“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

India bound Ducati Scrambler Sixty2


Ducati has unveiled its smallest model at the 2015 EICMA show - the new Ducati Scrambler Sixty2. The Scrambler Sixty2 takes its name from 1962, the year the original Ducati Scrambler was first launched.

The Sixty2 though, is completely modern with ABS, front and rear LED lights and Ducati's desmodromic valve system in its 399cc L-twin engine.

Based on the current Ducati Scrambler's design unveiled last year, the Scrambler Sixty2 has been targeted at emerging markets. In India, the Scrambler Sixty2 will be targeted at riders looking to upgrade to a not too large twin-cylinder motorcycle with the appeal of the Ducati brand.

The Scrambler Sixty2 has the same basic Scrambler steel trellis frame, with the engine also derived directly from the current 803cc Scrambler.

But the Sixty2's L-twin engine is almost half in displacement, making 41PS of power at 8750rpm and 34.3Nm of torque at 7750rpm. Its larger sibling - the 803cc Ducati Scrambler - makes 75PS of power and 67.7Nm of torque.


Other changes on the Sixty2 include the front fork, which is a traditional set-up compared to the inverted fork on the current Ducati Scrambler. The rear swing-arm too, has been switched from the cast aluminum to a steel one on the Sixty2.

Braking system on the Sixty2 consists of two piston floating calipers squeezing a single 320mm rotor. The bigger Ducati Scrambler uses radial-mount four-piston calipers on a 330mm front disc. The rear disc on the Sixty2 is the same 245mm disc as on the current 803cc Scrambler.

The Ducati Scrambler currently sells starting at Rs 6.78 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The Scrambler Sixty2's price in India is likely to be about Rs 4.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) once it is launched in India early next year.
