Ducati’s world launch has just happened with TWO versions of the Scrambler, a smaller 400cc option called the Sixty2 with more of a retro-feel and a tweaked version of the current bigger bike with some flat-tracker style touches. But that’s not all because more variants on the retro-styled have been promised for the near future, with one being launched later this year.
The Sixty2 will sell for £6,450 and the flat-tracker £8,995.
Ducati boss Claudio Domenicali kicked off the presentation of the 2016 models by saying: “There will be more Scramblers in the future, we will expand the Scrambler brand up, down and side-by-side.”
The new bike is an A2 licence compliant 399cc, air-cooled V-twin that kicks out 41bhp, 25.3ft-lb of torque and has a bore and stroke of 72mm x 49mm. It weighs 167kg dry (183kg wet), 14 litre fuel tank (ed) retro-styled bike with 41mm Showa front forks.
The bike will come in three colours; orange, silver/turqoise and black. The seat height is 770, 790 (standard height) or 810mm depending on what you want and the bike comes with ABS as standard.
Domenicali added: “We actually want to make the Scrambler more accessible.”
Alongside the 400 is the flat-tracker (pictured below) which is basically a dressed-up current Scrambler 800 with special livery, seat cover, side panel, machined component, handlebars and a Full Throttle exhaust which includes a Termignoni slip-on can.
