In the current market scenario there isn’t a more smarter representation of the 1960’s than Ducati’s scrambler. Recently unveiled at the Intermot Show in Germany, this is the first time the Ducati Scrambler is on display at the Thailand International Motor Expo.
The Scrambler hangs on tight to the retro look. With a short mudguard, flat seats and wide upright handlebars, it reimagines the good ol’s days when motorcycles cult were getting born and the Ton-up boys where real. Look away from the retro bodywork and you would find everything up to date with modern technology. The round headlight is a state-of-the-art LED unit and the instrument cluster has a full LCD readout.
The suspensions consist of 41 mm upside-down forks supplied by Kayaba and a mono suspension unit that connects to the banana shaped swingarm. At the front a single 330 mm rotor and radially mounted brake calipers take up the job of braking, while at the rear, retardation is dealt with a 245 mm disc fitted with a single-piston caliper. The brakes made by Brembo come fitted with ABS as standard
To check mark on the performance, a 803 cc air-cooled L-twin sits in-between the cradle producing 75 bhp and 50 Nm of torque that is pushed towards the rear wheel by a 6-speed transmission. The scrambler weighs in at 170 kg and comes in four different versions: Scrambler Icon, Scrambler Full Throttle, Scrambler Classic and Urban Enduro. In all the variants there are slight changes to the mudguards and the bodywork.
