Ducati Scrambler History

Ducati’s Scrambler was introduced in 2015 as a sort of side-brand to Ducati. These fun and funky bikes have since captured the imagination of bikers who want simple bikes to enjoy at lower speeds and a bike they can easily customise. It’s fair to say, most Scrambler owners probably wouldn’t have considered a Ducati before the Scrambler was introduced.

Starting off with an 800 in 2015, the first bike used the 803cc engine that was also used in the Monster 796. The Sixty2 was introduced in 2016 and is an A2-friendly Scrambler that’s only 400cc. The Desert Sled was introduced in 2017 and although it is a Scrambler, it is also a proper off-road capable bike. There’s also a Mach 2 which was introduced in 2017 as an out of the box Custom Retro. There’s also the Cafe Racer, Full Throttle and now the Icon which amazingly includes cornering ABS.

So if you’re in any way inclined towards a retro-looking bike, or you just want a cool around-town motorcycle the Scrambler is a great bet.

There’s also a larger 1100 Scrambler which is aimed at attracting older more experienced riders and other Ducati owners who like the Scrambler style but want a bit more get-up-and-go.

Ducati Scrambler lithium motorcycle battery

Did you know that the Scrambler runs a YT12B-BS battery? The stock battery weighs 4.1kg, but you could save 3.2kg by fitting a lightweight lithium battery. The model you need is a YT12B-Bs lithium, and it weighs just 0.9kg

Our lithium batteries come with a 24-month warranty. They are maintenance-free and last twice as long as a regular lead-acid battery. It’s a direct replacement for your original battery, so just unplug your old one and fit a lightweight lithium in minutes.
