Ducati officially unveiled the updated Scrambler Range at INTERMOT 2018. The updated Scrambler Icon made its debut last month and all the changes on Icon have made its way to Scrambler Full Throttle, Café Racer and Desert Sled. The Scrambler range doesn’t get any major mechanical updates as most of the changes are focused on aesthetics along with some new features.
All three models of Scrambler range now gets the black finish for engine along with thicker gauge aluminium and brushed cylinder head fins. The headlamp gets minor updates with LED daytime running lamps and a new digital instrument cluster. The company has also given fuel gauge and gear position indicator on the cluster.
The multimedia system on the Scrambler range gets Bluetooth connectivity, which allows the rider to answer calls, listen to music with intercom and message will be displayed on the cluster. Ducati has also made some changes to the handlebar and the Scrambler range comes with self-cancelling LED indicators.
The mechanical updates for Scramble range include a hydraulic clutch control with adjustable levers and cornering ABS as part of the standard package. The Scramble range continues to use the same 803 cc, air-cooled, L-twin engine producing 73 bhp at 8,250 rpm and 67 Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm. This engine is mated to the same 6-speed gearbox from the previous model, but tuning is different.
The Scrambler Full Throttle gets the dual tone black-yellow finish for the fuel tank along with a low-slung tapered handlebar, new pillion seat, dual-exhaust and an all-new design for the rear. The Café Racer model doesn’t get any major changes as it now comes with a Silver Ice Matt finish with blue frame, which took inspiration from Ducati 125GP Desmo.
The updated model also gets 17-inch spoke wheels and aluminium-bar-end mirrors. Ducati has added number 54 on the bike as a tribute to the Italian Grand Prix racer Bruno Spaggiari. The Desert Sled is the only model in Scramble range to come with ‘Off Road’ mode in which the ABS system won’t interfere and all the control is with the rider.
The frame is finished in red colour along with contrasting stitches for the seats and spoke wheels with black colour rim does make the Desert Sled looks more sporty. The new Scrambler range sales will begin soon and the Indian launch is expected to take place by the middle of 2019.
