While vast majority of British enthusiasts would regard the café-racer styled sports roadsters as the definitive single-cylinder Ducatis, in Continental Europe and the USA it was the off-road models that were the biggest sellers. Produced to satisfy the demands of its American importers, the first 250 Scrambler appeared in the early 1960s and continued when the singles range was updated to ‘wide case’ specification for 1968. The first wide case model shown to the public (at the Cologne Show in 1967), the Scrambler was produced in 250 and 350cc sizes initially, the 450 (actually 436cc) version not arriving until 1969. This original and unrestored Ducati 450 Scrambler was imported into Austria by the Kazan company. Purchased by Professor Ehn in 1990, it was ridden by him on a regular basis before being placed in the Museum. The machine is offered with original Austrian Einzelgenehmigung (indicating matching frame/engine numbers) and other assorted documentation.
