Ducati had to discontinue the earlier versions, which were BS3/Euro-3 compliant, in response to the implementation of more stringent emission standards.
Sadly, top-of-the-line 1299 Panigale is not coming back to the Indian shores. Instead, Ducati has a new V4-powered superbike in the pipeline.
Reports suggest Ducati dealers have already started bookings for the Icon and Classic variants of the upgraded Scrambler. Deliveries of these motorcycles could begin next month. While its ‘Full Throttle’ version will arrive in September 2017.
The middleweight streetfighter – the Monster 821 – will be launched along with the power cruiser – the Diavel – sometime in October 2017.
