The Ducati Scrambler 400 - 400cc Single-Cylinder Ducati


Ducati have already officially confirmed that the Ducati Scrambler will be joined by new models, but it now appears this will be a smaller-capacity version, not the larger version initially rumored.

Inside sources suggest the motorcycle is going to be a single-cylinder Ducati Scrambler, made in Thailand, in the style of the original 1962 machine. It's likely the firm has slashed a cylinder off the 803cc air-cooled engine in the current Ducati Scrambler to create a motorcycle of just under 400cc and around 40 horsepower.

This new Ducati single-cylinder engine would easily fall into the same category as the current, Yamaha MT-03, KTM Duke 390 and future BMW G310, but more importantly a sub-400cc single-cylinder motorcycle would massively increase the Italian brand's potential in developing markets.
Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali told reporters: “The Ducati Scrambler has been even more successful than we thought it would be and there will definitely be more Ducati Scrambler models later this year.”

Ducati's teaser campaign takes the form of a cartoon series set in 'a new Land of Joy' and features the story of 'skater Bart and beautiful Betty'. The motorcyce will be launched at the Milan, Italy Motorcycle Show later this month (November).Tag: Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 400 400cc Single-Cylinder 2016
