The journey continues to discover the new Ducati 2021 range with the second episode of the Ducati World Première web series that reveals the news for the two families XDiavel and Scrambler®. Two worlds that are very distant from each other, but which have in common an essential trait: a unique, distinctive and nonconformist personality.
XDiavel is a cruiser with Ducati genes; the result of contamination between two seemingly distant universes. The relaxed low-speed gait typical of the Cruiser world and the adrenaline of Ducati’s own sports guide both find space in this elegant, technological and fun bike.
For 2021 Ducati renews the XDiavel range by introducing two new versions: XDiavel Dark and XDiavel Black Star. In addition, all XDiavel models become Euro 5, gaining 8 hp and 0.2 kgm in maximum power and torque values, with a more regular dispensing curve.
XDiavel Dark enhances the beauty of ducati cruiser shapes thanks to the essentiality of matte black color. On XDiavel Dark the total black livery has also been extended to mechanics, tags and finishes, enhancing one of the Ducati design principles “Reduce to the Max”. The XDiavel Dark represents purity, essentiality and the gateway to the XDiavel world.
The new XDiavel Black Star version instead shows fans the sporty side of the Ducati cruiser, with a livery and equipment inspired by the world of sports cars. The dedicated livery alternates matte grey and black with inevitable touches of red. The color cuts are sharp and intersect taking up the concept of the X that characterizes the family. On this bike no detail has been overlooked: the lids of the engine heads, red, are a reference to the 100% Ducati soul, while the saddle, enriched with a high grip suede fabric, recalls the sportsmanship of the brand.
After having already previewed the Scrambler® 1100 Dark PRO, the entrance model to the 1100 range, proposed in the “Dark Stealth” coloring with round mirrors and natural brushed aluminum finishes, Scrambler
® has also unveiled the other novelties for 2021.
The 800 range of the “Land of Joy” extends with theentry of the new Scrambler ® Nightshift model, the introduction of a new Scrambler version ® Desert Sled with “Sparking Blue” livery® and even more off-road details and finally a new coloring for the Icon.
The Scrambler® Nightshift is an essential bike with a gritty character, inspired by the metropolitan world. This model, with classic lines and dark colors that refer to nocturnal atmospheres, it features a narrow, straight handlebar with café racer mirrors. The number tables and the absence of the full throttle style rear fender give the bike a more aggressive touch and make it visually compact. The bike is also equipped with a new flat bi-seater saddle,convenient for both the rider and the passenger.
The Scrambler® Desert Sled changes its look with the adoption of the new “Sparking Blue”livery, enriched with red and white details on the tank and on the fenders and gold rims,a tribute to the enduro bikes of the 80s. The new anti-slip coating for the saddle,togetherwith the 200 mm fork excursion and the standard headlight grille underline its character as a true off-road.
Finally, the unmistakable Scrambler® Icon in 2021 will also arrive in dealers in the “Ducati Red”coloring, which goes alongside the classic “62 Yellow” with black frame and black saddle.
For the MY21, all the bikes of the Scrambler® brand also comply with the EURO 5 standard that regulates emissions of pollutants, in addition the 800 range of the “Land of Joy” is available in a depowered version compatible with A2 licences.
XDiavel Dark is already available from Ducati dealers. XDiavel Black Star and Scrambler® Desert Sled will be from late November while Scrambler® Nighshift from December. Finally, the Scrambler® Icon in “Ducati Red” will be in dealers from the end of January.
