New Ducati Scramblers Hit the Shelves in Bulk, Ready for a Record Year

Troubled as it was, 2020 contributed a lot to the rise of means of transportation that call in very few instances for more than two people to come together. Bikes, motorcycles, scooters, all these things enjoyed healthy growth last year, a trend that is likely to continue in the foreseeable future.

For instance, Ducati had a hell of a year, even if it was mostly dedicated to preparing for the new one. The Scrambler range was a hit, as usual, with over 9,200 new bikes being ordered, bringing the total since the line was introduced (2015) to 80,000 and becoming the brand’s best-selling product.

With what’s in store for 2021, Ducati hopes to continue the Scrambler trend. In the last months of 2020, it revealed several novelties for the new year and has now announced they are all available at dealerships.

First up is the Ducati Scrambler Nightshift, a two-wheeler with narrow and aggressive looks, and a new two-seater saddle. Next up is the 1100 Dark PRO, the new entry-level Scrambler sporting a Dark Stealth paint offset here and there by anodized aluminum parts.

The Desert Sled, drawn as a “tribute to the enduro bikes of the ‘80s,” comes in a special color scheme, new non-slip coating for the saddle, and 200-mm (7.9-in) fork travel, “making it the ideal choice for those who want to get off the asphalt roads to tackle adventurous new routes." Last but not least, comes the Icon, available in Ducati Red or the classic 62 Yellow with black frame and black saddle.

With these new additions, there are now seven Scrambler variants (not counting the e-Scrambler urban e-bike), all equipped with the bike maker’s infotainment system allowing for the linking of the motorcycle with the smartphone and the helmet earpiece.

Pricing for each varies depending on location, and you can learn more about that by contacting the bike maker’s local branch.
