The Ducati Scrambler Icon is powered by an 803cc air-cooled L-twin engine. Flaunting a tear-drop fuel tank, new DRLs, wide handlebar, retuned suspension, more comfortable riding position, the Scrambler Icon tries to stay authentic but also offers a modern touch to the motorcycle. Some of the new features include the multimedia system, cornering ABS, refreshed hydraulic clutch control, and a few more.
The Ducati Scrambler Icon Dark is a twin of the Scrambler Icon and the only difference is the colour scheme. The Icon Dark comes with a matt black paint job with black and grey accents across the body instead of the standard Ducati Red and 62 yellow schemes. The Scrambler Icon Dark offers a much more personalized version of a Scrambler experience.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 Dark Pro is the motorcycle that adds an edge to the entire Scrambler range. The 1100 Dark Pro is powered by a 1079cc engine that offers a generous torque from low revs offering a comfortable long-distance ride. Apart from the engine, a few features like Ducati Traction Control, cornering ABS, riding modes- Active, City, Journey, enhanced safety features are what separates the 1100 Dark Pro from the line-up. The dark stealth livery also enhances the overall character of the scrambler.
The entire 2021 Ducati Scrambler range will be customizable with Ducati accessories that can be purchased from the stores. Apart from the three new launches, Ducati also offers good customization options for the existing Scrambler 1100 Pro and the Scrambler 1100 Sport Pro in the lineup.
“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 BS6 compliant also get 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,,” said Bipul Chandra, MD, Ducati India.
