The Scramblers are all uniquely styled to suit different customer needs. Here’s a quick look at each one.
Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled
The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled has been styled for proper off-road applications. It has raised front and rear mudguards. It gets a 19-inch front wheel and a long travel suspension. It also gets off-road tyres and a headlamp guard as well as sump guard.
Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer
The Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer gets low clip-on handlebars for that crouching riding position. It gets tiny mudguards, headlamp shroud and lower front-end with a chopped short cafe-racer seat. It has a distinct white and blue paint scheme.
Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle
The Scrambler Full Throttle has been designed to look like the classic Ducati Scrambler, but with some go-faster design elements. It gets a single-seat setup with alloy wheels. It comes in a dark black and yellow colour combination.
Ducati Scrambler Icon
The Ducati Scrambler Icon is the updated version of the classic Scrambler. Launched in its trademark yellow and grey colour combination as well as an orange, it gets a single barrel exhaust and a full seat. This is the entry-level Ducati Scrambler, and among the most popular in the company’s bike range.
The Ducati Scrambler range competes with Triumph’s Bonneville series as well as Harley-Davidson’s Forty Eight model in India. While the Triumph bikes are liquid cooled, Ducati and Harley have old-school air-cooled models, for that full retro feel.
