The renewed 2019 Ducati Scrambler is more contemporary, more comfortable and safer, ensuring even more carefree ‘Land of Joy’ fun! Nonconformist, affordable and essential, the Ducati Scrambler is the perfect blend of tradition and innovation and even in this latest “Joyvolution” incarnation, retains the pure essence of motorcycling: two wheels, wide handlebar, a simple engine and a huge amount of fun.

On the new Scrambler, modern and authentic materials are combined to perfection. The aluminium of the new, beefier side panels flawlessly matches the steel of the teardrop tank and the glass of the headlight. Black-painted engine, brushed cylinder head fins and machine-finished rims make the Ducati Scrambler even more eye-catching.

The all-new headlight with LED DRL (Daytime Running Light) boosts bike visibility in traffic! Even in daylight, as do the new LED indicators that turn-off automatically. More ergonomic switch gears make it easier for the rider to scroll the LCD instrument menu, which now includes fuel level info.

On the new 2019 Ducati Scrambler the high, wide handlebars, a new flat seat and a renewed suspension set-up merge to provide a more comfortable, relaxed riding position. The low weight, low centre of gravity and slightly chunky tyre treads ensure great handling and pure fun whatever the situation. New Bosch Cornering ABS maximises active safety during braking, exclusive content for this vehicle category, ensuring riders get full-on riding fun. Riders will also appreciate the new softer-feel hydraulic clutch control, while the adjustable lever like the one on the front brake ensures the lever-handlebar gap can be adapted to individual needs.

The Ducati Multimedia System lets you ride in the company of your favourite music, answer incoming calls or chat with the passenger on the intercom. The Ducati Scrambler Icon is available in classic “62 Yellow” with black frame and black seat with grey rim and in the new “Atomic Tangerine”, again with black frame and black seat with grey rim.

The now-famed Ducati Scrambler instrumentation has been upgraded with the introduction of ‘selected gear’ and ‘fuel level indicators. Fully digital, its new graphics recall the engine rpm scale seen on ’70s motorcycle speedometers (i.e. in the lower part of the instrument body). As engine revs increase the digits light up clockwise (right to left).

Ducati Scrambler instrumentation also features two trip odometers and one total-mileage odometer, a trip fuel indicator, an air temperature display. Maintenance reminders, a clock, fuel reserve and Bosch Cornering ABS. Riders can also count on an engine oil pressure warning light, high beam indicator, neutral indicator, turn signal indicators, immobiliser and over-rev warning light. Moreover, the Scrambler instrumentation is Ducati Multimedia System (DMS) ready. The DMS activated by purchasing the Bluetooth module accessory lets you answer incoming calls, display text as an messages or listen to music.

An oil cooled L-twin two valve Euro 4 803 cc engine powers the Ducati Scrambler. Derived from the Monster 796 engine, it has an 88 mm bore, a 56 mm stroke and has been redesigned to give smooth acceleration throughout the rev range. The Desmo engine on the Ducati Scrambler has light machine-finished aluminium covers, matching those on the clutch and alternator. The two belt covers are also made of aluminium and have, likewise, been machine-finished to enhance aesthetics

To ensure smooth Integration with the compact steel teardrop tank, the Desmo engine on the Ducati Scrambler features a single 50 mm throttle body with two sub-butterfly Injectors: this solution ensures fluid power delivery and accurate control of the fuel being aspirated. Pistons and crankshaft are the same as those on the DUCATI Monster 796 and Hypermotard 796 power units. The 2-in-1 exhaust with aluminium silencer has been specially designed to ensure linear power delivery. It features an aluminium heat plate for improved rider protection and is EURO 4 compliant one.

The gearbox is a 6-speed unit while the multi-plate oil bath clutch with hydraulic control ensures a light-touch lever with outstanding ‘feel’, a real plus point when it comes to the continuous stop-and-go of inner city traffic. Moreover, it features a torque Iinked anti-hopping system that prevents rear wheel chatter when downshifting.

The twin cylinder Desmo engine on the 2019 Ducati Scrambler has been designed to favour smooth running and fluidic acceleration throughout the rev range, putting out 73 hp (54 kW) at 8250 rpm and 67 Nm of torque at 5750 rpm. Just like the previous Ducati Scrambler, it is designed to be simple and accessible and also features generous 12,000 kilometres maintenance intervals (7,500 miles).
