The Ducati Scrambler may be the entry point into Ducati ownership but itâ€™s a terrific motorcycle in its own right. Small and nimble, the Ducati Scrambler packs a powerful air/oil-cooled V twin motor and a capable chassis that is as happy on smooth roads as it is on dirt trails. The Scrambler appeals with itâ€™s versatility. It can be an absolute weapon in traffic but as we found out in our anniversary issue it is equally at home when we’re tearing it up in the harsh environment of Ladakh. One for the enthusiast, the Scrambler is a motorcycle that will never cease to entertain and its relative affordability certainly beckons!
The 2016 CNBC TV18 OVERDRIVE Awards were judged by a panel of experts on a range of criteria (read more about our judging methodology here) including how well they suit the role, value for the money they demand and also how involving they are to drive. No matter the category, we at OVERDRIVE value driver/rider involvement. A vehicle has to put a smile on its pilotâ€™s face, no matter the power or price and thatâ€™s definitely one of the criteria in our judging process.
