The two models join the Icon, Icon Dark and the Scrambler 1100 Dark Pro in Ducati India’s Scrambler portfolio.

The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled and new Scrambler Nightshift have joined the Italian manufacturer’s India line-up, priced at Rs 10.89 lakh and Rs 9.8 lakh (ex-showroom, India), respectively.

  • 2021 Ducati India Scrambler range gets new Nightshift variant

  • Desert Sled model gets new colour schemes

  • 803cc, L-twin, air-cooled engine is now Euro-5 compliant

The two models made their international debut in November 2020, and have now made their way to India. The Scrambler Nightshift is a new addition to the line-up even in international markets, while the Desert Sled received minor tweaks for 2021.

The 2021 Ducati Scrambler range, unsurprisingly, now complies with Euro 5 (BS6) norms. The entire range is powered by an 803cc, L-twin, air-cooled engine that makes 72hp at 8,250rpm and 66.2Nm of peak torque at 5,750rpm.

As the name suggests, the Scrambler Nightshift features a matte grey and charcoal colour scheme. There aren’t too many blacked-out bits like we’ve seen on some of Ducati’s recent models, such as the Ducati Diavel Dark, but it is a step away from the usually bright and colourful schemes of the Scrambler 800 range.

With regard to the styling, the bike features no rear mudguard, and this gives it a clean tail section. The use of a flat seat is also a nice retro touch.

The 2021 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled stays largely similar to its predecessor, barring the addition of a Sparkling Blue livery. It includes some red and white details on the fuel tank and mudguards, and gold rims – a tribute to the enduro bikes of the 1980s. Some other changes to this new iteration include the addition of a new seat and mesh headlight cover.
