The reveals of the 2021 Ducati range continue with the second episode of the Ducati World Première web series, revealing new XDiavel variants and Ducati Scrambler updates. Here is the release from Ducati Australia & New Zealand, along with both video episodes…
For 2021 Ducati renews the XDiavel range by introducing two new versions: Dark and XDiavel Black Star. In addition, all XDiavel models become Euro 5, gaining 8hp and 0.2kgm in maximum power and torque values, with a smoother delivery curve.
Ducati state that the XDiavel Dark enhances the beauty of the Ducati cruiser shapes thanks to the essentiality of the matt black colour. 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, according to Ducati.
The new XDiavel Black Star version, on the other hand, shows enthusiasts the sporty side of the Ducati cruiser, with a livery and equipment inspired by the world of sports cars. The dedicated livery alternates matt grey and black with inevitable touches of red.
The colour cuts are clear and intersect, taking up the concept of the X that characterizes the family. On this bike, no detail has been overlooked: the red engine head covers are a reminder of the 100 per cent Ducati soul, while the seat, enriched with a high-grip suede fabric, recalls the sportiness of the brand.
After having already previewed the Ducati Scrambler 1100 Dark PRO, the entry-level model to the 1100 range, proposed in “Dark Stealth” colour with round mirrors and natural brushed aluminium finishes, the Ducati Scrambler brand now also 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 brand- new colour scheme for the Ducati Scrambler Icon.
The Ducati Scrambler Nightshift is, say Ducati, an essential bike with a bold character, inspired by the metropolitan world. This model, with classic lines and dark colours that evoke the atmosphere of the night, is characterised 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 seat, 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 and 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” colour, which goes alongside the classic “62 Yellow” with black frame and black seat.
