SCRAMBLER RT

BY ANVIL MOTOCICLETTE

With the Special Scrambler R/T, Anvil Motociclette pays tribute to a motorcycle that few remember but that in the 1970s performed honourably alongside the range of Scrambler models offered by Ducati.

The Ducati R/T (Road and Track), cousin of the Scrambler, was developed for the American market and was initially intended for motocross. Later it was also used as a regular bike.

It had a short racing life, in 1971 participating in the six-day Isle of Man competition. It was a rough, austere and essential motorcycle with a line that perfectly reflected the Anvil style thanks to a front end opening that was just right for the sweeping American deserts.
