BORGO PANIGALE – (Bologna) – November 12, 2020 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – The journey to discover the new Ducati 2021 range continues with the second episode of the Ducati World Première web series revealing to the world the latest news about the two XDiavel and Ducati Scrambler families. Two worlds very distant from each other, but which share an essential trait: a unique, distinctive, and nonconformist personality.
The XDiavel is a cruiser with Ducati genes; the result of the contamination between two apparently distant universes. The relaxed pace at low speed typical of the Cruiser world and the adrenaline of Ducati’s own sporty riding both find space in this elegant, technological and fun bike.
For 2021, Ducati renews the XDiavel range by introducing a new version for North America: XDiavel Dark. In addition, all XDiavel models become Euro 5, gaining 8 hp and 0.2 kgm in maximum power and torque values, with a smoother delivery curve.
The XDiavel Dark enhances the beauty of the Ducati cruiser shape thanks to the essentiality of the matte black color. On the XDiavel Dark, the total black livery has also been extended to the mechanical components, plates, and finishes, enhancing one of Ducati’s “Reduce to the Max” design principles. The XDiavel Dark represents purity, essentiality, and the gateway to the XDiavel world.
After having already previewed the Ducati Scrambler 1100 Dark PRO, the entry-level model to the 1100 range, proposed in “Dark Stealth” color with round mirrors and natural brushed aluminium finishes, the Ducati Scrambler brand now unveils the other innovations for 2021.
The 800 range of the “Land of Joy” is expanded with the arrival of the new Ducati Scrambler Nightshift model, the introduction of a new Desert Sled version with “Sparking Blue” livery and even more off-road details and finally a new color scheme for the Ducati Scrambler Icon.
The Ducati Scrambler Nightshift is an essential bike with a bold character, inspired by the metropolitan world. This model, with classic lines and dark colors that evoke the atmosphere of the night, is characterized by a straight and narrow handlebar with café racer mirrors. The number plates and the absence of a rear mudguard in full throttle style give the bike a more aggressive touch and make it visually compact. The bike is also equipped with a new flat two-seat saddle, comfortable for both rider and passenger.
The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled changes its look with the adoption of the new “Sparking Blue” livery, enriched with red and white details on the fuel tank, mudguards and gold rims — a tribute to the Enduro bikes of the 80s. The new anti-slip lining for the seat, together with the 200mm fork travel and headlight mesh guard as standard underline its true off-road character.
Finally, the unmistakable Ducati Scrambler Icon in 2021 will also arrive in dealerships in “Ducati Red” color, which goes alongside the classic “62 Yellow” with black frame and black seat.
For model year 2021, the bikes of the Ducati Scrambler brand become compliant with the EURO 5 norm that regulates the emission of pollutants.
The new XDiavel Dark will retail for an MSRP of $19,995 and will be available in U.S. dealerships beginning in January 2021, followed by availability in Canada in March 2021. The Scrambler Nightshift will retail at an MSRP of $10,995 and will be available in U.S. and Canadian dealerships in March 2021. Finally, the Scrambler Icon in 62 Yellow and Ducati Red will retail at an MSRP of $9,695.
The press kits of all the new Ducati Scrambler and XDiavel models are available on Ducati Media House. On Ducati.com it is possible to watch the presentation episode of the bikes, which is also available for embed on the Ducati YouTube channel.
