Ducati continues to grow its most-popular Scrambler family with the Mach 2.0 which the Italian company commissioned from LA custom house Roland Sands Design.
The Mach 2.0 has been unveiled at the Wheels and Waves festival in Biarritz and is named after the 1965 Ducati Mach 1 250.
It’s basically an Icon model with 1970s-inspired yellow and brown paintwork based off the Bell Ducati Scrambler Cross Idol Helmet.
It also has tapered aluminium MX bars, the seat from the Flat Track Pro, a black exhaust and engine cooling fins in brushed aluminium.
Not a vast departure from the other models, at all! But it now brings the family line-up to eight with the 803cc Icon, Full Throttle, Urban Enduro, Classic, Cafe Racer, Desert Sled and the 400cc Sixty2.
Interestingly there is no official confirmation that the Mach 2.0 is a production model. There is nothing on the official Ducati website, nor a media release, nor pricing, nor scheduled delivery dates.
Ducati Australia has also failed to confirm the new model.
It should also be noted that the Urban Enduro model has disappeared from official Ducati websites, so maybe the Mach 2.0 replaced that model.
Roland Sands Designs has worked on Ducatis before, in particular an XDiavel it unveiled at the 76th Sturgis Rally last year.
But while they have worked with a number of other manufacturers, notably BMW, Indian and Victory, this is believed to be the first time Ducati has officially commissioned RSD.
Ducati also used the Wheels and Waves event to reveal subtly different paintwork on its Scrambler Full Throttle.
It now comes in gloss black rather than matte black with a yellow chequered tank stripe instead of a solid yellow stripe.
