Ducati just had its best month ever, delivering 7,309 bikes in April. That’s a 29 percent increase in sales over this time last year and blows past the previous record of 6,500 bikes sold in May of 2012. The reason? The Scrambler.

Ducati is already seeing a 10 percent bump in sales for the year, with a total of 17,881 sold in the first quarter. Much of that has to do with the Scrambler being the best-selling bike in Italy, where the company is seeing a 69 percent increase in its home country.

Sure, the new 1299 Panigale and Multistrada 1200 are helping with the uptick in sales, but the Scrambler’s success in Europe – including increases of 52 percent in Germany and 50 percent in the UK – are pointing towards a banner year.

Deliveries in the U.S. just started in the past month, and Ducati believes it’s going to boost sales in the States by around 20 percent.

That's all good news Nick, It's just a pity some customers have been waiting months for their bikes, and others like myself only had to wait 3 weeks, But I'm sure it'll get get sorted shortly, we hope,

Fact is that sales make jobs. Jobs keep Ducati alive. Just 20 years ago the Monster did the same thing and saved Ducatis bacon. Now its the Scramblers time to shine because the Monster is not going too sell like it used to. Keeps all the the racing alive too. I wonder when a Scrambler race series will come about. I can actually see one happening maybe flatrack style or similar.
So pleased for Ducati and glad all the bikes getting landed.

and waiting times should come down if Ducati get their act together and throw some importance to the customers waiting, will be interesting to see where they feel some effort should be put. Personally those of us waiting for the "specials" would like a little effort in improving the ratio of specials against the icon.
And before anyone says my fault I was told etc etc I am fully aware and will wait mostly patiently! But others might not! So I'll sit lonely as a cloud with my bottom lip firmly on the floor hoping for a indian summer!!!!!!!!!!
