For the new year, Ducati has unleashed a new scaled down version of the Scrambler. Dubbed the Sixty2, the motorcycle is a nod to 1962 when the first Scrambler 250 was introduced. The company continued to produce single-cylinder Scramblers until the mid-70s, but has since abandoned small capacity engines — until now, that is.
The Sixty2 Scrambler features a V2 engine, reaching a 399 cc capacity, and is capable of cranking out 41 horsepower and 25.3 pound-per-feet of torque. In turn, the Sixty2 weighs just 404 pounds.
The new, smaller Scrambler then notes a set of Showa 41 mm forks that are paired with a Kayaba single shock, while the swing arm looks identical to that of the larger Scrambler. Light alloy 10-spoke wheels also set the Sixty2 apart from the bigger model to round out the new look.
While the Sixty2 Scrambler ($7,990 USD) is smaller and lighter, it is not, however, that much cheaper than the 803 cc Scrambler, which starts at $8,495 USD.
