The Ducati 125 Scrambler was one of those period bikes from the Italian automaker that truly gained a sizable following. First born with a 125 cc SOHC narrow case engine, the model evolved into a 160 cc before topping out at 250 cc, which, incidentally, also came with Marzochi forks.

Some 1970 125 Scrambler came with a SOHC single engine and mated to a five-speed transmission - all while continuing to use the "125" name. As a small and relatively lightweight machine, the 125 Scrambler’s appeal is that it’s one bike that you wouldn’t mind getting down and dirty with.
