• 1972 Ducati 250 Scrambler

LISTEN 01:13

The Ducati 250 Scrambler was the third model in Ducati’s line-up to use wide engine crankcases. Packed with a 249 cc SOHC single engine and mated to a five-speed transmission, the 1972 250 Scrambler became one of the most sought-after bikes of its time.

The 250-cc engine is often considered to be the smoothest of the entire Ducati Scrambler range, despite not carrying a decompression lever to assist in starting.

This dark yellow and black example, which was up for bidding at the 2012 RM Auctions in Monaco, is described as a very nice original with good paint and chrome and would complete the set for a buyer seeking one of the most favored Ducati models of the 70’s.

Expected price for the 1972 Ducati 250 Scrambler hits between €4,000 - €6,000, which is around $5,000 - $7,500 based on current exchange rates. Actual selling price was right in the middle at $6,818.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
