilliant and so is the gearbox, I had a 821 monster and the gearbox on that was rubbish. I love the riding position on the scrambler but there are problems, for some reason Ducati choose to fit a plank of wood instead of a seat. The seat really is bad. What's the comfort seat like? Where can I get a comfort seat? (I am in uk)
Also the standard grips are rubbish, they have big rubber ridges on them that hurt my hands, where can I get smooth ones from? Maybe from a monster?
Other main problem are the mirrors which seem to have hardly any adjustment. All I can see are my elbows.

Welcome
The seat does soften up after some use
DP do a comfort seat the dealer may have one in stock
Mirrors can't help mine ok

I couldn't stand the grips either and changed them first thing, boy what a relief. You've got all sorts of options to choose from, go to the search bar at the top right corner of this page and type in aftermarket grips. You'll find tons of info and pictures. Same way with mirror adjustment and seat upgrades. All our bikes are a work in progress it seems, you'll have yours suiting you better in no time.

Looks like a bad bye, one of the best winters we've had
