Entry-level Scrambling: The Ducati Scrambler Sixty2
The Scrambler Sixty2 is the smallest motorcycle in the 2021 Ducati line-up. In fact, it’s one of the smallest Ducati motorcycles to roll out of the Bologna factory in recent years. While it’s still an important part of the Scrambler line, the Sixty2 features a smaller displacement engine. It’s aimed for entry-level riders who want to have a taste of what an Italian-made motorcycle can be, without the intimidating displacement, and without the equally intimidating price tag.
Unlike other manufacturers that might be tempted to throw a small single into a Scrambler-esque chassis, Ducati has spared no expense with the Sixty2. Admirably, it still uses a Desmodromic L-twin engine but with a smaller displacement of 399cc instead of 803cc. The result is a pretty impressive power output of 41 horsepower and 25.5 lb-ft of torque. It might not have mind-blowing performance figures, but it’s plenty for entry-level riders or motorcyclists who spend most of their time in the city.
2021 didn’t bring anything new to the table for this small Ducati. However, it was designed as a no-frills, basic model, so any outlandish additions would be somewhat unexpected. Though it’s thin on top-shelf technology, the Scrambler Sixty2 still has a few exciting features, such as aluminum 10-spoke wheels, a cool 2-into-1 exhaust, LED lights, LCD instrumentation, and Pirelli MT 60 RS tires.
For 2021, the Scrambler Sixty2 is available in a unique pop-inspired orange and black livery.
The 2021 Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 starts from $7,995 USD / $9,195 CAD.
