And of course, like the 848 Corse models before it, the 959 Corse arrives with a special racing colour scheme. Power figures remain unchanged for the Corse, and it continues to make 150hp at 10,500rpm and 102Nm of torque at 9,000rpm from its 955cc engine.
Scrambler Mach 2.0
The Mach 2.0 gets a new retro paint job on the fuel tank. Other cosmetic bits include a seat borrowed from the Scrambler Flat Track Pro, blackened exhaust cover and engine heads and brushed fins borrowed from the Scrambler Café Racer. The only functional change is a lower cross-section aluminium handlebar. Click here to read more.
