2023 Ducati Scrambler 800 Design
The Ducati Scrambler retains its design language with updated elements like the wheel design and new tank design for the Icon variant. The Icon variant gets the most customisations as the fender, the tags on wheels and the front headlight cover are all replaceable with an accessory kit available in nine colour options. The Full throttle variant is the sportiest of the trio and is inspired by the US flat track competitions on dirt ovals. The Nightshift variant on the other hand gets more cafe racer styling.
