The Scrambler range will also see a number of increases, with the 800cc Icon model increasing from £7650 to £7850. The 399cc, A2-complient Scrambler Sixty2 will remain priced at £6750.
The entry-level Monster will have the lowest price increase and will now come with a suggested retail price of £7995, up £100 over the previous price.
Though the prices of current models are rising, Ducati are keen to point out that the increases are still under the current rate of inflation in the UK.
The prices of the 2018 models are set to be announced at the Ducati Premiere event in Milan on 5 November. Although it will be unlikely that this will include the price of the eagerly awaited V4 superbike.
