Ducati Scrambler Nightshift launched in India along with new Desert Sled

Ducati has launched two new BS6 models in the Ducati Scrambler family, the Scrambler Desert Sled in a new colour, and the new Scrambler Nightshift. The new Ducati Scrambler Nightshift is priced at ₹ 9.80 lakh (Ex-showroom), and will replace the Scrambler Cafe Racer and Full Throtlle variants. The Scrambler Nightshift is essentially a blend of the two models, and sports a cafe racer styled seat, wide aluminium handlebar, rather than cafe racer-styled clip-ons, and a chopped front mud-guard. The rear mud-guard has been completely done away with. The 803 cc, L-twin, two-valve engine is finished in black and puts out 73 bhp at 8,250 rpm and 66.2 Nm of peak torque at 5,750 rpm. The Nighshift is equipped with Pirelli MT60 tyres with spoked wheels.

Bipul Chandra, Managing Director of Ducati India said, “Scrambler is one of the most bohemian and maverick offerings from the house of Ducati. Over the years, our Scrambler customers have taken the road less travelled and have achieved things which is a matter of great pride, not only them, but for us as well. To introduce more such possibilities, we are delighted to introduce the all-new Scrambler Nightshift and the Desert Sled. The sophisticated design shows the extensive research which has gone behind the two bikes and we surely believe that all riders, new and experienced, will be able to use these motorcycles to challenge their riding skills and fulfill their dreams of owning a Scrambler.”
