Less Is More: The No-Frills Ducati Scrambler Icon
The 2021 Ducati line-up doesn’t feature any drastic changes to the Scrambler models, though a few of them did receive small updates. The classic Scrambler Icon is one of them! The updates might be minimal but they’re updates nonetheless. Plus, since this is one of the cheapest Ducati motorcycles in the range, it’s hard to find fault with the Icon. It’s a base-model Scrambler but it still has plenty of character of its own.
Under the proverbial hood, this Italian-made motorcycle now features a Euro5 compliant engine. Small changes to the 803cc Desmodromic L-twin engine have made it more emissions friendly without compromising the power output, which is still rated at 73 horsepower and 48.8 lb-ft of peak torque. Despite its budget nature, the Scrambler Icon still gets some nice riding aids, including cornering ABS, and choice rider comforts, such as full LED lighting suite and LCD instrumentation.
What makes the Icon what it is the addition of a dedicated logo, a unique Icon-specific handlebar, matching mudguards, and an aluminum muffler cover. Compared with the rest of the range, it’s a little underwhelming in the accessories department—but that’s why riders love it. It’s a no-frills Scrambler that offers a truly authentic riding experience.
For 2021, the Scrambler Icon is available in two color options: classic “62 Yellow,” and a brand new “Rosso Ducati” red.
The 2021 Ducati Scrambler Icon starts from $9,695 USD / $11,195 CAD.
