While it might look like the classic Ducati Scrambler Icon with a new paint job, the new Scrambler Icon Dark is an entirely new beast. It shares plenty of classic Scrambler DNA but it has an entirely new character, with a whole host of exciting updates that set it apart from the rest.
It’s not just a regular Scrambler Icon painted black, but the new look is one of the most interesting features. The muted, blacked-out aesthetics, and brushed aluminum accents, make it an understated and unconventional choice for a city-commuter, but it looks the part and serves as the perfect platform for aftermarket customization.
Underneath the Icon Dark’s cool exterior, it features an 803cc air-cooled desmodromic L-twin engine—the same unit found on most Ducati Scrambler models—which produces 73 horsepower at 8,250 rpm, and 49 lb-ft of peak torque at 5,750 rpm. It packs more than enough power, and promises a top speed somewhere in the region of 125 mph, which is plenty.
The new Icon Dark boasts a number of exciting upgrades as well as the new color, including a premium LED lighting suite, a brand new seat for greater rider and passenger comfort, compatibility with Ducati’s Multimedia System, new hydraulic clutch control, new switch gears, and dual-channel cornering ABS from Bosch.
Understandably, the 2020 Ducati Scrambler Icon Dark is only available in one color: matt black. However, it does feature some eye-catching aluminum touches to accentuate the black finish. Prices for the Icon Dark start from $8,795.
