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.

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.
2021 Ducati Scrambler 800 engine
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.
2021 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled
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.
