Riding high on the success of the 2015 Ducati Scrambler, Ducati has just unveiled its next platform in the range, the Scrambler Sixty2 at the 2015 EICMA motor show. The new motorcycle takes inspiration from the street culture, skateboarding, pop culture and pop art. The name Sixty2 denotes the year 1962 when the original Scrambler was first introduced.
The new Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 features a brand new 400 cc, air-cooled, L-Twin engine that produces 42 bhp and is mated to a six speed transmission and comes with 2-channel ABS as standard. In the styling department, the new Scrambler Sixty2 is near identical to its larger 803 cc sibling, with slight variations such as lighter standard downtube forks and a steel swingarm. For brakes, the 10-spoke aluminium wheels wrapped in Pirelli MT60 are given a single 320 mm Brembo disc up front, and a single 245 mm disc at the rear.
The Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 will be available in three new colors – Atomic Tangerine, Ocean Grey and Shining Black and will be available around the first quarter of 2016 for a price of $7,995. With a price difference of about about $500 between this and the larger 803 cc Scrambler ($8495), do you think this latest launch from Ducati will be able to live up to the hype ? Let us know in the comments below.
