Finding an entry level motorcycle for beginners that strikes the perfect balance between having good specs and a good price can be tough to do. Now, Ducati is entering into the budget motorcycle market with the new 2016 Ducati Scrambler Sixty2.
The new bike comes in at 41 horsepower with a two-cylinder, air cooled 399 cc motor that pushes 25 foot-pounds of torque. Those specs might not be that impressive at first glance, but the new Ducati is priced $500 less than its cousin. How did the motorcycle maker trim the fat? They designed the bike with a right side up 41 mm Showa fork and a tank with a dedicated logo. The bike is only slightly lighter than the normal Scrambler, coming in at 403 pounds. The front brake also sees a slight reduction, shifting from a 330 mm disc to a 320 mm one, and it has a two-piston caliper instead of the standard four. It’s available now for $7,995.
