BS6 Ducati Scrambler Nightshift & Scrambler Desert Sled started
After starting the BS6-compliant models of the Ducati scrambler Icon, Icon Dark and 1100 Dark Pro At the beginning of this year, the legendary Italian motorcycle manufacturer launched the more environmentally friendly versions of the Scrambler Nightshift and Desert Sled on the Indian market. Bookings for the new models are possible at all Ducati dealers across the country.
Bipul Chandra, General Manager of Ducati India, said at the launch of the BS6 Ducati Scrambler Nightshift and Desert Sled:
Scrambler is one of the most bohemian and idiosyncratic offers from Ducati. Over the years, our Scrambler customers have taken the lesser-traveled road and achieved things that not only they, but we are very proud of. To introduce more such possibilities, we are pleased to introduce the brand new Scrambler Nightshift and the Desert Sled. The refined design shows the extensive research that has gone into the two motorcycles and we are sure that all new and seasoned riders can use these motorcycles to challenge their driving skills and realize their dreams of owning a scrambler.
The new Ducati Scrambler Nightshift offers an attractive Aviator Gray color option. It’s equipped with a new, flat, cafe-racer-style seat, wide handlebars derived from the 1100 Sport Pro Sport rearview mirrors on the handlebar end. The new motorcycle has flat, track-inspired side number plates with the Classic Scrambler logo. The Nightshift uses spoked wheels with Pirelli MT60 tires, which are said to offer excellent grip.
The BS6 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled is a brand new Sparkling Blue paint job with red and white details on the fuel tank and fenders. It pays homage to the enduro bikes of the 80s and underlines the distinct off-road character of the bike. We also like the gold rims and the classic black frame. The main highlights of the Scrambler Desert Sled include spoked wheels with Pirelli Scorpion Rally ST tires, a new seat, an LED headlight with protective grille, a high front fender, an extended rear fender and adjustable KYB suspension.
The new Ducati Scrambler motorcycles are powered by a standard 803 cm3 L twin engine that complies with BS6 emissions regulations. It was tuned for a maximum output of 73 hp at 8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 66.2 Nm at 5,750 rpm. Ducati has provided a 6-speed gearbox with a servo-assisted slip clutch for the gearbox.
To buy the BS6 Ducati Scrambler Nightshift you would have to pay INR 9.80 lakh *, while the newest model of the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled would set you back at INR 10.89 lakh *.
