For an 800-cc motorcycle like the Scrambler you’d expect dual discs in the front but instead they’ve used a single 330-mm mono disc from the Panigale at the front and a 245-mm disc at the rear, both by Brembo. The braking power is progressive, the front disc has more than enough stopping power and ABS comes standard, though you do have the option to switch it off. For tyres, the Scrambler has specially developed semi-knobby Pirellis with 110/80 R18 at the front and 180/55 R17 at the rear. These wide tyres provided a decent amount of grip on some of the off-road terrain and the suspension set-up was good enough to absorb bumps without throwing you off.
Overall, the Ducati Scrambler has enough grunt to keep you happy whether you’re riding in the city or out on the open roads. It’s true to the Ducati performance heritage and it fills Ducati’s need for a budget commuter, off-road scrambler, and overall “fun” motorcycle. The Scrambler is a small non-intimidating, multi-purpose fun-to-ride motorcycle and at an expected price tag of about Rs 6 lakh (for the Icon model when it comes to India), it makes for a good entry-point model for any rider wanting to enter the Ducati territory.
