New Pop Icon
The new Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 doesn’t just extend the range on offer from the new Ducati brand. It opens the way for a new two-wheel segment that meets the requirements of those seeking an accessible bike that is easy to handle and has low running costs but not wanting to miss out on the unique Scrambler spirit: fun and sharing of positive emotion.
Sixty2 is a Scrambler inspired by youth street culture, skateboards, street food, pop music and, above all, the pop art that, back in 1962 (the year the very first Ducati Scrambler was launched), was taking the United States by storm. That’s why the Sixty2, the most “popular” Scrambler ever, is already a “pop icon”.
With the Sixty2, the highly expressive Ducati Scrambler design takes on a fresh look thanks to a slim steel tank with dedicated graphics and logos. This makes the Sixty2 immediately recognisable, as do its three exclusive colours: Atomic Tangerine, Ocean Grey and Shining Black.
Anti-conformist, affordable and essential, the Sixty2 once again provides that perfect Ducati Scrambler mix of tradition and modernity, a mix now closer than ever to the essence of motorcycling: two wheels, wide handlebars, a simple engine and tons of fun.
User-friendly and even more affordable – without compromising on Ducati style or quality – the Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 is a contemporary bike featuring genuine, top- class materials such as the steel on the new swingarm, the same material used to make the new teardrop tank and the frame. This quality metal has been combined with latest- generation components such as the front and rear LED lights and LCD instruments.
Wide handlebars and a long seat ensure a comfortable, relaxed riding position. The low barycentre and a new 160/60 x 17″ rear tyre with a slightly chunky surface pattern ensure great handling and pure fun whatever the situation, not to mention confident braking thanks to the as-standard ABS.
Moreover, a vast range of bike and apparel accessories means that the Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 offers a near-unlimited range of possibilities in terms of both personalisation and exclusive ‘lifestyling’.

Old school is the new school
The 80s-style logo draws its inspiration from motocross and BMX old school culture – the source of the stars icon.
These same stars would go on to become an icon of style, performance and, later, the emblem of the best old school BMX riders. This logo features 4 stars to represent the 400 cc engine.
Not just a style-based choice, then, but one closely connected with the bike’s identity: The Ducati Scrambler, in fact, mixes heritage and innovation, motorcycling and lifestyle.
So while the Ducati Scrambler 800 is aimed at motorcyclists that see riding as a form of escapism, the Sixty2 has been built to appeal to younger riders and their yearning for fun. The Sixty2, dedicated to the year in which the first Ducati Scrambler appeared, draws on youths who, eager to emulate their motorcycling heroes, modified their 20″ bicycles to create an all-new bike and an entirely crossover sport.
