Priced at $7,995, the 2020 Scrambler Sixty2 is Ducati’s lowest-priced and smallest-displacement scrambler. Ducati claims this model is “inspired by the youth culture of skateboarding, surfing, and pop music,” and makes it attractive to millennials, Gen Zers, and, in general, younger or less-experienced riders with use of the approachable 399cc L-twin engine. That said, it packs premium features like the 10-spoke aluminum wheels wrapped in Pirelli MT 60 RS tires, 2-into-1 low-slung exhaust, 41mm Showa fork, Kayaba rear shock (with adjustable preload), ABS as standard, steel tank, and LED positioning light and taillight.
Although the price is on the lower end of the Ducati Scrambler spectrum, we still thought that, “Compared to most other sub-500cc motorcycles, the Sixty2, has a premium name and premium price tag that elevates it into a new niche. At $7,995, it’s just $1,000 less than the entry-level Icon 800 in the U.S.” But alongside that “This might be a 400cc motorcycle, but it shares most of the components with a premium bike.”

Competition for a smaller-displacement scrambler-esque machine includes Husqvarna’s Svartpilen and Vitpilen 401. Otherwise you can jump up in displacement (and price) to Triumph’s Street Scrambler or other Ducati Scrambler models.
