Ducati Scrambler at Wheels and Waves with two new entries
Posted: Friday June 16, 2017
Ducati Scrambler and its Land of Joy have landed at Wheels and Waves for a world-first presentation of two new entries. This renowned French event, being held from 14 to 18 June in Biarritz, was selected as the perfect platform on which to unveil the new Ducati Scrambler Mach 2.0 and the latest Full Throttle graphics.
Sleek, with low-slung tapered aluminium handlebars, the Mach 2.0 also features a dedicated Flat Track Pro seat, black exhaust and cylinder head covers, plus Café Racer-style brushed cooling fins.
Its fresh graphics, created by renowned Californian designer Roland Sands, take their cue from the Bell Cross Idol helmet (Ducati Scrambler 2017 apparel collection) and feature colours that evoke the typical West Coast style of the ’70s.
Inspiration for the name of this latest Scrambler version comes from a bike that made Ducati - and motorcycling - history in the ’60s. Back in 1965, in fact, the Mach 1 250 was launched: a classic of its day that mounted the same engine as the Scrambler 250 of the time. Needless to say, the choice of name stems from its association with speed and movement: 'Mach', in fact, is the unit of measure for supersonic speeds.
The Mach 2.0 can be seen in a teaser video below in which the protagonist is a scale model, and the unveil is now live on Radio Scrambler.
The Full Throttle version has eye-catching new graphics; the sporty model in the Ducati Scrambler range, it features a new, “Shining Black” tank and front mudguard, plus a new side panel with a distinctive black chequerboard pattern on a yellow stripe.
