First commute today. Terrible rain!

First impressions. Very much like the Ducati scramble urban enduro except is sits lower on the rear wheel. Anyone know the best way of changing the angle of attack as it were?

Welcome to the forum. When I tried a Ducati Scrambler (it was the Icon I think), I found the bars too wide - the very upright riding position combined with wide bars created a huge amount of wind resistance. I prefer the riding position of the XSR, still upright but less tiring on fast roads. You can tinker with the height and reach of the bars, with several after market options available. You could also have an after market seat made up with extra height if desired. I'd leave it a while, though - every new bike takes a bit of getting used to. You may find yourself happy with the riding position soon, especially when the rain stops!
