2019 Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle, Cafe Racer & Desert Sled launched at INTERMOT

  • The 2019 Ducati Scrambler Icon is now complete with the launch of the updated Full Throttle, Cafe Racer, and Desert Sled series.

  • Officially introduced at INTERMOT 2018, all three bikes were inspired by different areas of riding from track racing to off-road riding.

  • The 2019 Ducati Scrambler range comes with new features such as an updated IMU unit and Cornering ABS as standard.

It comes to as no surprise as Ducati launched the rest of its 2019 Ducati Scrambler range earlier today at INTERMOT 2018 in the form of the 2019 Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle, Cafe Racer and Desert Sled. With the recent introduction of the base 2019 Ducati Scrambler Icon which we tested just a couple of weeks back in Tuscany, Italy, the rest of the range promises to cater to all sorts of riders.

Being one of Ducati’s most popular models, the Ducati Scrambler Joyvolution is will be available in four different variants which take inspirations from different scenes and lifestyles. The 2019 Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle, for example, was designed based on the flat track Scrambler raced by Californian rider, Frankie Garcia, in the 2018 American Super Hooligan Championship.

Coming in hot with its two-tone black and yellow plus white-striped tank, the Full Throttle presents itself to be a machine ready to take on any dirt track. With new parts such as its rear end, dedicated seat, low tapered handlebar, plus many more, the Full Throttle is indeed a Scrambler with a huge dose of attitude.

Moving on to the 2019 Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer, its main inspirations came from the legendary Ducati 125GP Desmo when one sets their eyes on its Silver Ice Matt graphics plus blue frame. The 60s race bike facade can also be seen from its dual tailpipe, nose fairing, lateral plate number holder with the #54 in honour of legendary GP road racer, Bruno Spiaggiari, and stubby mudguard all showcased the 1960s classic race bike aura.

The Cafe Racer also comes with a modern-day radial front brake pump, 17-inch spoked wheels, and aluminium bar-end mirrors to give it a touch of class and even more ‘premium-ness’ compared to the already beautiful Scrambler Icon.

Last and certainly not least, we have the 2019 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled. The spirit of the classic American off-road bikes certainly shines in this particular model without sacrificing any of the true Ducati Scrambler lifestyle design principles.

Being a machine that can handle rougher terrains, the Desert Sled comes with and Off-Road Riding Mode where riders can disengage the ABS for some good times in the dirt or sand. It also features a dedicated riding position plus an adjustable Kayaba suspension for better handling on the roads less travelled. Other exclusive parts include a type-approved headlight mesh guard, high mudguards, and engine skid pan.

The 2019 Ducati Scrambler range also comes with a new six-axis Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) plus Cornering ABS developed from the ones found on Ducati’s top-of-the-range superbike, the Panigale V4. The big question now is when will these babies arrive here in Malaysia? Stay tuned to Bikes Republic for more updates.
