Ducati has unpacked the surprise finally – its the smallest Ducati available on the block, the Scrambler Sixty2! With a 399 cc L Twin Desmodromic engine, the Sixty2 not just expands the Scrambler family to an even wider audience but also brings back the glory days of the 80s when pop culture was on the rise in the West. While the 800 cc Scrambler is aimed at motorcyclists who see riding as a form of escapism, the Sixty2 is for younger buyers who want to have fun without compromising on affordability.
Just as the bigger Scrambler, the Sixty2 features a single 50 mm throttle body with two sub butterfly injectors. The Euro 4 ready engine has cast pistons with machined valve pockets while the crankshaft is made of a single piece. Designed to accentuate smooth running and fast acceleration throughout the rev range, the engine produces 40.9 PS of maximum power at 8,750 rpm and 34.3 Nm of peak torque at 7,750 rpm and is mated with a 6 speed transmission with a cable actuated clutch.
Scrambler Sixty2 is built on a twin spar trellis frame with 41 mm traditional stanchion forks by Showa upfront (no USD of the bigger Scramblers). The trademark tear-drop shaped 14 liter fuel tank continues duty. Braking duties are performed by 320 mm front disc and 245 mm disc at the rear.
A smaller capacity Scrambler will definitely open a wider market for Ducati especially in countries like India, Thailand and Indonesia as well as European countries with license restrictions.
Scrambler Sixty2 Colors
Ducati is making the 400cc Scrambler Sixty2 available in three color options…

Ducati is promoting the Scrambler brand separately and they intend to bring in a lot of volumes. In fact, Scrambler series is what is keeping them afloat with real good sales worldwide. A few variants of Scrambler (800cc) are also sold in India and we are pretty confident that this 400 cc Scrambler Sixty2 has all the chances of making it here..
