Ducati recently launched the new Scrambler Icon Dark in India as part of the 12 bikes that it is expected to introduce in the country this year. So here we tell you all there is to know about the 2021 Ducati Scrambler Icon Dark.
The 2021 Scrambler Icon Dark is currently the most affordable Ducati one can buy in India. It is priced at Rs 7.99 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The motorcycle costs Rs 50,000 lesser than the Scrambler Icon.
The biggest difference between the Icon Dark and Icon is the paint scheme. While the Scrambler Icon gets bright Yellow and Tangerine colours, the Scrambler Icon Dark like its name suggests sports a Matte Black paint scheme. It also sports retro-looking round mirrors instead of the angular units on other models.
While it gets the same round headlamp that comes fitted with an LED DRL, the Scrambler Icon Dark offers conventionally-lit turn indicators as compared to the LED units on the Icon. Apart from these changes, the Scrambler Icon Dark is similar to the standard Scrambler Icon. So it comes with a digital instrument cluster, cornering ABS.
Powering the Scrambler Icon Dark is the tried-and-tested 803cc, L-twin engine that churns out 74bhp of power and 68Nm of torque. It comes paired to a six-speed gearbox with slipper clutch.
