Ducati has launched its Scrambler Mach 2.0 in India at Rs 8.53 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The new variant of the Scrambler is inspired by the Mach 1 250, launched in 1965, internationally.
In terms of design, the Scrambler Mach 2.0 sports a paint scheme created by Roland Sands, a California-based designer. The colours are meant to evoke typical West Coast design from the 1970s.
Further differentiating it from its Scrambler siblings is the Mach 2.0’s low-slung tapered aluminium handlebars, a Flat Track Pro seat, black-finished exhaust and cylinder head covers – as well as café racer-style brushed cooling fins.
Mechanically, the Mach 2.0 shares the 803cc L-twin engine with its siblings. The engine produces 73hp at 8,250rpm and 67Nm at 5,570rpm. The six-speed gearbox is also common.
The Italian bike maker has confirmed that the Scrambler Mach 2.0 is available across all seven Ducati showrooms in India and bookings for the new bike have already commenced.
Including the new Scrambler Mach 2.0 variant, Ducati currently sells the Scrambler in a total of six trims – the Icon, Classic, Full Throttle, Desert Sled and Cafe Racer.
Ducati is also expected to bring the new Monster 821, Panigale V4, Multistrada 1260 and Scrambler 1100 to India in 2018.
