The Scrambler lineup gets two new models for 2016, the Flat Track Pro and the Sixty2.
The Sixty2 is the long-rumoured 400-class version of the Scrambler that the moto-press gossiped about all summer. It’s powered by an air-cooled, two-valve 399 cc L-twin, making 41 hp at 8,750 rpm and 25.3 ft-lb of torque at 7,750 rpm. Service intervals are 12,000 km. It has a 72 mm bore and 49 mm stroke, and Desmo valves.
The frame is Ducati standard steel trellis, with 24° of rake and 112 mm of trail. Wheelbase is 1,460 mm. Suspension comes from 41 mm Showa forks up front, and a Kayaba shock in back (adjustable for preload only). The front wheel is an 18-incher, the rear wheel a 17-incher, with Pirelli MT60 tires.
Braking comes from Bosch, with two-channel ABS. There’s a single 320 mm disc up front, with floating two-piston caliper. The rear brake has a 245 mm disc.
Ducati says the Sixty2 is built to appeal to younger riders looking for fun, the BMX and skateboard crowd. We don’t know Canadian pricing or availability yet, though.
The Scrambler Flat Track Pro, Ducati’s other addition to the Scrambler lineup, is based on the same platform as the other 800s. It’s essentially a Scrambler Full Throttle with a Termignoni exhaust and some cosmetic changes (piping on the alloy wheels, special handgrips, plenty of billet parts, a nose fairing, etc).
