Ducati Scrambler has been redesigned with new design elements and electronic aids. The engine produces 73 bhp and 65 Nm.
Ducati has unveiled the Scrambler motorcycle line for 2023. The Italian manufacturer has unveiled three different models. Icon, Full Throttle, and Nightshift are available. The India launch is anticipated to take place after the motorcycles arrive in dealerships around the world in March 2023. Ducati has improved its vehicles mechanically and cosmetically.
Due to the new bolt-on sub-lighter frame’s weight than the previous one, the Ducati Scrambler is now 4 kg lighter. New parts have also been added to the engine. It uses the same air-oil cooled, two valve, 803 cc Desmoduo engine. It generates 65 Nm at 7,000 rpm and 73 bhp at 8,250 rpm. It is mated to a six-speed transmission.
The Ducati Scrambler has two riding modes, Wet and Road, for electronic assistance. Traction control, an anti-lock braking system for corners, LED lighting as standard, and a new 4.3-inch TFT instrument cluster are additional features. A Bluetooth connectivity module is also available as an accessory from Ducati.
The Icon is the base model and features a new handlebar that is lower and sits closer to the rider. Together with the fuel tank, graphics, and side panels, the seat has also undergone redesigning.
The most sporty version of the 2023 Scrambler lineup is the Full Throttle trim. It takes its cues from flat track racing on dirt ovals in the United States. The number 62 is displayed on the side panels, and a new skid plate has also been attached. A street-legal Termignoni silencer, Ducati Performance LED turn signals*, a standard Quick Shift up/down, a dedicated livery, a sporty seat cover, a shorter fender, a tail without a rear fender, red tags on the alloy wheels, and the black-finished exhaust finish off the package.
The Nightshift, the most stylish Scrambler among the three, comes in last. It features spoked wheels, bar-end mirrors, a flat handlebar, and a cafe racer design. Some components, such as the small front fender, lack of rear fender, side number plates, black finishes for the aluminium aesthetic details, and compact LED turn signals, are borrowed from the Full Throttle variant.
