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.
