Ducati Scrambler Nightshift Joins 2021 Model Range
For the 2021 model year, Ducati has introduced a new Nightshift model to its 800 Scrambler range, as well as exciting new colours for the Icon and Desert Sled.
In essence, the Scrambler Nightshift is a combination of the Full Throttle and Cafe Racer which will no longer be available starting next year. Available in Aviator Grey, the bike is equipped with a flat seat and a straight, narrow handlebar with Cafe Racer mirrors at both ends. Mounted at the end of the swingarm is a Full Throttle-style plate holder.
The new variant also comes with front and rear LED position indicators, as well as spoked wheels measuring 18 inches at the front and 17 inches at the rear, which are wrapped in Pirelli MT60 rubbers.
Scrambler Icon & Desert Sled
The entry-level Scrambler Icon sees the addition of the new Ducati Red colour scheme, which will be sold alongside the existing yellow version, while the Scrambler Desert Sled can now be had in Sparking Blue livery with red and white details on the fuel tank and mudguards and gold rims.
As before, power comes from a 803cc, L-twin engine that makes 73 hp at 8,250 rpm and 66 Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm. The engine is now Euro 5 compliant.
After having already previewed the Ducati Scrambler 1100 Dark PRO, the entry-level model to the 1100 range, proposed in “Dark Stealth” colour with round mirrors and natural brushed aluminium finishes, the Ducati Scrambler brand now also unveils the other innovations for 2021.
The 800 range of the “Land of Joy” is expanded with the arrival of the new Ducati Scrambler Nightshift model, the introduction of a new Desert Sled version with “Sparking Blue” livery and off-road details and also a new colour scheme for the Ducati Scrambler Icon.
The Ducati Scrambler Nightshift is designed as an essential bike with a bold character, inspired by the metropolitan world. This model, with classic lines and dark colours that evoke the atmosphere of the night, is characterized by a straight and narrow handlebar with café racer mirrors. The number plates and the absence of a rear mudguard in full throttle style give the bike an aggressive touch and make it visually compact. The bike is also equipped with a new flat two-seat saddle, comfortable for both rider and passenger.
The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled changes its look with the adoption of the new “Sparking Blue” livery, enriched with red and white details on the fuel tank and mudguards and gold rims, a tribute to the Enduro bikes of the ‘80s. The new anti-slip lining for the seat, together with the 200mm fork travel and headlight mesh guard as standard underline its true off-road character.
Finally, the unmistakable Ducati Scrambler Icon in 2021 will also arrive in dealerships in “Ducati Red” colour, which goes alongside the classic “62 Yellow” with black frame and black seat.
The entire Ducati Scrambler product range is now also in compliance with EURO 5 norms.
