The Ducati Scrambler comes in three new versions: Scrambler Icon, Scrambler Icon Dark and Scrambler 1100 Dark Pro.

Commenting on the launch, Bipul Chandra, MD, Ducati India said, “The Scrambler range has always been a favourite amongst our customers and is the bestselling model range in India. It’s easy riding nature, oodles of character, and accessible everyday performance make it a great bike for both beginners, and enthusiasts. The Scrambler Icon and Icon Dark which are now BS VI compliant also gets a retuned suspension setup which makes it ideal for daily use. I am certain that new as well as seasoned riders will appreciate these changes. For the purists, we are also launching the Scrambler 1100 Dark Pro, which takes the elements that make the Scrambler range such a joy to ride, a notch above. The reinforced chassis, and the Dark Stealth paint job makes the 1100 Dark Pro as good to look at as it is to ride.”

The Scrambler Icon version incorporates new aesthetics and is powered by a BS VI 803cc air-cooled L-twin engine, steel teardrop fuel tank with interchangeable aluminium side panels, softer-feel hydraulic clutch control, all-new DRL (Daytime Running Light) headlight and an ergonomic switchgear which makes it easier for the rider to scroll through the LCD instrument menu.

The Ducati Scrambler’s wide handlebars, flat seat, and renewed suspension provide a more comfortable and relaxed riding position. New Cornering ABS maximises active safety during braking, ensuring riders get full-on riding fun.

In terms of create features, the new Multimedia System lets riders listen to music, answer incoming calls or chat with the passenger on the intercom. The Ducati Scrambler Icon is now available in Ducati Red paint scheme alongside the classic ‘62 yellow’ colour with black frame and black seat.

Furthermore, the Ducati Scrambler 1100 Dark Pro is completely customisable bike, combined with a tubular steel frame and rear sub frame in aluminium. The 1100 Dark Pro has the same original design as the other two models in the range, but differs in the form of a matt black colour with parts in natural anodised aluminium, and rear-view mirrors of classic style. The Scrambler 1100 Dark Pro is powered by a 1,079cc engine characterised by a generous torque available from low revs and a 15-litre tank that enables long. In terms of electronics, it is equipped with Ducati Traction Control (DTC), specially calibrated for this model, and Cornering ABS, which enables maximum safety and agility in all types of turns. In addition to that, the three standard Riding Modes (Active, Journey and City) help less experienced motorcyclists to find the right balance in the use of electronic components, choosing their own riding style.

As part of safety norms, Ducati has started the Ducati Cares Program to ensure precautionary measures for customers at the dealerships.
