The second web-launch series of the 2021 Ducati World Premiere has just aired yesterday where four new 2021 Scrambler Ducati models were unveiled (well, more like one new model and three updated 2020 models). For 2021, you can get the 2021 Ducati Scrambler Nightshift, Desert Sled “Sparkling Blue”, Icon “Ducati Red”, and 1100 Dark PRO.
Starting with the Nightshift, it looks like a combination of the Icon, Full Throttle, and Café Racer rolled into one midnight-themed machine and it is indeed a badass machine at first sight. Finished in the new Aviator Grey colour scheme, which looks cool for you and your passenger.
Speaking of passenger, your pillion will also appreciate the comfort from its new Café Racer-style flat seat. Other details include a wide handlebar taken straight from the 1100 Sport Pro, premium LED lighting system, spoke wheels with Pirelli MT60 tyres, and side number plates.
Firepower remains the same as the rest of the Scrambler 800 line-up in the form of the 803cc L-twin engine with 73hp and 66.2Nm torque (which is now Euro5-compliant). For the European market, you can get one from €10,990, which is around 53,452 in direct conversion.
The second updated model is the Ducati Scrambler Icon, which will be made available in iconic “Ducati Red” colour scheme. Dressed just like its sportier siblings, the specs of the Ducati Red Icon remain the same, apart from the now Euro5-compliant 803cc L-twin engine.
Thirdly, we have the beautiful 2021 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled finished in the “Sparkling Blue” livery. What you’ll get with this model is an 80’s inspired endure machine with red, white, and blue details together with gold spoke wheels (very American).
This beauty has also been off-road enhanced with a new fork with 200mm travel, standard headlight mesh guard, and a new seat with anti-slip lining. Out of all the Scrambler models, this is by far the most off-road oriented machine that can travel the distance.
Finally, we have the 1100 Dark PRO. In essence, the specs are identical to the 1100 Pro apart from almost every part getting the blacked-out treatment. What you’ll get with this baby are the matt black colour, natural anodized aluminium parts (finished in Dark Stealth), and classic style rearview mirrors.
