The Cafe Racer and Full Throttle models have been discontinued.

Ducati Scrambler Features:
Ducati spruced up the Scrambler a while back. The neo-retro motorcycle got a cross-shaped LED DRL and LED turn indicators. The LCD digital console also saw minor revisions with a gear position indicator and fuel gauge. This console is Ducati Multimedia System ready, allowing you to connect your smartphone to your ride to control music on the go.
Ducati Scrambler Engine:
The Ducati Scrambler is powered by the old 803cc L-twin air-cooled engine that puts out 73.4PS and 67Nm. The BS6-compliant version makes the same power and torque as the BS4 engine. The six-speed gearbox is fitted with a hydraulically actuated slip-and-assist clutch.
Ducati Scrambler Suspension & Brakes:
On the Ducati Scrambler Icon and Nightshift, you find a 41mm Kayaba USD fork and a Kayaba preload-adjustable monoshock. All of them get a 330mm front disc with a Brembo four-piston radial caliper and a 245mm rear disc with a single-piston caliper. On the Icon, you get a 18-/17-inch alloy wheel setup that runs on Pirelli MT 60 RS tyres, whereas the Nightshift rides on 18-inch front and 17-inch rear spoke wheels. The Scrambler gets Bosch cornering ABS. The Desert Sled is the most hardcore of the lot, and to handle the gnarly bits, the Sled gets a 46mm fully-adjustable USD fork and a preload and rebound-adjustable Kayaba monoshock. These are long-travel suspension units. The 19-/17-inch spoke wheels are wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR dual-purpose tyres. Braking hardware remains the same.
Ducati Scrambler Rivals:
The Ducati Scrambler locks horns with the likes of the Triumph Street Twin and the upcoming BS6-compliant Triumph Street Scrambler. The Scrambler Desert Sled is almost as capable as the hardcore Triumph Scrambler 1200 XC, but is less powerful and less kitted out. For the same price as the Scrambler Icon, you can get yourself the Kawasaki Z900 and the Suzuki GSX-S750, both of which are due to receive their BS6 updates.

Scrambler 800 BS6 Expert Review
Ducati has launched the 2019 Scrambler Cafe Racer, Scrambler Full Throttle and Scrambler Desert Sled. The Scrambler Icon was updated a while back and gets cosmetic updates and features like cornering ABS from the larger Scrambler 1100.
Preceded with plenty of hype by the Italian motorcycle manufacturer, Ducati took the wraps off the much-awaited Scrambler for the first time at the Intermot 2014 motor show in Cologne, Germany. Certainly living up to that hype, the motorbike reminds of the 1960-70’s vintages and is styled as a “retro” bike.
The first generation of Scrambler was powered by single-cylinder engines with several displacements. Now, the Scrambler runs on a fuel-injected, oil and air-cooled, 803cc L-Twin engine with two-valves per cylinder that produces a maximum power of 75hp with 68Nm of torque. The motor is linked to a six-speed transmission that chain-drives a 17-inch rear wheel. The top speed of the beast remains a mystery. The Scrambler Ducati sports a fuel tank of 13.5 liter capacity.The stopping responsibility is handled by a 330mm, four-piston calliper front disc and a 245mm rear disc with combined ABS. The comfort area is managed by upside-down Kayaba 41mm fork at the front and Kayaba rear monoshock with preload adjustment.
The fleet comes with six variants- Icon, Urban Enduro, Classic, Full Throttle, Desert Sled and Cafe Racer. Each version is designed to meet a particular style stature engrossed with adventure and a strong off-roading image. A comfortable riding position with wide handlebars adds to the main positives of the bike. The tyres come under Pirelli brand with a standard size of 110/80 ZR18 at the front and 180/55 ZR17 at the rear. Each Scrambler is different from its sibling in one way or the other. The Icon believes in simplicity and is the most basic of all. While the Urban Enduro and Classic variants are incorporated with spoke aluminium wheels, the Full-throttle variant comes with a short sporty front mudguard and an all-black fuel tank with yellow stripes.
Other standard fittings include the two-channel ABS braking, fully modern LED-powered headlights, an old-school tapered petrol tank and a fuel cap inscribed with the words "Born in 1962." Under the seat, the storage bin features a USB charging port, that was missing in the old Scramblers. A sporty LED tail lamp that is incorporated neatly just below the saddle looks impressive. A steel tank with interchangeable aluminium side panels does add a lot to its vintage character. Scrambler Ducati can prove its worth by snatching the market share of its competitors. The Indian buyers will have to pay Rs. 7-10 lacs who wish to park this Italian monster in their garage.
