Held at Ducati Sg.Buloh this morning, Next Bike Sdn Bhd (a subsidiary of the Naza Group of Companies) has officially launched not one, but all four variants of the new Scrambler by Ducati!
Set to go on tour soon, the Scrambler by Ducati (or just Ducati Scrambler as its colloquially known) comes in 4 variants, namely the Icon, Urban Enduro, Full Throttle and Classic. The Icon is priced at RM57,333, while the other three are priced at RM64,888 each (all prices include GST).
“A contemporary interpretation of the original 70’s icon”, the Scrambler is powered by an 800cc air-cooled ‘L’-twin cylinder, fuel-injected engine that’s capable of producing 75bhp. It also comes with ABS and (get this) a USB charging port under the seat!
“Following the (Scrambler’s) exclusive preview in October last year, we knew this model would be a hit with motorcycle lovers all over Malaysia” said Datuk Wira Hj. SM Faisal Tan Sri SM Nasimuddin, Group Executive Chairman & Group CEO Naza World of Companies. “It’s with great excitement that we now have the entire range of Scramblers by Ducati available in our market” he added.
The Scrambler by Ducati line-up…
The Icon – characterized by its comfortable riding position and steel teardrop tank with interchangeable aluminium side panels, is the starting point from which to express yourself. The 790mm seat height ensures comfort for both the rider and passenger. Stand-out features include the wide handlebar, the headlight with glass lens and LED guide-light, and the Dual Sport wheels. An aluminum finish for the belt covers; the heat guard and the interchangeable surround of the characteristic LCD instrument panel all enrich the style of the bike. Available in two colours: ’62 Yellow and Ducati Red.
The Urban Enduro – (in Wild Green) is the ideal companion with which to get around urban obstacles with agility, but also to reach new places, riding on the less travelled roads. The brown seat with a ribbed design, lined with technical fabrics, offers first-class ergonomic comfort. The fork protectors, engine sump guard and the headlight grille protect the key parts of the bike on off-road sections, while the cross bar stiffens the wide handlebar. Additional references to the off-road world include the high mudguard in plastic fiber and the spoke wheels.
The Full Throttle – (in Deep Black) is inspired by the flat track world and makes clear references to the bikes that race around dirt ovals. It is equipped with a Termignoni racing exhaust homologated for road use, a seat designed for racing and black side panels with dedicated graphics. The low tapered handlebar and the short front mudguard add to the distinctive features of the Scrambler Full Throttle, destined for those who want a bike perfect for every-day use but without compromising on racing style.
The Classic – (in Orange Sunshine) is aimed at those who appreciate attention to detail and 1970s style, but who don’t want to compromise on riding pleasure and the functionality of a modern bike. It is characterised by unique, refined details, such as the aluminium front and rear mudguards, the spoke wheels and the brown seat with diamond-shaped inserts.
