Ducati Scrambler and its Land of Joy have made their annual pilgrimage to Wheels and Waves in Biarritz to unveil two new Scrambler models.
Wheels and Waves runs from 14 to 18 June in Biarritz – and Ducati thought it was the perfect place to unveil the new Ducati Scrambler Mach 2.0 and the latest Full Throttle.
Building on the solid base of the Ducati Scambler, the Mach 2.0 features low-slung tapered aluminium handlebars, a dedicated Flat Track Pro seat, black exhaust and cylinder head covers, plus Café Racer-style brushed cooling fins. Its graphics have been designed by renowned Californian designer Roland Sands, taking inspiration the Bell Cross Idol helmet, evoking the typical West Coast style of the ’70s.
The Mach 2.0 harks back to the classic Ducati Mach 1 250 of the ‘60s – which mounted the same engine as the Scrambler 250 of the time. The choice of name stems from its association with speed and movement: ‘Mach’ is a unit of measure for supersonic speeds.
Here’s a short video of Roland Sands explaining the new Mach 2.0:
The Full Throttle version is the sporty model in the Ducati Scrambler range, featuring eye-catching new graphics, a new, “Shining Black” tank and front mudguard, plus a new side panel with a distinctive black chequerboard pattern on a yellow stripe.
Both bikes arrived at Biarritz after leaving Borgo Panigale on 12 June, travelling together with a Volkswagen California Ocean and a Volkswagen Amarok converted into a mobile radio station, which is broadcasting Radio Ducati Scrambler live throughout the duration of the event!
