Ducati Scrambler is not just a new brand or motorcycle it is an emotion that evoked the feeling of fun and adventure blended with advanced technology and served with a generous dose of perform. In its Avataar, the Anti-conformist yet expressive brand offers not only a machine that it bolt on to a chassis plonked onto a set of wheels but also a set of  accessories and apparel that help you look the part. The Ducati Scrambler is a perfectly balances traditional values and  a modern outlook while taking a step towards the pure essence of motorcycling: a set of wheels, wide comfortable handle bars, a straight forward engine and oodles of fun. The Scrambler world – the latest entrant to the Ducati universe – built upon authentic creativity and free expression; while the lead-up to its official arrival has generated an unprecedented excitement, the launch campaign was nothing short of outstanding originality yet captivating.

This is not limited to being just a new motorcycle but a generation that expresses itself via a range of iterations that is a tap which satiates the needs and wants of individual motorcyclists. “Post-heritage” design gives a contemporary take on the iconic bike built by them back in the 1970s. This Ducati Scrambler, though, is not a retro bike: it is, rather, intended to be just how the legendary motorcycle would be today if Ducati had never stopped manufacturing it.

In 2016 the Ducati Scrambler family was set to grow. The Icon, Urban Enduro, Full Throttle and Classic versions are already adorning tarmac, concrete and dust are expected to be joined others. Also the new Sixty2 aims to open the way for a new two-wheel segment that meets the requirements of those seeking a smaller-engined bike that is easy to handle and is low on maintenance. but is high on the unique Scrambler spirit.
