Italian motorcycle manufacturer, Ducati today announced its first ever Scrambler Independence Rumble here in India that will take place on Independence Day (August 15).

The rides will be flagged off from the respective Ducati dealerships at 6 AM with the riders astride on their Scrambler and Ducati range of motorcycles.
On this occasion, Sergi Canovas, MD of Ducati India, said, “Education is Independence and we want to give back to the society we live in. We are extremely proud to announce the Scrambler Independence Rumble on the occasion of 71st Independence Day of India. Through these rides, we endeavor to create awareness and help young children receive quality education with the support of Ducatisti across the country. I am confident that our first ride will be full of biking enthusiasts carrying the Indian Flag high and participate in this ride of joy, nostalgia, freedom, peace, love and nobility celebrating the spirit of Nationalism and making a difference.”
"It is always an honour to find support for the cause of education with organizations that have similar values. Lotus Petal is deeply committed to providing a life of dignity to the children living in the urban slums of Gurgaon, India. Our methods to bring about transformation are contemporary and deeply rooted in quality education within classrooms. Ducati`s commitment to their product and customers is timeless. It is an organization built on passion and a lot of understanding of skills and current innovation. We are hopeful that this ride on India’s 71st Independence Day will enthuse more people to the cause of education and work towards taking the nation in the right direction”, Kushal Raj Chakravorty, Founder, Lotus Petal Foundation.
The ride being organized on the occasion of India’s independence will contribute toward a noble cause. Ducati India appreciates and believes in this mission led by Lotus Petal Foundation, a non-profit setup for helping children in the urban slums by providing free education and nutrition.
