Ducati has introduced the sixth member of the Scrambler range in India.
Ducati has launched the Scrambler Mach 2.0 in India at Rs. 8.52 lakh (ex-showroom, pan-India).
The Scrambler Mach 2.0 features a paint scheme created by Californian designer Roland Sands with colours that evoke the typical West Coast style of the 1970s. 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.
Also new on this version are the low-slung tapered aluminium handlebars. Additionally, the Mach 2.0 boasts a dedicated Flat Track Pro seat, black exhaust and cylinder head covers, plus café racer-style brushed cooling fins.
Powering the Mach 2.0 is a familiar 803cc, twin-cylinder Desmodue engine that is shared with rest of the Scrambler family. It makes 72bhp of power and 62Nm of torque. A 6-speed gearbox comes standard.
On the launch, Sergi Canovas Garriga, Managing Director of Ducati India said, “The Ducati Scramblers are the perfect starting point for motorcyclists. It is a contemporary bike that gives the rider pure riding pleasure with the practicality of a modern bike. The Scrambler Mach 2.0 is a very special motorcycle that is a result of our collaboration with Roland and will provide a unique flavour to Scrambler buyers”.
The year 2017 has been an exciting one for Ducati Scrambler fans, as the Italian company has rapidly expanded its Scrambler lineup in the last six months or so. In addition to launching the BSIV-spec versions of the Scrambler Classic, Icon and Full Throttle - Ducati as also launched the off-road focused Desert Sled and the retro Cafe Racer versions recently. The Mach 2.0 serves as the sixth Scrambler model in India - thus assuring that the entry-level Ducati range caters to a wider audience.
Very recently, Ducati showcased a more powerful Scrambler, the Scrambler 1100, to the world. Expect that to arrive in India during the first half of 2018.
