The Ducati Scrambler Icon is the Italian manufacturer’s smallest offering in India as well as the most affordable motorcycle in the Scrambler range.
While the Scrambler Icon has the same retro-character of its predecessor, it gets slight visual tweaks for 2019 that give it a fresher and modern appeal. So there is the LED DRL housed in a circular headlamp cowl, new covers for the exhaust canister and pipes along with redesigned tank side panels. The alloys too have been redesigned and have a machine-finish to them. Ducati is offering the 2019 version in an 'Atomic Tangerine' paint scheme that goes well with the black frame. It is also available in the classic yellow paint scheme that is unique to the Scrambler Icon.
Powering the 2019 Scrambler Icon is the same 803cc, air-cooled, L-twin engine as the previous bike. This motor produces 73bhp of power and 67Nm of torque and is comes mated to a six-speed gearbox. Nevertheless, the 2019 Scrambler Icon is equipped with a hydraulic clutch assembly for lighter clutch lever pulls. Ducati has also fitted the bike with adjustable levers; both for the clutch and brake. The 2019 Scrambler Icon comes with a different set of switchgear for 2019. The quality is much better, it is easy-to-reach and also gets a push-down toggle for ignition.
One of the most essential upgrades on the 2019 Scrambler Icon is the addition of the fuel gauge and gear indicator in the instrument cluster. Besides that, Ducati has equipped the Icon's electronics package with a cornering ABS unit. In terms of competition, the Scrambler Icon goes up against the Triumph Street Twin in India.
