While the bikes announced are not completely new models, they do all coincide with the Scrambler and XDiavel line ups gaining the all-important Euro5 certification.

Ducati Scrambler Nightshift

As the name would suggest, the Scrambler Nightshift features matt finishes and moody grey and charcoal colours. It’s not as blacked out and stealthy as the XDiavel Dark or Black Star we reported on earlier, although it’s definitely a fresh take on the usually bold and colourful model.

The bike features a mudguard-less rear end, making the tail of the bike look clean and uncluttered. And the blacked-out badging again adds to the mean aesthetic of what is, predominantly, quite a ‘cute’ bike. The bike also features a flat, two-seat saddle.

The Scrambler Desert Sled has also had a makeover for 2021, with a new, retro enduro-inspired Sparkling Blue livery. It includes some red and white details on the fuel tank and mudguards and gold rims, a tribute to the Enduro bikes of the ‘80s. The final changes are a new anti-slip seat cover and mesh headlight guard.

The final bike in the Scrambler range to get a freshen up is the Ducati Scrambler Icon which for 2021 will also be available in Ducati Red colour, which goes alongside the 62 Yellow with black frame and black seat.

The Scrambler Desert Sled will be available from the end of November and the Scrambler Nightshift from December. The new Scrambler Icon will be available in dealerships from the end of January.
