Pramac Ducati bosses have admitted Cal Crutchlow’s shock Desmosedici departure threw the Italian team's 2015 plans into disarray. Paolo Campinoti’s satellite squad believed it would keep hold of number one asset Andrea Iannone for next season.

My father has been taking me to motorcycle races since I was young, so I grew up around bikes. He always had Ducatis—which are beautifully designed Italian motorcycles. When I turned 16, I wanted one, but he wanted me to wait. Two years later, I graduated high school, took a motorcycle class and got my license. I came home one day and he said, "Hey, let me show you something."

Ducati have confirmed their much-hyped all-new Scrambler will be unveiled at the end of September at the Cologne motorcycle show known as Intermot.
This is the clearest Ducati Scrambler spyshot photo we've seen so far.
On one hand Cal Crutchlow’s escape has simplified things for Ducati - which will no longer be forced to field three bikes - on the other has create some difficulties, especially to Pramac Team.

Ducati Corse and Cal Crutchlow terminate contract ahead of 2015
Ducati Corse announced today that it has reached an agreement with its factory rider Cal Crutchlow to terminate, ahead of time, the contract that ties the British rider to the Italian team in MotoGP for 2014 and also for next season. The two factory Ducati Team riders for 2015 will now be Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone.
Not a bombshell, more like the only solution. How are you going to test the 2015 bike with him on it and leaving to become the first guy you need to pass to get to the podium?
Update - Motomatters and MotoGP.com report that there is some confusion and Cal Crutchlow will remain on the Ducati until the end of 2014
When we were at WDW we wrote: there will be three “red” Ducati on track in 2015 but after all the official Ducati might be only two: those of Andrea Dovizioso and Andrea Iannone.
Cal Crutchlow, in fact, right now is trying to break free from the contract that would tie him to Borgo Panigale in 2015.
So... Do you let him go to a bike he's going to be a strong competitor on and add another step to climb? Or try to keep him happy on the third bike? I think the answer here is clear...

We spied a Ducati 1199 Panigale R about to embark on a tour outside the factory without any camouflage on. Judging from the photos, it's going to be epic!
Is this the 2015 1199 Panigale R?
