Italian motorcycle brand Ducati has taken the covers off its new Scrambler Icon, Full Throttle, Café Racer and Desert Sled on 26th April 2019. The 2019 updated versions of the Ducati Scrambler have seen a lot of technical as well as cosmetic upgrades.
Starting with the engine the 2019 Ducati Scrambler is powered by an air-cooled, 803cc, L-Twin, Desmodromic, 2-valves per cylinder motor producing 73 HP of power @ 8250 RPM and 67 Nm of torque @ 5750 RPM coupled to a 6-speed transmission and a hydraulically controlled slipper assist wet multi-plate clutch.
The Scrambler gets more muscular side panels made with aluminium and matches the teardrop-shaped steel tank. The engine crankcase is painted in black and the fins on the cylinder heads are brush finished. The headlight is an all-new design with LED daytime running lights, turn indicator lamps are LED and come with an auto-off function. The switchgear is ergonomically designed for the rider to scroll information on the LCD instrument console. The instrument console now displays gear position and fuel level.
The Ducati Scrambler now features a new flat seat, a wide handlebar and the suspension set up is tweaked along with the Pirelli 60 MT RS tyres. The most important technical feature that the Ducati Scrambler gets is a new Bosch Cornering ABS which is a very important safety feature. The clutch is now hydraulically controlled with an adjustable lever.
The Ducati multimedia system can connect your mobile phone so you can easily answer calls on the go and also listen to your favourite tracks. The multimedia system can also be used to pair a rider to a pillion intercom system.
