Over the past couple of weeks, Ducati has held a series of online events dedicated to launching its 2021 lineup of motorcycles. Last week, we were introduced to the new Ducati Multistrada V4 — a bike that’s sure to come as a heavy hitter in the massively popular high capacity adventure segment. This time, Ducati has introduced a slew of updates to its best-selling Scrambler range.
For starters, the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled gets a new Sparkling Blue livery for next year. Featuring gold wheels and a dominantly blue colorway with contrasting red accents, the new Sled looks even more off-road ready. New colors were also launched for the Scrambler Icon. Customers will now have the options of classic Ducati Red, 62 Yellow, and Atomic Orange.
Ducati also launched an all-new variant of the Scrambler dubbed the Nightshift. Granted, it shares the same underpinnings as the other 800 cc Scramblers, it nonetheless has a pretty cool color scheme that’s sure to catch your fancy. The Scrambler Nightshift features a matte silver-blue color scheme with all chrome bits and pieces blacked out. It gets a drag bar that gives the bike a slightly aggressive stance, while a flat two-up saddle further enhances the cafe racer aesthetic. It also features wire-spoke wheels and retro-styled rally number plates on the sides.
We can expect the updated Scramblers to make their way to the Philippine market sometime next year. Ducati has pegged the new Desert Sled in the US market at $11,995, the new Icon at $9,695, and the Nightshift at $10,995. Of course, we can expect the prices of the local bikes to be significantly higher, given all the importation and legal processes they need to go through in order to be sold on Philippine shores.
