About the new Ducati Scrambler…
A contemporary interpretation of the original 1970’s icon, the Ducati Scrambler 2015 is an easy-to-handle sport bike that is comfortable, accessible and every bit as fashionable as its predecessor. Whilst it certainly exhibits a retro flair, the Scrambler was not designed to indulge in the nostalgic but rather was ‘intended to be just how the legendary Bologna-built motorcycle would be today if Ducati had never stopped building it’.
With the aim of reviving a legend and enhancing it with the technical specifications of a present day bike, Ducati’s designers incorporated several defining characteristics such as the fuel tank; shaped in a way that remains true to the original teardrop design of the 1970’s model, an inscription on the filler cap that says ‘born in 1962’ and the distinctive round head lamp. The Scrambler includes various modern features and fittings such as the two-channel ABS braking, LED powered headlights, and a USB charging port under the seat as standard.
Back in the day, the Scrambler was a 250cc single-cylinder bike and now it runs on a fuel-injected oil and air cooled 800cc L-Twin engine that produces up to 75hp. The new Scrambler which will be officially launched next year will come in four versions: the red or yellow Icon, the black-framed Classic, the wild green Urban Enduro and the black Full Throttle racer with yellow accents.
The Ducati Scrambler will be showcased in various locations throughout Peninsular Malaysia before it moves on to the next country in the beginning of November. So if you would like to get the first glimpse of the bike, don’t forget to drop by at the locations and dates below:
