Ducati Scrambler Sixty2
The new Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 doesn't just extend the range on offer from the new Ducati brand. It opens the way for a new two-wheel segment that meets the requirements of those seeking an accessible bike that is easy to handle and has low running costs but not wanting to miss out on the unique Scrambler spirit: fun and sharing of positive emotion.Sixty2 is a Scrambler inspired by youth street culture, skateboards, street food, pop music and, above all, the pop art that, back in 1962 (the year the very first Ducati Scrambler was launched), was taking the United States by storm. That's why the Sixty2, the most "popular" Scrambler ever, is already a "pop icon".
With the Sixty2, the highly expressive Ducati Scrambler design takes on a fresh look thanks to a slim steel tank with dedicated graphics and logos. This makes the Sixty2 immediately recognisable, as do its three exclusive colours: Atomic Tangerine, Ocean Grey and Shining Black.
Anti-conformist, affordable and essential, the Sixty2 once again provides that perfect Ducati Scrambler mix of tradition and modernity, a mix now closer than ever to the essence of motorcycling: two wheels, wide handlebars, a simple engine and tons of fun.
Ducati Scrambler Sixty2
User-friendly and even more affordable - without compromising on Ducati style or quality - the Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 is a contemporary bike featuring genuine, top- class materials such as the steel on the new swingarm, the same material used to make the new teardrop tank and the frame. This quality metal has been combined with latest- generation components such as the front and rear LED lights and LCD instruments.
Wide handlebars and a long seat ensure a comfortable, relaxed riding position. The low barycentre and a new 160/60 x 17" rear tyre with a slightly chunky surface pattern ensure great handling and pure fun whatever the situation, not to mention confident braking thanks to the as-standard ABS.
Moreover, a vast range of bike and apparel accessories means that the Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 offers a near-unlimited range of possibilities in terms of both personalisation and exclusive 'lifestyling'.
The instrumentation on the Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 consists of a single, round assembly positioned above and to the right of the headlight. While completely digital, the scale on the rpm indicator resembles the speedometer on the bikes of the 70s (i.e. positioned in the lower part of the instrument assembly). As engine revs increase the digits light up clockwise (right to left). Ducati Scrambler instrumentation also features two trip odometers and one total-mileage odometer, a trip fuel indicator, an air temperature display, maintenance reminders, a clock, and fuel reserve and ABS warning lights. Riders can also count on an engine oil pressure warning light, full beam indicator, neutral indicator, turn signal indicators, immobilizer and over-rev warning light.
Ducati Scrambler styling is also evident on the controls. The wide handlebars house a classic, wire-connected, twist-grip throttle together with an axial-pump front brake lever. Minimalist Ducati Scrambler design continues with the cable-actuating clutch lever. The switchgear is characterised by the now-standard yet exclusive “trigger catch” that slides down to cover the starter button when the kill switch is activated. It’s the same one used on all Ducati bikes, its high-tech design underscoring the unique style of the Ducati Scrambler.
The black painted die cast aluminium footrest plates support the gear change lever and the off-road type rear brake lever.
An air-cooled 399 cm3 L-twin, two-valve engine powers the Ducati Scrambler Sixty2. Derived from the engine on the Scrambler Icon it has a 72 mm bore and a 49 mm stroke. The Desmodue engine on the Ducati Scrambler has light, machine-finished aluminium covers, including those on the clutch and alternator.
As on the larger-engined version, the L-twin on the Scrambler Sixty2 features a single 50 mm throttle body with two sub-butterfly injectors: this solution ensures fluid power delivery and accurate control of the fuel being aspirated into the cylinders.
The twin-cylinder Scrambler Sixty2 is Euro 4 type-approved and has cast pistons with machined valve pockets while the crankshafts are of the single-piece type. The 2-in-1 exhaust with aluminium-covered silencer has been specially designed for the Ducati Scrambler Sixty 2 with the pipes offering a 'low-slung' look.
The gearbox is a 6-speed unit while the cable-actuated clutch emphasises the minimalist nature of the Ducati Scrambler.
The twin-cylinder Desmodue engine on the Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 has been designed to favour smooth running and fluid acceleration throughout the rev range, delivering 41 hp at 8,750 rpm and a torque of 34.3 Nm at 7,750 rpm. Designed to be simple and accessible, just like the Scrambler itself, it also features competitive 12,000 km maintenance intervals (every 7,500 miles).
