Ducati continues to grow its most-popular Scrambler family with the Mach 2.0 which the Italian company commissioned from LA custom house Roland Sands Design.

The Mach 2.0 was unveiled at the Wheels and Waves festival in Biarritz in June and is named after the 1965 Ducati Mach 1 250.

Ducati Australia has confirmed it will arrives here in September 2017 at $15,490 ($18,490NZ) plus on-road costs.

It’s basically an Icon model with 1970s-inspired yellow and brown paintwork based off the Bell Ducati Scrambler Cross Idol Helmet.

It also has tapered aluminium MX bars, the seat from the Flat Track Pro, a black exhaust and engine cooling fins in brushed aluminium.

Not a vast departure from the other models, at all! But it now brings the family variants so far to nine with the 803cc Icon, Full Throttle, Urban Enduro, Classic, Cafe Racer, Desert Sled, Flat Track Pro and the 400cc Sixty2.

It should also be noted that the Urban Enduro and Flat Track Pro models have now disappeared from official Ducati websites, so the Mach 2.0 actually replaces them.

Roland Sands Designs has worked on Ducatis before, in particular, an XDiavel it unveiled at the 76th Sturgis Rally last year.

But while they have worked with a number of other manufacturers, notably BMW, Indian and Victory, this is the first time Ducati has officially commissioned RSD for a production model.

Ducati also used the Wheels and Waves event to reveal subtly different paintwork on its Scrambler Full Throttle.

It now comes in gloss black rather than matte black with a yellow chequered tank stripe instead of a solid yellow stripe.
