The 2022 Ducati Scrambler Nightshift Looks Like A Special One-Off

Another flavor of the Scrambler in the 2022 Ducati lineup comes in the form of the Scrambler Nightshift. It has a mix of urban and sporting appeal. The 2022 Ducati Scrambler Nightshift is a bobbed blacked-out model with cafe racer ergonomics. We’re all familiar with the basic Scrambler concept, so let’s look at what makes the Nightshift variation special.

The air- and oil-cooled 803cc desmodromic engine is black with brushed highlights, while the aluminum belt guards are machine-finished.

Rather than going with clip-ons, Ducati Motorcycles employed a wide handlebar that is derived from the 1100 Sport Pro. Ergonomics should be aggressive yet friendly. The bar-end mounted mirrors reinforce the cafe theme. It also means the rider can have a decent chance to see something other than their shoulder or elbows.

Should you go racing, the Italian Manufacturer equipped the Scrambler Nightshift with side number plates so you can easily find yourself on the track-sponsored photographer’s website.

For 2022, the Scrambler Nightshift is available in only one color option: Aviator Grey.

The 2022 Ducati Nightshift starts at MSRP: $11,495 USD / $12,995 CDN
