Ducati Scrambler Sixty2, Opinion?

Ducati just released info today on the new 399cc Scrambler Sixty2. Since it fits in a similar displacement category as our Dukes I was curious what everyone reaction is. 41Hp, 403lbs wet, not certain but hearing pricing will be (8K) only $500 less than the 800cc Icon ($8,500). Full specs here Ducati Scrambler Below is Ducati's explanation of the bike.

"Scrambler Sixty2, a bike designed to target the entry-level market (even though Ducati avoids the words entry-level like serious sickness). Ducati claims the Sixty2 has been inspired by California street culture- skateboards, food, music and art.

Giving the Sixty2 it's own unique look are three new paints: Atomic Tangerine, Ocean Grey and Shining Black; which work in conjunction with the slimmer steel tank and new graphics to make the Sixty2 instantly recognizable (so says Ducati).

Notably the Sixty2 will offer ABS standard.

“Atomic Tangerine” with black frame and black seat

So what do you think?

I just like it!

Quite a bit more expensive than the Duke, but it tickles me

We like it a lot, but feel like it's a different demographic based on styling alone. The new BMW 310 on the other hand is a direct competion. My guess are these are all great bikes.

A little pricey, for $500 more I'd choose the Icon.

But I'm glad that the options are increasing for small displacement bikes.

Or.....Maybe the new Husqvarnas that are supposed to come out at some point next year..? They are supposed to be using KTM 390 engines in them. https://www.classicdriver.com/en/art...air-husqvarnas

Prices above are USD, waaay overpriced for what it is. Definitely aimed at countries where going above 400cc is very expensive.

Very much not for me. For a city commuter bike with an open face lid and a hipster beard... yeah... but generally... pointless.

This. So much this. Hipsters all around the world (that don't have $500 to jump for the Icon) rejoice!
