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.
Here is our overview.
It houses an LCD dashboard
The Ducati Scrambler Nightshift sits on a tubular steel trellis frame and features a flat cafÃ©-racer-style saddle, chopped front fender, wide aluminum handlebars and rounded headlight.
It also sports a full LED lighting setup, LCD instrumentation system and spoked wheels wrapped in Pirelli MT60 tires.
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.
Ducati Scrambler Nightshift: Price
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.
