Ducati, the Italian superbike manufacturer has opened order books for its soon to be launched Scrambler. 42 units of Scrambler have already been shipped into the country. All these 42 units have been imported on 16th April. This is expected to be the first lot, and depending on the demand, a second lot will then be imported.

The new Ducati Scrambler receives 330 mm and 245mm disc brakes at the front and rear respectively, and is also connected to two channel Anti Lock Braking System.
To compete head on with Triumph Bonneville and to be more reasonably priced as compared to Kawasaki Z800 or Triumph Street Triple, Ducati Scrambler weighs a total of 186 kgs. It is a modern take of the classic Scrambler from the 1960s and 70s.
To be brought in as a CBU from Ducati Plant in Thailand, the Scrambler will receive a new instrument dial, floating seat, single sided rear mudguard and round headlights with LED. It will be seen with aluminium fuel tank cover, 18” front and 17” rear alloy wheels shod in Pirelli dual sport tyres.
