Joining the Ducati family has become a whole lot more achievable and accessible for Indian bikers, with Ducati slashing the prices of its entry-level motorcycle, Scrambler. The INR 90,000 discount comes as part of the Italian automaker’s 90th anniversary celebrations. The offer is valid on all the Scrambler variants – Full Throttle, Urban Enduro, Classic and Icon – and it will run up to 31 December 2016. YES Bank recently began finance schemes with Ducati for these motorcycles, and these schemes will also be available on the discounted prices. To make the offer more tempting, Ducati also offers to reduce up to three EMI payments under a special scheme. With these scheme on offer, the Scrambler Full Throttle, Urban Enduro and Classic will be priced at INR 7,28,000 (ex showroom Delhi) and the red coloured Scrambler Icon will be priced at INR 6,07,000 (ex showroom Delhi).
That is quite a deep discount. Before this, the red Icon was available at INR 6,78,000, the Urban Enduro was priced at INR 7,90,000 and the Full Throttle and Classic cost INR 7,54,000. As mentioned before, the Scrambler is the Italian automaker’s entry-level model. But do not confuse entry-level with bargain basement, because this is far from one. The Ducati Scrambler is quite a potent machine and a well-built one, as one would expect. It offers a nice blend of modern technology and old-school design. The motorcycle gets its power from an 803 cc air-cooled, fuel-injected two-cylinder engine that generates a healthy 74 bhp of power and 68 Nm of peak torque. It has a six-speed gearbox linked with a chain drive to the rear wheel. Also Read: Triumph Speed Twin Spied Testing Ahead of Launch in 2017
With a 790 mm seat height and upright seating position, the Ducati Scrambler can appeal to a wide range of possible customers. The aluminium side panels of the tank are interchangeable, adding a nice layer of customisation not seen in most bikes. The standard equipment package includes LED light guide and tail light and a USB socket. ABS is standard too, making the 330 mm front disc and 245 mm rear disc brakes a lot safer to use. Ducati offers the Scrambler Icon as a completely-built-up (CBU) model, shipped from its facility in Thailand. The motorcycle is a great option available for those looking for a sub-10 lakh Big Bike that is not as intimidating in size as a Big Bike.
Ravi Avalur, Managing Director of Ducati India said: “In little less than two years, we have achieved great growth and our entire range has been very well received by the Indian market. We would like to thank our Ducatisti and Desmo Owners Clubs for making this a very special year for us.”
