In 2015, Ducati wowed riders in India with the debut of the first-generation Scrambler Icon, showcasing remarkable on-road performance. The anticipation for its successor built over eight years, leading to the recent unveiling of the second-generation Scrambler Icon. But does the long wait translate into a bike worth the anticipation?

Design Tweaks and Technological Advancements

The front end now features a fresh LED headlight with a distinctive X design at the center, complemented by Daytime Running Lights (DRL). Further enhancements include LED technology for the tail light and indicators, along with upgraded Kayaba suspension at both ends.


Tech Upgrade: TFT Display and More
