The 2019 Ducati Scrambler range gets a host of upgrades and equipment that offer a better ride quality over its predecessor.
Ducati has launched the 2019 Scrambler range in India. The 2019 Ducati Scrambler range starts from Rs. 7.69 lakhs (ex-showroom). The 2019 variant of the Ducati Scrambler gets a host of upgrades and new equipment including some cosmetic changes and better rideability. The motorcycles will continue being imported from Thailand as CBUs (Completely Built Unit).
Coming to the motorcycle, the 2019 Ducati Scrambler range gets its first detailed update. However, it looks very identical to its predecessor, but on closer inspection, you notice the changes. Ducati has added LED DRLs to the Scrambler range now which are housed within the round headlamp. The digital instrument cluster comes with a fuel gauge reading and a gear indicator has been incorporated as well.
The motorcycle borrows the switchgear from its elder sibling, the Scrambler 1100, which is of a premium build quality. Moreover, the clutch is now said to be lighter and the levers are fully adjustable. The seat cushion has been tweaked and the material opted for the seat is also new, suggesting a more comfortable ride. Additionally, the motorcycle now gets cornering ABS.
Now moving to the mechanical upgrades, the 2019 Scrambler range gets a softer suspension set-up which offers a more plush ride-quality over its predecessor. Ducati claims that the softer suspension set-up does not affect the handling of the motorcycle, which otherwise is a factor when changing the suspension tuning on a motorcycle. The Ducati Scrambler is powered by the same 803cc, L-Twin, air-cooled engine which dishes out 73 BHP and 67 Nm of maximum torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
Ducati has sold more than 500 Scramblers in India which shows the demand for the motorcycle. The 2019 Ducati Scrambler line-up is priced from Rs. 7.89 lakhs for the base Icon variant, the Cafe Racer has been priced at Rs. 9.78 lakhs, the Scrambler Desert Sled is priced at Rs. 9.93 lakhs and the Full Throttle is priced at Rs. 8.92 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom India).
