Lowering the height of the Ducati Scrambler 800 Is it possible?
The seat of this model of motorcycle is not one of the highest as it is 798 mm from the ground. Still, if you are short in stature, you may want to lower the whole bike even further.

Ducati Scrambler 800 Lowering Kit
Do you know the kits to lower the height of a motorcycle? These are connecting rods that allow you to anchor the rear suspension at a different point than the default and make the bike lower its height.
We have researched online and found websites that sell specific kits for Ducati motorcycles. We can not assure you that they also fit the Scrambler 800, but the price is around 100€. You can contact a mechanic to find out the exact price and how much it would cost to have them installed.
Lowered seat for the Ducati Scrambler 800
Another alternative to lower the height of the Ducati Scrambler 800 is to replace the driver’s seat with one that has less foam and, being lower, allows you to reach with your feet on the ground.
Online we have found discounted seats for this model of motorcycle at a price of around 180 €.
It is an option but, remember that the foam is designed to absorb shocks and protect your back, especially if you are going to make long trips or on bumpy roads and curves.
Risks of lowering the ride height of the Ducati Scrambler 800
Even if it is only a matter of changing one part, it must be taken into account that doing so will change the entire geometry of the bike. This has consequences for the balance that the developers and experts have designed to ensure that the bike performs at its best, is easy to ride and at the same time safe.
In some cases, you can try changing other parts of the bike to balance the gearing, but when it comes to riding, the bike may not respond as it should.
So how do you lower the ride height of the Ducati Scrambler 800? We have an ideal solution that instead of lowering the bike will make you gain height.
Upbikers: gain height and ride safely
The Upbikers are a kind of elevator that is easily placed on the toe of your shoes and allows you to gain 4 cm on both legs. A plus point of this product is that the soles have a recess so that you can move the pedals of the bike easily, as you would do without the Upbikers.
