Ducati India confirmed on their Twitter handle that the Scrambler Mach 2.0 will be launched in India soon. As the Indian market is important for the iconic Italian motorcycle maker, they are looking to expand the Scrambler line up, which at the moment includes Icon, Desert Sled, Classic and Full Throttle, by adding the Mach 2.0 in the next couple of months.
The Scrambler Mach 2.0 was showcased at the Wheels and Waves event in Biarritz, France, in June. This retro looking Scrambler is designed in association with Roland Sand Designs, a U.S. based custom house that specialises in Ducati. The eye-catching colours are inspired from the Bell Cross Idol helmet, which was featured in the 2017 Ducati Scrambler apparel collection. According to Ducati, these colours evoke the world and ambience typical of the West Coast of the 1970s. Roland Sand Designs have not shied away from putting their logo ‘RSD’ all over the bike. The name Mach 2.0 is an ode to the Mach 1 250 in the 1960s, which was equipped with the same Scrambler 250 engine.
So apart from the new vibrant colours, what else does Mach 2.0 boast of? Well, it comes with a low-slung cross-section aluminium handlebar and a Flat Track Pro seat. On the other hand, the engine overhead cover, exhaust cover and the cooling fins are all coloured in black.
The Mach 2.0, like its other Scrambler siblings, is powered by a 72bhp 803cc air-cooled engine which boasts of 67Nm of torque.
Along with the Mach 2.0, Ducati had also showcased an updated version of the Scrambler Full Throttle earlier in June in France, which gets new graphics in the form of chequered pattern and yellow stripe on the black tank and front mudguard.
