Ducati Reveals New Look For Scramblers at Wheels and Waves

A new look for Ducati’s Scrambler at the hottest motorcycle event in Europe as the Italian motorcycle manufacturer debuts Roland Sands inspirations at Wheels and Waves.

As reported earlier this week, the incredibly popular French motorcycle event held in Biarritz is in full swing. Among the waves and bikes, Ducati Scrambler and its Land of Joy have landed at Wheels and Waves for a world-first presentation of two new entries, the new Scrambler Mach 2.0 and the latest Full Throttle graphics.

Sleek, with low-slung tapered aluminum handlebars, the Mach 2.0 also features a dedicated Flat Track Pro seat, black exhaust and cylinder head covers, plus Café Racer-style brushed cooling fins.

Its fresh graphics, created by renowned Californian designer Roland Sands, take their cue from the Bell Cross Idol helmet first seen in Ducati’s Scrambler 2017 apparel collection, and feature colors that evoke the typical West Coast style of the ’70s.

Inspiration for the name of this latest Scrambler version comes from a bike that made Ducati as well as motorcycle history in the ’60s. Back in 1965 the Mach 1 250 was launched, considered a classic of its day that mounted the same engine as the Scrambler 250 of the time.

The Full Throttle version has eye-catching new graphics; the sporty model in the Ducati Scrambler range, it features a new, “Shining Black” tank and front mudguard, plus a new side panel with a distinctive black checkerboard pattern on a yellow stripe.


Both bikes arrived at Biarritz after leaving Borgo Panigale on 12 June, travelling together with a Volkswagen California Ocean and a Volkswagen Amarok converted into a mobile radio station broadcasting Radio Ducati Scrambler live! Once the Amarok arrived at Wheels and Waves it became the event's official radio station.

The live Wheels and Waves broadcasts four times a day through June 14th.
