This includes a special paint theme created by Californian designer Roland Sands. Its colors symbolize the West Coast style of the 1970s. The bike also gets styling updates over the standard version, which gives the Mach 2.0 a different look. However, the new Ducati Scrambler Mach 2.0 has same mechanical components as the other Scrambler trims. So, it remains mechanically unchanged from its other siblings.

It is a contemporary bike that gives the rider pure riding pleasure with the practicality of a modern bike. The Scrambler Mach 2.0 is a very special motorcycle that is a result of our collaboration with Roland and will provide a unique flavor to Scrambler buyers.”
