Finally the Ducati Scrambler Cometh!!!, this was the news that we were waiting desperately to hear ever since Ducati announced its intentions of coming back to India and how this time around they plan to come on their own and make amends to the debacle few years ago. The Ducati Scrambler as we have discussed intricately previously, is probably the most important motorcycle launch since the turn of the millennium.
Coming in front of the world after much publicity and fanfare, the Scrambler was first showcased at INTERMOT back in September, 2014. Ducati is betting so big on this bike that they have created an entirely new sub-brand by the name 'Scrambler' from Ducati, which doesn't just have 4 iterations of the Scrambler concept but also an entire collection of merchandise and apparel suited to the Scrambler and its history.
Powered by the 803cc L-Twin that used to do duty in the Ducati Monster before that new engines arrives with the 2014 Monster 821 and 1200s. The slightly detuned motor now produces 75 PS and 67.7 Nm of torque, and is paired to a 6-speed transmission via a slipper clutch. Where the Scrambler will excel in weight department where it weighs a fairly light dry kerb weight of 170 kg. Alos, a single disc up front provides stopping power witha330 mm disc and a 245 mm disc at the rear with two-channel ABS as standard. Ducati offers Pirelli tyres as standard.
With expected price to be around 6.23 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi, Scrambler will hit bang on in the segment of the Triumph Bonneville and Harley Street 750 and 883. That is a segment where the premium motorcycle market is showing the most promising growth in.
