Scrambler Full Throttle, Classic and Icon
Ducati’s Scrambler range has proved an enormous success story since its launch in 2015 and in its first year scored more than 20,000 sales – that’s nearly 40% of the firm’s overall production. While their marketing hype has been focused on the young and trendy segment, in truth the majority of Scrambler sales are to older riders who already own a modern Ducati and are attracted to the Scrambler’s cool retro styling and easy-going nature. The air-cooled V-twin both sounds and feels authentic and the bike is pleasingly devoid of electronic assists, aside from the mandatory ABS. Sold in three versions, the Full Throttle is sportier with dual stacked Termi pipes and a race-style seat, the Classic has spoked wheels and a brown seat to give it some retro flair while the cheaper Icon is more modern in its look with aluminium tank covers and a saving of £1200 over the premium variants.
