Italian luxury motorcycle maker Ducati has finally launched the next-generation Scrambler range in the Indian market, following its unveiling in November 2022. The Scrambler line-up has been updated for the model year 2023, with an all-new design as well as a few electronic & mechanical tweaks. Three differently styled motorcycles – the Icon, Full Throttle, and the Nightshift – can be had at a starting price of Rs 10.39 lakh for the base model. Whereas, both the Full Throttle and the Nightshift models are available at the same price, Rs 12 lakh. Prices are ex-showroom, New Delhi. In terms of the mechanicals, all of them come powered by an 803cc, two-valve, air/oil-cooled Desmoduo engine that cranks out 72bhp at 8,250rpm and 65Nm of peak torque at 7,000rpm. While the engine remains largely the same, there are a few tweaks. It is equipped with a Ride-by-Wire throttle control for smooth acceleration, whereas its bore and stroke stand at 88mm and 66mm, respectively. To keep weight under check, the clutch cover and alternator have aluminium guards.

Along with new engine components, the new Ducati Scrambler line-up uses a tubular steel trellis frame with a lightweight bolt-on sub-frame, making it lighter by 4kgs than its predecessor. The transmission duties are taken care of by a 6-speed gearbox, accompanied by a quickshifter.

On the looks front, almost every panel on the bikes has been redesigned, from the tank to the side panels, seat, and swing arm. The Scrambler Icon is the most accessible unit out of the three. Up front, it comes with a revised handlebar that is lower and closer to the rider, a new flatter seat measuring 795mm in height, and black under-seat side panels with Ducati Scrambler graphics. This model can be had in 3 different colours – Ducati Red, '62 Yellow, and Thrilling Black. These three standard colours are joined by 6 others offered as accessories. 

Next up is the Full Throttle. It is the sportiest of the lot. It also has a lower handlebar and comes with circular LED turn indicators, short fenders, and black-finished exhaust heat shields & front side covers. Other design bits include red tags on the alloy wheels, Termignoni silencer, and a bi-directional quickshifter as standard. Further, the bike flaunts a race-inspired GP19 Red/Dark livery with a number #62 badge. Available as an accessory is the Rosso GP19 seat cover, giving the bike a sporty single-seat look.

Ducati Scrambler Nightshift

Last but not least, the Scrambler Nightshift boasts a flat-set variable-section handlebar, bar-end mirrors, circular LED indicators, and wire-spoke wheels as standard. It is offered in a single Nebula Blue paint option.
