2019 Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle and Cafe Racer, Icon and Desert Sled will fuel sales in emerging markets for the company
The Ducati Scrambler Icon is now joined by several new versions: the Full Throttle, inspired by the Flat Track racing scene, the Café Racer, which offers a fresh take on
the legendary bikes of the ’60s that brought about a motorcycling revolution, and the Desert Sled, which puts a Scrambler slant on the Southern California bikes of the ’60s
and ’70s. 2019 Ducati Scrambler details are listed below.
2019 Ducati Scrambler models offer a solid starting point, original accessories will further enhance the creative spirit behind the Ducati Scrambler. These three latest versions incorporate the new aesthetic and technical features introduced with the Icon. On the Scrambler, modern yet authentic materials are combined to perfection. The aluminium of the new, beefier side panels matches the steel of the teardrop tank and the glass of the headlight. Refined features such as the black-painted crankcases and brushed cylinder head fins make the Ducati Scrambler even more
The all-new headlight with DRL (Daytime Running Light) boosts bike visibility in traffic, even in daylight, as do the new auto-off LED indicators. More ergonomic switchgears make it easier for the rider to scroll through the LCD instrument menu, which now includes fuel level info. The Ducati Scrambler’s wide handlebars, new flat seat and renewed suspension set-up merge to provide a more comfortable and relaxed riding position.
New Bosch Cornering ABS maximises active safety during braking, ensuring riders get full-on riding fun. Riders will also appreciate the new softer-feel hydraulic clutch control, while the adjustable lever – like the one on the front brake – ensures the lever handlebar gap can be adapted to individual needs. The Ducati Multimedia System lets you ride while listening to your favourite music, answer incoming calls or chat with the passenger on the intercom.
Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle.
The Full Throttle takes its cue from the flat track Scrambler ridden by California racer Frankie Garcia in the 2018 American Super Hooligan Championship. The two-tone black-yellow tank, with a white stripe and dedicated logo, vividly recalls Garcia’s bike, as does the new racing-inspired rear end. The new seat has a passenger seat cover with a paint job that mirrors that of the tank. Side-mounted yellow number holders with a white trim complete the all-new Full Throttle look. The Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle also features a Termignoni dual-tailpipe exhaust homologated for road use. The low-slung tapered handlebar – light and ergonomic – and the stubby front mudguard add to the unique style of the Scrambler Full Throttle. This is a motorcycle for those who want a perfect every-day bike that retains uncompromising racing style.

Ducati Scrambler Café Racer
The Ducati Scrambler Café Racer is the Scrambler interpretation of the legendary ’60s bikes that triggered a motorcycling revolution of free spirit and style. With its new Silver Ice Matt livery and blue frame, the Scrambler Café Racer recalls Ducati sports bikes of the past such as the 125GP Desmo. Back in the ’60s, in London, a bold, forward-thinking group of young motorcyclists, the “Ton–Up Boys” of the Rocker movement, began setting up their bikes to win the sprint from one café to the next (each race was supposed to last as long as a Juke Box track). Since then, the Café Racer culture has gone global. Ducati Scrambler and the Café Racer culture share a style that extends beyond the
bike to apparel and accessories. Now, the Ducati Scrambler Café Racer offers a fresh take on what was one of motorcycling’s most influential movements. The new 17″ wheels with Pirelli DIABLO™ ROSSO III tyres (120/70 ZR 17 at the front and 180/55 ZR17 at the rear) play a pivotal role on this more-Scrambler-than-ever version, which also provides plenty of scope for personalisation.
Mounted on the handlebar ends, the aluminium rear-view mirrors are inspired by the’60s race look. A modern radial front brake pump provides performance on a par withthat of a sport bike. And that’s not all: the exhaust, with its dual tailpipe and black painted aluminium cover, the nose fairing and stubby mudguard are all clear references to the bikes that roared down British streets in the ’60s. Lastly, the lateral number holders feature the number 54 in honour of Bruno Spiaggiari.

Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled
The Desert Sled comes directly from the deserts and mountains of California and offers a fresh take on the off-road bikes of the ’60s and ’70s that made American history. Desert Sleds were American-born bikes that appeared in Southern California and in Baja California, Mexico, in the ’60s and ’70s. These were road bikes with engine displacements of over 500 cm3, stripped of any non-essential accessories. Fitted with off-road tyres and spoked wheels, they were also given modified suspension systems and engine skid pans. In fact, it’s the engine skid pan – vital in shielding the bike from rocks, stones and the unforgiving desert terrain – that gave the Desert Sled its name. Over the years these bikes became a motorcycle category in their own right: until their arrival, no comparable style had ever been seen. The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled faithfully revives that spirit – but without abandoning the unique Scrambler lifestyle values.
Thanks to the dedicated red frame, swingarm, fork yokes and suspension, the spoked wheels (19″ at the front) and groundbreaking lines, this bike is simply perfect for those who want to get off the asphalt and take a less-beaten track. The off-road capability of the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled is also evident in the type-approved headlight mesh guard, high mudguards (specially designed for this version) and, of course, the engine skid pan. Thanks to a seat with a new lining that maintains a height of 860 mm (a 20 mm lower version is available as an optional), adjustable Kayaba suspension (with 46 mm fork diameter) with 200 mm of travel and off-road style footpegs with removable rubber pads, this Scrambler also has a dedicated riding position. Passenger pegs – separated from the rider’s – are removable.
The Desert Sled also features an Off-Road Riding Mode that allows disengagement of the ABS. Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled wheels are of the spoked type with black rims, 19’’ at the front and 17’’ at the rear. They mount Pirelli SCORPION™ RALLY STR tyres, 120/70 R 19 M/C 60V M+S TL up front and 170/60 R 17 M/C 72V M+S TL at the rear. SCORPION™ RALLY STR tyres provide a unique combination of outstanding off-road and Enduro street performance.
