Ducati PH opens order books for next-gen Scrambler

Ducati, renowned for its high-performance motorcycles, has just revealed the updated Scrambler lineup at the International Motorcycle and Accessories Exhibition (EICMA) held in Milan. Now it’s time for the Philippines to get its share of the new Scrambler range.

Announced recently, Ducati Philippines has already opened the order books for the new Scrambler until August 31, 2023. The iconic next-generation model will arrive with three models: the Icon, Full Throttle, and Nightshift. Even better, each of the bikes come with introductory pricing.

The Scrambler Full Throttle has an introductory price of P790,000. It comes with the Rossi GP’19 / Dark Stealth color theme.

The Scrambler Icon, on the other hand, has a lower introductory pricing at P670,000, which can be bought in either 62 Yellow, Ducati Red, or Thrilling Black hues.

Last, but definitely not the least, the Scrambler Nighshift tops the range with its sporty aura. It will initially sell for P790,000 and available solely in Nebula Blue.

The second-generation Ducati Scrambler range has received significant updates. All three variants continue to be powered by the 803cc, air- and oil-cooled Ducati Desmodromic L-twin engine, delivering 73hp at 8,250 rpm and 65.2Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm. However, the transmission has been revised and now features a hydraulic slipper clutch for enhanced performance.

The new Ducati Scrambler boasts a ride-by-wire throttle system, offering two ride modes for the 2023 model year: Road and Wet. Additionally, Traction Control and Cornering ABS are now standard across the entire range. 

The sportiest model, the Full Throttle, comes equipped with a quickshifter and a Termignono exhaust as standard. To pay homage to the first Ducati Scrambler’s debut year in 1962, the Full Throttle variant features the number 62 as a distinguishing mark.

Technological advancements can be seen in the form of a new 4.3-inch TFT display integrated with Ducati’s smartphone-ready Multimedia system. The Scrambler lineup also receives a fresh design, featuring a steel tank available in different colors, with model-specific overlays. Depending on the market, customers will have access to a range of accessories that match the colors and model of their Scrambler.

In terms of aesthetics, the updated Scrambler range now incorporates full LED lighting, including the signature X-shaped DRL (Daytime Running Light), which is a prominent design element mirrored on various parts of the motorcycle. The Nightshift model retains its beloved flat handlebar and showcases refined dark-colored details, exuding elegance.

Ducati has not overlooked the Scrambler’s performance and handling. The frame, swingarm, and rear suspension have been revised, with the rear suspension transitioning to a monoshock setup. The rear subframe has been redesigned to be a bolt-on component, allowing for increased customization options.

All three Scrambler models come with an 18-inch wheel at the front and 17-inch wheels at the rear, wrapped in Pirelli MT60 RS tires. Brembo disc brakes are standard, with a 330mm front disc ensuring robust stopping power. The approachable seat height of 795mm remains unchanged, offering a comfortable riding experience for a wide range of riders.

With its latest updates, the new Ducati Scrambler brings a fusion of modern technology, enhanced performance, and distinctive design to motorcycle enthusiasts in the Philippines. Ducati enthusiasts and riders can look forward to experiencing the renowned Scrambler’s versatility and iconic styling on the country’s roads and beyond.

The exact launch date and arrival of the bikes aren’t disclosed at this time.
