On July 22–24, 2022, Ducati hosted World Ducati Week at the Misano World Circuit in Italy. In the Race of the Champions, Ducati MotoGP and WSBK riders competed against one another. While Ducatisti marveled at the brand's most recent Panigale, Streetfighter, Multistrada, and DesertX models in addition to the on-track action, a sneak peek at the upcoming 2023 Scrambler stole the show.
Ducati prohibited visitors and media from taking pictures of the redesigned classic, but textual reports indicate a thinner, lighter build and improved electronics. The 2023 Scrambler will weigh five kilos less than its predecessor, according to multiple European sites. The beginner-friendly naked drops from 189 kilos to 184 kilograms as a result of the weight loss.
Not only is the Scrambler lower in weight, but it also looks lighter. The Ducati has a slimmer profile thanks to changes to the frame, swingarm, and cast wheels, but the broader passenger seat is better for two-up trips. We don't foresee any significant power enhancements in 2023, although the chassis may see a few revisions. The oil/air-cooled, Desmodromic, 803cc L-twin now complies with Euro 5 regulations, so chances are there won't be any major changes to this motor.
Ducati has added a ton of go-fast features to the new Scrambler even though the engine is probably going to stay the same. Performance should be improved with a slipper clutch and quickshifter, and full LED illumination will set the standard. It appears that the Scrambler will also do away with its circular LCD dash in favor of a rectangular, color TFT dash. Additionally, the sneak look suggested that in 2023, Ducati may introduce replaceable gas tank covers. Similar custom-friendly features can be found on rival neo-retros, and add a touch of customizability for this well-loved machine.
