Getting a model makeover are three machines from the 2019 Ducati Scrambler family – the 2019 Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle, Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer and Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled. Dubbed the “Joyvolution”, these three Scrambler models are variants on the Scrambler Icon, which harks back to the retro bikes of the ’60s.

Still carrying the same air-cooled 803 cc V-twin – now with black painted crankcases with brushed fins – producing 73 hp at 8,250 rpm and 67 Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm. The trio of Ducati retro bikes now come with a new LED headlight with DRL, and auto-cancelling LED turn signals while the adjustable lever clutch action has been adjusted to be softer.

Bosch two-channel cornering ABS is standard across the range and the Scrambler Desert Sled comes with an off-road mode. Switchgear has been redesigned to be ergonomic, making it easier for the rider to scroll through the menus for various settings.

The Scrambler Full Throttle now comes with a two-tone black-yellow tank, with white stripe and racing inspired passenger seat cover and rear end. Styling on the Full Throttle is inspired by flat trackers, with a new flat seat, lower handlebar and Termignoni dual-tailpipe exhaust homologated for road use.

Rolling on 17-inch wheels shod with Pirelli Diablo Rosso III rubber, the Scrambler Cafe Racer comes equipped with a radial master brake cylinder, the same as many modern performance bikes. The new Silver Ice Matt livery and blue frame on the Cafe Racer is a call back to the racing Ducatis of the ’60s, notably the 125GP Desmo.

Extending the off-road prowess of the Scrambler Desert Sled is a model specific 860 mm tall seat, mated to the reinforced off-road frame, now painted red. The swingarm on the Desert is made from aluminium and also specific to the model.

In Malaysia, the 2018 Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer retails for RM64,999, while the Full Throttle goes for RM60,282. Meanwhile the Scrambler Desert Sled can be purchased for RM64,999.
