2019 Scrambler launching tomorrow

Ducati India is all set to launch the 2019 iteration of its entry-level motorcycle range, the Scrambler. The Scrambler range includes the Icon, Desert Sled, Full Throttle and Cafe Racer variants. Out of these, the Icon, Desert Sled and Cafe Racer will be launched tomorrow, followed by the launch of the Full Throttle later this year. We sampled the Icon in Thailand recently. So head here to read the full review.

The 2019 Ducati Scrambler range made their debut at last year’s INTERMOT show. Ducati has updated the range with dual-channel Bosch cornering ABS, a hydraulically actuated clutch and a retuned the suspension setup for better ride quality too. The Italian brand is also offering a flatter, more comfortable seat for enhanced ergonomics and on the practicality front, the instrument cluster now gets a gear position indicator and fuel gauge. Even the switchgear is new and the levers are now adjustable. For the tech-savvy geeks, there’s an optional Ducati Multimedia System on offer too! It’s essentially an infotainment system that is compatible with smartphones via Bluetooth.

Ducati has also updated the range with a few cosmetic updates as well. For starters, the fuel tank features aluminium side panels that are interchangeable. Other updates include new wheels, black cylinder heads and brushed aluminium fins on the engine to name a few.

Powering the Scrambler range is a 803cc L-twin Desmodromic air-cooled engine with oil cooler. It produces 73.4PS at 8250rpm and 67Nm at 5750rpm with the help of a 6-speed slipper clutch-enabled transmission.

The 2019 models are likely to command a premium of about Rs 30,000 to Rs 40,000 over the outgoing models. The current-gen Scrambler range starts from Rs 7.23 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi. The Scrambler goes head to head with Triumph’s entry-level model, the Street Twin, in India.
