Recall of 228 Ducati Scrambler Nightshift units

Ducati has recalled around 228 units of its Scrambler Nightshift in the United States due to an issue with the turn signals.

The turn signals on the bicycle do not provide “effective projected bright lens surface requirements” as required by federal motor vehicle safety standards.

Company dealers will rectify faulty turn signals free of charge for all affected customers.

The two-wheeler has an empty weight of 180 kg.

The motorcycle works with a 73 hp and 803 cc engine

The Ducati Scrambler Nightshift gets its power from an 803cc double-valve L-twin engine that produces 73hp of maximum power at 8,250rpm and 66.2Nm of torque at 5,750rpm. The transmission tasks on the vehicle are handled by a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Disc brakes on both wheels ensure rider safety

To ensure the safety of the rider, the Ducati Scrambler Nightshift is equipped with disc brakes on the front and rear wheels, as well as Bosch cornering ABS for better handling on the road.

Suspension functions on the bike are taken care of by inverted 41mm forks up front and a Kayaba adjustable preload monoshock unit at the rear.

In India, the Ducati Scrambler Nightshift was launched in March and carries a price of Rs. 9.80 lakh (ex-showroom). Although the current recall is taking place in the United States, it is not known whether units sold in India are affected by the turn signal issue.
