Ducati Australia will release its refreshed Scrambler 2021 line-up in the first half of next year, with a new Nightshift variant replacing the Full Throttle and Cafe Racer, priced from $18,000 rideaway. 

The more adventurous Scrambler Desert Sled, priced from $19,500, sees new details and a Sparking Blue colour scheme, while the Nightshift adopts a compact cafe-racer stance with dark colours.

The updated Icon has been revealed overseas with a new Ducati Red colour option, while performance specifications remain unchanged across the range.

Ducati’s local wing has yet to confirm availability of the entry-level Icon, however, INFO MOTO has contacted the brand for more information and will update this story accordingly.

Distinguishing the Ducati Scrambler Nightshift is wire-spoked wheels, straight-and-narrow handlebars, bar-end mirrors, a deleted rear guard and Pirelli MT60 tyres.

As before, the Desert Sled stands out with its dedicated red frame, 19-inch front wheel, mesh headlight guard and skid plate.

Off-road features include adjustable Kayaba suspension, footpegs with removable rubber pads, Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres and an ABS-switching Off-Road rider mode.

Motivating the Ducati Scrambler range is an 803cc L-twin delivering 54kW and 68Nm, while tech features include LED lighting, lean-angle sensitive ABS and a round LCD instrument cluster.

Recently, Ducati Australia released its larger and sportier Scrambler 1100 Pro and Sport Pro, priced from $18,400 and $21,100, respectively.

The Ducati 1100 range uses a 63kW/88Nm 1079cc L-twin motor borrowed from the previous Monster naked bike.
