I read this week about the controversial choice of the rear shock colour. It seems it was argued about being NOT YELLOW as tradition with later Ducatis but I guess we are in a new era of Scrambler so see the argument both sides. I have to admit I do like the Yellow Spring form all my past Dukes but can live with it in Grey. I also read because there was argument it may well change on production as I am still not sure the final fuel filler cap too. So what do you guys prefer....
Also anything else you would like the scrambler to have changed at all slightly.

I've voted yellow.

But, I think it's a good place to add a colour to suit whatever bike colour is chosen.
My Enduro may not suit yellow but maybe red to match the 'X' on the tank.
Let's face it, a wee tin of spray paint is not a bank breaker, and can be changed back again if it looks shyte.

I prefer the yellow spring. I have a Photoshop that I've been playing around with that has certain things I'd like to do when my bike comes. Compared to the US yellow Icon, this one has the carbon emissions box removed (since I started with a Euro pic), then I swapped for the full throttle tank panel, I removed the rear swing arm license plate holder, and I turned the spring yellow. It shouldn't be very expensive to have the spring painted to match, although a little bit of a pain to remove and reinstall it.

That looks the part. I do like the yellow. That's why I ordered greeno_O
Red bike, red spring etc.
From what I can gather on here, there isn't going to be two the same, which I think is a good thing. Derek on here replied to a post and his exhaust and bars have already landed in the skip and the bike is not here yet.

I must have miss-interpreted you, Sorry.

Hi Hui, I'm from Scotland too but only 100 miles from Ducati Glasgow. When I ordered the Classic in November they told me they were expecting the Icon in mid to late February and the rest about a month later, so the dates might have changed.
I've ordered the Termi Sportline exhaust to go with it and the lower bars from the Full Throttle.

The yellow does look good on the yellow bike but reminds me of a wasp and I hate wasps with passion!! :eek::eek:

Good job I have a red bike :). I wouldn't mind red, black or silver on mine
