Ducati India today announced the launch of the all-new Ducati Scramblers in India. The MY21 Scrambler range for India now includes Scrambler Icon, Icon Dark and 1100 Dark Pro at Rs 8.49 Lakh, Rs 7.99 Lakh, and Rs 10.99 Lakh respectively (Ex-Showroom Pan India) respectively. The new series is more contemporary, comfortable, and safer, and further enriches and completes the Scrambler ‘Land of Joy’ in India.
The Ducati Scrambler Joyvolution continues with the arrival of three new versions: Scrambler Icon, which is the perfect blend of tradition and innovation, Scrambler Icon Dark, which represents the ideal gateway “800” range, and Scrambler 1100 Dark Pro, which is elegant, pure and an utterly customisable bike. For MY21, all the bikes in the Ducati Scrambler family become compliant with BS6 norms.
Commenting on the launch, Mr Bipul Chandra, Managing Director of Ducati India, said, “The Scrambler range has always been a favourite amongst our customers and is the bestselling model range in India. It’s easy riding nature, oodles of character, and accessible everyday performance make it a great bike for beginners and enthusiasts. Scrambler Icon and Icon Dark, which are now BS6 compliant, also get a retuned suspension setup which makes it ideal for daily use. I am certain that the new as well as seasoned riders will appreciate these changes. For the purists, we are also launching the Scrambler 1100 Dark Pro, which takes the elements that make the Scrambler range such a joy to ride, a notch above. The reinforced chassis and the Dark Stealth paint job makes the 1100 Dark Pro as good to look at as it is to ride. We can’t wait for people to try our first offerings for 2021 that are meant to be ridden hard, and ridden far!”
On the Scrambler Icon, modern yet authentic materials are combined to perfection. The Scrambler Icon version incorporates the new aesthetics. It is loaded with features including a BS6 803 cc air-cooled L-twin engine, steel teardrop fuel tank with interchangeable aluminium side panels, softer-feel hydraulic clutch control, all-new DRL (Daytime Running Light) headlight which boosts bike visibility in traffic and ergonomic switchgear which makes it easier for the rider to scroll through the menu.
The Ducati Scrambler’s wide handlebars, flat seats and renewed suspension set-up merge to provide a more comfortable and relaxed riding position. The new Cornering ABS maximises active safety while braking, ensuring riders get full-on riding fun.
Riders will also appreciate the new Multimedia System which lets you ride while listening to your favourite music, answer incoming calls or chat with the passenger on the intercom. The Ducati Scrambler Icon is now available in “Ducati Red” paint scheme alongside the classic “62 yellow” colour with black frame and black seat.
The Scrambler Icon Dark represents the essentiality of this iconic family of motorcycles: two wheels, wide handlebars, a simple engine and lots and lots of fun. Scrambler Icon Dark is the perfect gateway to the “800” range, as well as the ideal starting point for creating a personal version of your Ducati Scrambler experience. The Scrambler Icon Dark is now available in “Matt Black” paint scheme with black frame and black seat with grey trim.
Furthermore, the Ducati Scrambler 1100 Dark PRO represents the entry model to the “Land of Joy” 1100 range. An elegant, pure and utterly customisable bike, characterised by the “Dark Stealth” livery, combined with a tubular steel frame and rear subframe in aluminium, both black. The 1100 Dark PRO has the same iconic and original design as the other two models in the range. Still, it differs from its “big brothers,” in the form of a matt black colour with parts in natural anodised aluminium and rear-view mirrors of classic style. Made to fully transmit some typical elements of the Ducati Scrambler brand, such as purity, essentiality and a sense of freedom, the 1100 Dark PRO is the right bike to get on the saddle and conquer every road with oodles of style and character.
The Scrambler 1100 Dark PRO incorporates a 1,079 cc engine characterised by a generous torque available from low revs and a 15-litre tank that allows you to tackle even the longest journeys with comfort. In terms of electronics, the new entry of the “Land of Joy” is equipped with Ducati Traction Control (DTC), specially calibrated for this model, and Cornering ABS, which guarantees maximum safety and agility in all types of turns. In addition to that, the three standard Riding Modes (Active, Journey and City) help less experienced motorcyclists to find the right balance in the use of electronic components, choosing their riding style.
While the 2021 models offer a solid starting point, the original Ducati accessories will further enhance the Ducati Scrambler’s creative spirit, which is available at Ducati stores. The Scrambler range also comes with a new apparel line-up which ranges from jackets to t-shirts and ensures that the new motorcycles are enjoyed in style. Based on the Scrambler line-up, Ducati India already sells the Scrambler 1100 Pro and Scrambler 1100 Sport Pro in India.
Considering the need for the hour, Ducati also started the Ducati Cares Program to welcome customers again to the dealerships and ensure that all safety protocols related to COVID are met at its stores. Bookings for the new Scramblers are now open across all Ducati dealerships in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Kochi, Kolkata and Chennai and deliveries will begin by 28th January 2021.
