Ducati recently inaugurated its largest showroom world over at Gurgaon. More exciting news is that two of their Scrambler variants — the Classic and the Full Throttle — is now offered on sale here. All of the Ducati Scrambler models come equipped with the same basic mechanicals such as the 803cc, L-twin cylinder, air-cooled engine that produces a maximum power of 73.8bhp at 8,250rpm and peak torque of 6.9kgm produced at 5,750rpm. The bike’s suspension and chassis are the same too, with an upmarket USD fork set up front, and a preload adjustable, monoshock at rear. For braking duty, the bike uses a single, radial-mounted, Brembo-made, ABS-equipped disc brake at the front and a single disc brake at rear. Let’s take a closer look at how these two variants differ.
Ducati Scrambler Classic: The Scrambler Classic is equipped with a slightly higher-mounted handlebar, but retains the same round headlight with an LED ring. What sets this bike apart is its old-school design language, such as the thick black stripe running down its tank and the brown saddle with a grab handle concealed just below it. The Classic is equipped with spoked wheels that hold Pirelli dual sport tyres in place, up front and at the back. The Classic is also equipped with front and rear aluminum mudguards adding to its vintage appearance. Apart from these features, the Scrambler Classic features the usual LCD console and an under-seat USB connection.
Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle: As the name suggests, ‘Full Throttle’ is how Ducati presents the quick version of its Scrambler. As we know, all Ducati Scramblers, be it the Icon or even the Urban Enduro are equipped with the same engine. The handlebars on the Full Throttle are flatter and lower than the other variants. This Scrambler gets blacked out, 10-spoke alloy wheels and a number plate mount which extends out from the alloy swingarm. There’s also an upmarket Termignoni exhaust with a dual outlet. The entire bike has a dark look to it with yellow colour painted on the tank and on either side of its black saddle.
With these additions, three versions of the Ducati Scrambler are now available in India — the Icon, the Full Throttle and the Classic. Prices for the Scrambler bikes start at Rs 6.78 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
