New Du­cati Icon

Bike India - - IGNITION -

DU­CATI HAVE UN­VEILED AN UP­DATE FOR THEIR POP­U­LAR SCRAM­BLER Icon which looks much more con­tem­po­rary now and also comes with a host of new fea­tures.

Af­ter four long years, this is the first ma­jor up­date for the Scram­bler and Du­cati say that the rest of the line-up will also re­ceive up­dates soon. The new Scram­bler Icon comes with new alu­minium side pan­els that now flaw­lessly match the teardrop tank and the head­lamp assem­bly. The en­gine gets a new black paint treat­ment with brushed cylin­der-head fins. The new Icon also gets ma­chine-fin­ished al­loy wheels, an all-new head­lamp with LED day­time run­ning light, auto-off LED in­di­ca­tors, and a more er­gonomic switchgear for scrolling through the LCD in­stru­ment menu that now also fea­tures a fuel-level in­di­ca­tor.

Du­cati have equipped the new Icon with high and wide han­dle­bars, a new flat seat, lower cen­tre of grav­ity thanks to the re­vised sus­pen­sion set-up, and chunkier tyre treads for bet­ter han­dling while off-road­ing. The new Icon comes equipped Bosch cor­ner­ing ABS and hy­draulic clutch with an ad­justable lever.

The new Scram­bler Icon is avail­able in two shades: an Atomic Tan­ger­ine with black frame and grey trim and the clas­sic 1962 Yellow with black seat and grey trim. The bike will be avail­able in the in­ter­na­tional mar­ket from Novem­ber 2018. Du­cati In­dia haven’t said any­thing about the bike as yet; how­ever, given the pop­u­lar­ity of the model in the coun­try, we may ex­pect the com­pany to launch it in In­dia soon there­after. The price of this mo­tor­cy­cle is also not known as of now, but given the fact that it comes with so many new good­ies, it surely will be slightly more ex­pen­sive than the cur­rent model avail­able in In­dia.
