Ducati will be updating its Scrambler range on April 26 in India. The Scrambler range has three bikes, The Icon, Desert Sled, and the Cafe Racer. It gets updates all over, including better features, technology, and cosmetic updates.
The main update in the Scrambler range is the Bosch 9.1MP Cornering ABS. It will be one of the first motorbikes in this price range to get this feature. Ducati explained the feature as it will allow “you to make a panic stop while at full lean, without crashing.” This feature is further ahead of the normal ABS which only helps in straight line braking.
The new range of Scramblers will also feature various cosmetic updates. The headlight unit will be new with LED DRL, LED headlight, LED turn indicators. The instrument cluster gets a fuel gauge and gear indicator, which was missing in the current range. The handlebar is wider than before, interchangeable aluminum side panels are new, new muffler cover and a flatter new seat. Clutch has been updated to a new hydraulic clutch and adjustable levers. Ducati Scrambler Icon can get the DMS( Ducati Multimedia System ) as an option.
The suspension setup has been altered to provide better handling. The wheels are 10-spoke sleek alloy wheels which are derived from bigger 1100. A New Atomic tangerine color is provided. The yellow shade is still there. The engine gets black cylinder heads and brushed aluminum fins. The engine will remain the same and there no information about the change in power.
The current Ducati Scrambler Icon starts at a price of Rs 7.28 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). With all the additions Ducati will charge a premium over the current model. It can be in the range of Rs 40,000 to 50,000. Even with the premium, the new Scrambler range offers a great set of feature.
