Ducati Unveils 2015 Scrambler At IntermotPosted On: October 1, 2014 By : AutoLife Team
After months of teasing previews on social media and at locations around the world for several years, legendary Italian motorcycle firm Ducati has finally presented the Ducati Scrambler brand at the INTERMOT show in Cologne, Germany.
According to the company, the Scrambler is built for the street or modest off-pavement enduro riding. The Scrambler is not a retro bike: it is, rather, intended to be just how the Italian motorcycle would be today if Ducati had never stopped building it. The “Post-Heritage” design gives a contemporary take on the iconic bike built by Ducati back in the 60s and 70s.
Power for the motorcycle comes from a fuel-injected, 803cc, oil and air-cooled L-twin engine which produces a peak power of 75 hp and 68 Nm of torque. The engine is linked up to a six-speed gearbox. Modern features include electronic fuel injection, disc brakes front and rear with ABS as standard equipment, and LCD instrumentation panel. Similarly, other specifications revealed consist of a twin-spar steel trellis frame, 18-inch 10-spoke alloy front wheel and 17-inch rear, die-cast aluminium swingarm, ‘enduro-derived’ Pirelli tyres, spacious under-seat storage with a USB socket.The bike will go on sale in January 2015.The Icon Red will be US $8,495; Icon Yellow $8,595. The Full Throttle, Urban Enduro and Classic will each be $9,995.
