Ducati Scrambler

Konsep Ducati CR241 dan Ducati RR241 telah dipamerkan di acara Bike Shed Moto Show, London.

Kedua-dua konsep berasaskan Ducati Scrambler (atau Scrambler Ducati) dan sudah pastinya tujuan mereka ialah untuk mempamerkan keupayaan Centro Stile Ducati. Oleh itu, kedua-duanya menggunakan 803cc penyejuk udara 90 darjah V-Twin daripada Ducati Scrambler.

Konsep Ducati CR241

Ducati CR241 mempersembahkan versi café racer yang telah berkembang, walaupun  ia mengekalkan inspirasi rekabentuk mesin perlumbaan tahun 1960-an, seperti fairing yang dipasang pada tangki bahan api seperti Pantah dan 750SS. Ia kemudiannya diberi sentuhan moden seperti warna dan bentuk yang moden. Ducati berkata ia bertujuan “untuk membangkitkan emosi dan nostalgia peminat rocker British tahun 60-an.”

Elemen utama lain termasuk rim hadapan 17 inci dengan tayar jalan dan bar hendal dengan cermin di hujung. Pelana boleh ditukar menjadi satu tempat duduk, sekali gus kelihatan seperti pelana “panettone” klasik pada motosikal perlumbaan tahun 1970-an.

Konsep Ducati RR241

Sementara itu, model Ducati RR241 mendapat rawatan pasca kiamat (apocalypse) dengan estetika minimalisnya: dua roda, tangki, enjin dan hendal.

Semua bahagian aluminium dibiarkan terdedah, manakala penutup tangki digantikan dengan bingkai yang mana penunggang boleh memasang beg tangki untuk barang keperluan. Pelana bahagian pembonceng juga boleh ditanggalkan untuk dijadikan rak bagasi, dan ekzos Termignoni yang dipasang tinggi melengkapkan penampilannya.

Tayar Pirelli Scorpion Rally dipasang pada rim 18-inci dan 17-inci, dan madgad depan yang tinggi menyatakan ia sudah bersedia untuk menghadapi kesukaran. Apa yang diperlukan sekarang ialah pemegang senjata dan arahan tentang cara menapis petroleum menjadi petrol.

Adakah mereka akan masuk tahap produksi?

Kedua-dua konsep itu telah dipamerkan di acara Bike Shed Moto Show, dari 24 hingga 26 Mei. Malangnya, Ducati tidak menyatakan sama ada mereka akan membawa kedua-dua konsep ke arah produksi. Kita perlu menunggu sehingga Intermot atau Ducati Days pada akhir tahun apabila mereka melancarkan model baharu.

The Ducati CR241 and Ducati RR241 concepts were shown off at the Bike Moto Show Shed, in London.

Both concepts are based on the Ducati Scrambler (or Scrambler Ducati), certainly to showcase Centro Stile Ducati’s capabilities. Thus both utilise the Scrambler’s 803cc air-cooled 90-degree V-Twin.

Ducati CR241 concept

The Ducati CR241 presents an evolved version of the cafe racer, despite maintaining the design cues of 1960s racers such the fairing which mounts to the fuel tank like the Pantah and 750SS. It is then given a modern twist like the colour scheme, flow of the lines. Ducati says it is meant “to stir the emotions of the most nostalgic and passionate fans of ‘60s British rockers iconography.”

Other key key elements include the 17-inch front rim with road tires and clip-on handlebars with bar-end mirrors. The saddle can be converted into a single-seat unit, thus recalling the classic “panettone” saddles of 1970s sportbikes.

Ducati RR241 concept

Over to the Ducati RR241 model, meanwhile, gets a post-apocalyptic treatment with its minimalist aesthetics: two wheels, a tank, an engine, and handlebars.

All the aluminum parts are left exposed, while the tank is stripped of its covers and replaced by a frame to which riders can attach a tank bag for the essentials. The pillion part of the saddle is also removable to create a luggage rack, and a high-mounted Termignoni exhaust completes the look.

The knobby Pirelli Scorpion Rally tires on 18- and 17-inch rims and a high front fender says it is ready for the apocalypse. All it needs now is gun holder and instructions on how to refine petroleum into gasoline.

Are they going into production?

Both concepts were displayed at the London Bike Shed Moto Show, from 24 to 26 May. Unfortunately, Ducati did not say if they are doing into production. We will have to wait until Intermot or Ducati Days at year end when they traditionally launch new models.

Ducati has announced the start of production of its new Scrambler motorcycle at the Borgo Panigale plant. 

  • Next-generation Ducati Scrambler officially rolls into the production line at the Borgo Panigale factory.

The new Scrambler offers customization possibilities that go beyond the previous model, thanks to the new Icon tank. The cover of the coloured portion can be easily replaced, as can the mudguards, rim tags and headlamp covers. The new model comes in nine colours, including three basic colours and six other options available as an accessory kit.

With a weight reduction of 4 kg, the new Ride-by-Wire and Quick Shift accessory, the Ducati Scrambler offers a brilliant and safe ride.

All models offer a relaxed riding position and low weight, providing enthusiasts of all experience and abilities with great riding pleasure, both in urban journeys and on trips out of town. The Scrambler family has always been a fan favourite, and the new generation is set to continue that legacy.

  • 2023 Ducati Scrambler features three variant; Full Throttle, Icon and Nightshift.
  • All three models gained ride-by-wire functionality and selectable riding modes. 

While we may call it the next-gen, the latest Scrambler range received a small technical updates and stylistic changes across all three models; Icon, Full Throttle and Nightshift. 

As matter of fact, the 2023 Scrambler range continue to feature the same two-cylinder Desmodue engine albeit with a smaller clutch and alternator cover featuring an “X” logo. 

The clutch now features eight disc, ensuring a smoother and lighter gear change during the pull of the lever.

That said, the engine is now 2.5kg lighter than the previous generation which contributed to a total weight loss of 4kg. 

Ducati also claimed that the new Scrambler is sportier thanks to new rear subframe that is now separated from the main frame, while bearing-mounted shift drum contributes to a smoother shifts.

After more than nine months since its global launch, the Ducati Scrambler Nightshift finally lands in Malaysia.

The Nightshift 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, the Nightshift certainly has the boldest look among the rest of its family.

According to Ducati, not only the rider will enjoy riding on a cool-looking Scrambler, but the 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 (now Euro5-compliant).

The new Ducati Scrambler Nightshift is available for RM65,900 and bookings can be made at every Ducati dealership nationwide.

Ducati Malaysia akhirnya melancarkan Scrambler Nightshift, beberapa bulan selepas model itu diperkenalkan secara global pada November tahun lalu.

Ducati Scrambler Nightshift merupakan di antara empat model Scrambler lain yang turut didedahkan menerusi Ducati Web Series.

Bagaimanapun, varian Nightshift paling mencuri tumpuan tatkala pereka di Borgo Panigale seakan menggabungkan semua elemen dari Icon, Full Throttle dan Cafe Racer .

Hasilnya, sebuah motosikal yang bukan sahaja tampak jahat malah kemas hasil daripada pilihan warna Aviator Grey yang pastinya menganjakan meter ‘hensem’ si penunggang.

Tempat duduk pillion juga yakni lebih selesa dengan permukaan yang rata.

Menurut Ducati, penggunaan handlebar yang lebih lebar ini juga dipinjamkan daripada Scrambler 110 Sport Pro di samping penggunaan lampu LED, rim spoke dan tayar Pirelli MT60.

Meskpun model ini masih lagi didatangkan dengan enjin sama seperti barisan Scrambler 800 lain, 803cc L-Twin yang menawarkan 73hp dan 66.2Nm namun telah dikemaskini bagi mematuhi piawain Euro 5.

Menurut Ducati Malaysia, Scrambler Nightshift ini boleh dimiliki dengan harga RM65,900.

Ducati bakal membuka tirai 2021 dengan empat lagi model dibawah payung Scrambler.

Berdasarkan pelancaran menerusi Ducati World Premier 2020 secara web-series, empat model baharu Scrambler telah diperkenalkan; Ducati Scrambler Nightshift, Desert Sled Sparkling Blue, Icon Ducati Red dan 1100 Dark PRO.

*Ducati Scrambler Nightshift

Bagaimanapun, Scrambler Nightshift paling mencuri tumpuan tatkala pereka di Borgo Panigale seakan mengambil resepi dari Icon, Full Throttle dan Cafe Racer dan kemudian menggaul kesemuanya ke dalam satu kuali.

Hasilnya, sebuah motosikal yang bukan sahaja tampak jahat malah kemas hasil daripada pilihan warna Aviator Grey yang pastinya menganjakan meter ‘hensem’ si penunggang.

Fork depan juga telah dipertingkat dengan 200mm travel, dan tempat duduk baharu dengan lining anti-gelincir sekaligus menjaminkan tunggangan off-road yang lebih selesa dan terkawal.

*Ducati Scrambler 1100 Dark Pro

Kemudian, Ducati perkenalkan 1100 Dark PRO, seperti namanya, model ini mendapat sentuhan warna serba hitam dengan gabungan hitam matte dan anodized aluminium.

Ducati sememangnya antara motosikal yang menawarkan rekaan paling mencuri tumpuan maka tidak terkejut jika jenama itu menjadi inspirasi pengeluar motosikal lain di dunia.

Bagaimanapun, ada juga yang mencari jalan mudah dengan menyalin bulat-bulat rekaan motosikal Itali itu.

*Lifan Hunter 125

Lifan, jenama motosikal di China telah memperkenalkan Hunter 125 pada 2017.

Menariknya, rupa keseluruhan jentera ini tampak seperti Ducati Scrambler Icon 800.

Selain daripada rupa keseluruhan, penggunaan lampu bulat, paparan meter termasuk tempat gantung nombor plat dan fork USD juga menyamai Ducati Scrambler.

*Lifan Hunter 125

Bagaimanapun, berbanding enjin 800cc yang terdapat pada Scrambler, Hunter 125 didatangkan dengan enjin 125cc satu silinder dengan penyejukkan udara.

*Lifan Hunter 125

Ketika ini, Lifan Hunter 125 didapati di pasaran Thailand dengan harga serendah THB54,000 (RM7,167).

Walaupun Hunter 125 merupakan salinan Ducati Scrambler namun jelas tindakan Lifan itu berniat menarik pembeli yang berminat dengan rekaan neo-cafe racer namun dengan harga lebih mampu milik.
