When it was launched, the Ducati Scrambler immediately got everyone's attention. However, as Ducati does with almost all its motorcycles, it needed to have a younger (or older) sibling. And that's exactly the path the manufacturer seems to be on.
Ducati is working on a smaller version of the Scrambler, and will be giving it a 400cc engine. From what we know so far, this smaller Ducati will get its chassis and styling from the current one, and even the engine will have its roots in the larger V-twin one. Although in all probability the chassis could be made lighter on this smaller motorcycle.
As announced earlier, the Italian manufacturer has nine new models in the works, including the recently unveiled hooligan, the Monster 1200 R. Ducati also said that it is planning on revealing the remaining eight models at the EICMA 2015, a few weeks from now, and we can expect them to showcase the Scrambler 400 there.
The Scrambler on sale right now is brought in as a CKD kit, and retails for Rs 6.7 lakh. We can only wait to see how Ducati prices its younger sibling.
