2023 Ducati Scrambler unveiled
Ducati has revealed its new-generation 803cc Scrambler line-up for 2023 and there's three models to choose from - the Icon, the Full Throttle, and the Nightshift.
All three 2023 Ducati Scrambler models look a lot leaner with the new styling, and with an updated chassis, lighter engine, a new ride-by-wire throttle, and a new 4.3-inch TFT display should provide an improved ride experience.
The 2023 Scrambler gets all-LED lighting with the X-design headlight with its catchy DRLs ad tiny turn indicators. The new 4.3 TFT display that sits just behind it looks swanky too and the handlebar controls will allow you to shift through apps once you're connected via Bluetooth. The 2023 Scrambler also gets a new tank design and the customisable coloured body panels, which give it a less laid back appearance. The tail section is a lot tighter too with the new swingarm that drives a shock absorber in a central position and no longer on the left side, then there's the with new tail panels, a slimmer seat as well. The end can is slightly larger than the unit on the older model too. The new rider aid suite - which comprises Cornering ABS, traction control and two ride modes (road and wet).
Ducati say that the 2023 Scrambler is powered by an 803cc air-cooled L-twin motor that's 2.5kg lighter than before and produces the same peak power of 73PS at 8,250rpm as the previous model, while peak torque too remains the same at 65.2NM, albeit comes at a higher 7,000 rpm, while the previous-gen previous Scrambler's claimed peak torque was at 65Nm at 5750rpm.
The 2023 Scrambler Icon model comes in six new colours for the 2023, and feature interchangeable cosmetic components to further enhance the visual appeal of the bike with customisation.
In the new generation Scrambler Icon features a revised steering angle and handlebar position which is now closer to the rider, so as to improve the bike's handling.
2023 Ducati Scrambler Full Throttle
The Scrambler Full Throttle gets a dedicated seat and livery in draped in Rosso GP19/Dark Stealth colourway, which plays on the contrast between the red used on the official Desmosedici MotoGP bikes. The front fender is shorter and sportier, as is the tail without a rear fender. It also gets longer side number plates bearing the number 62 which is a nod to the debut of Ducati's original Scrambler models back in 1962. The bike gets a flat-tracker style skid plate, red tags on the alloy wheels, black finished front side covers, a homologated Termignoni silencer and Ducati Performance LED turn signals.
The handlebars, with variable section, are lower and sportier than on the Scrambler Icon for an even more agile and fun ride. The bike also gets a bi-directional quick shifter as standard as well.
The Nightshift is the more graceful version of the Full Throttle with the same side number plates, minimal front mudguard no rear mudguard and tiny turn indicators. It looks brilliant in the Nebula Blue color scheme, those suave blacked out aluminium finished bits and the all-black spoke wheels.
The new Scrambler Nightshift is equipped with a straight handlebar and Café Racer mirrors on the handlebars. The new seat is flat, Café Racer style, comfortable for both rider and passenger.
