New Delhi: Italian superbike maker Ducati on Wednesday announced that it will launch 12 motorcycle brands in 2021 in the Indian market, starting with the MY2021 Scrambler Icon.
Bookings for the BS-VI Scrambler Icon and Scrambler Icon Dark are now open. It can be booked through the nearest dealerships at an initial payment of INR 50,000.
The other launches include Multistrada V4, Streetfighter V4, Monster, SuperSport 950 and the Scrambler Nightshift along with updated BS-VI-compliant models.
Ducati said all the planned new launches were delayed due to the Coronavirus-induced disruptions in the business. However, a positive end to 2020 on the back of three BS IV-compliant bikes in quick succession allows the company to look towards the future with confidence.
“For us, at Ducati, the majority of our launches and plans were pushed to 2021 and this year is going to be one of the most exciting years for us, with new launches planned in every quarter,” Ducati India managing director Bipul Chandra, said.
The two-wheeler manufacturer will kickstart the expansion with the roll-out of the BS-VI models of Scrambler, Diavel and the new XDiavel in the first quarter of the year. These will be followed by the launch of all-new motorcycles based on the V4 engine platform, including the Multistrada V4, the Streetfighter V4 and MY2021 Panigale V4.
In the latter half of the year, it will roll out its all-new offering, the Monster, followed by the SuperSport 950 and the Hypermotard 950 RVE.
Ducati will resume activities like DRE Dream Tour, Off-Road Days, Track Days, individual racetrack training sessions and introduce DRE Safety
