Ducati had released a teaser image of a new Scrambler a few days back. From the image that was shared, we did believe that Ducati was planning to update its younger Scrambler. And that is what has happened. Ducati has revealed the 2019 Scrambler 800 that has got a styling update to make it look more appealing than before. But more importantly, this one also gets new electronics that takes inspiration from the larger Scrambler 1100. The 2019 Ducati Scrambler Icon will go on sale in the international markets this November. We can expect it to reach Indian shores by early 2019.

The 2019 Ducati Scrambler gets an all-new headlight with LED DRL along with new auto-off LED indicators. It also gets more ergonomic switchgears that make it easier for the rider to scroll the LCD instrument menu, which now includes fuel level information. Something that was missing on the Scrambler 800 for long. The updated Ducati Scrambler gets wider handlebars, new flat seat, and a renewed suspension set-up apart from getting higher. In the release, Ducati mentions, low weight, low centre of gravity and slightly chunky tyre treads would offer better handling.

The most important update in the 2019 Ducati Scrambler is the availability of Bosch 9.1MP Cornering ABS that is the first for its segment of motorcycles sold in the world. The 2019 Ducati Scrambler also gets an updated hydraulic clutch control with an adjustable lever that can alter the lever-handlebar gap according to individual needs. Additionally, the 2018 Ducati Scrambler also gets new, beefier aluminium side panels, black-painted engine, brushed cylinder head fins and machine-finished rims.

Presently, Ducati has unveiled only the Icon that is the Scrambler 800 range starter. The 2019 Icon will be available in the popular classic yellow shade along with the new atomic tangerine shade. The release does not mention anything about the six other variants that are offered in the Scrambler 800, which we believe will be updated shortly.
