Ducati has just announced the first machine to be unveiled as part of its ‘Joyvolution’ campaign is its updated 800cc Scrambler Icon.
Just four years on from the launch of the brand, more than 55,000 Scrambler’s have been sold worldwide. And now Ducati is building on that success, launching an updated Scrambler Icon. It’s a cool looking thing (as you’d expect), with new, beefier aluminium side panels which match the steel of its teardrop tank and the glass of the headlight. There’s a black-painted engine, brushed cylinder head fins and machine-finished rims to help the new Ducati Scrambler stand out from the crowd.
But in reality, most of the updates for 2018 relate to tech. More specifically, It comes with an all-new headlight with LED DRL (Daytime Running Light) which helps to boost the bikes visibility in traffic, even in daylight. And the same goes for its new auto-off LED indicators. There’s also new Bosch Cornering ABS – all-new and exclusive for this category of vehicle – which should help inspire riding confidence on the road despite the Icon’s dual-sport oriented tyres and intended use.
The new Ducati Scambler Icon will be available in Atomic Tangerine with black frame and a black seat with grey trim or in classic ’62 Yellow with black frame and black seat with grey trim. And at the minute, Ducati reckon it’ll be in dealers in November. We can’t wait.
