Revised Ducati Scrambler to land late 2023

Ducati has launched the latest generation of its Scrambler motorcycle, due to arrive in Australian dealerships in the fourth quarter of 2023. Set to be priced from $18,000 ride away, it’s dynamic, fun, accessible and safe for everyday use.

The air-cooled twin-cylinder Desmodue engine, trellis frame, wide handlebars, and low centre of gravity pair with advanced electronics and more modern styling to produce three new models; the Icon, Full Throttle and Nightshift.

Three differently styled motorcycles, united by a relaxed riding position and low weight, the new Scrambler range features an iconic front DRL, recognisable at first glance thanks to the 4 circular sectors (a trademark of the Ducati Scrambler universe).

This tapers and becomes sharper to have a more modern and elegant cut. The front headlight, now full LED, retains the iconic “X”, redesigned and applied to the exterior for an even more distinctive style.

The design of the rear light, which remains full LED, also evolves while maintaining the classic and recognisable semicircle shape. Turn signals are now LED too. The steel tank has been redesigned and is equipped with an interchangeable cover.

Elegant anodized aluminium covers below the tank complete the renewed design of the front of the bike. The new instrumentation, with a 4.3-inch colour TFT cluster and dedicated HMI makes the new Ducati Scrambler even more modern.

A key element of the Ducati Scrambler’s personality, the twin-cylinder Desmodue engine  delivers 54kW of power and has new clutch and alternator covers featuring the “X” logo, while the belt covers now have a more refined shape in keeping with the bike’s new style.

The exhaust, also evolved, has even more essential lines and the turn of the headers leaves the engine fully exposed. Now 4kg lighter, thanks to updates to the trellis frame, the Scrambler also features a new swingarm.

The shock absorber has been repositioned towards the centre of the bike, and finally, for a sportier feel, the rear frame is now separate from the main frame. Riding improvements also come from a slightly increased steering angle.

Newly designed 18-inch front and 17-inch rear wheels also feature. A new eight-disc, more compact clutch with a softer pull helps deliver improved engine power, while its new cover shape offers more space for the rider’s foot.

The new Ducati Scrambler is equipped with a bearing-mounted shift drum, which allows
for smoother and more precise shifting, and ride-by-wire throttle management. An optional multimedia system is also available.

Full specifications and local pricing for the entire range will be revealed closer to the arrival of the 2023/24 Ducati Scrambler. For further information, contact your local Ducati dealer.
