Ducati Scrambler Shocking Is a Pink Bike That Ladies Might Just Love to Ride

We know that "ladies love pink" sound slike a cliche, but looking at Ducati's latest special edition machine, we dare say that riding ladies will like it. Borgo Panigale baptized this bike the Scrambler Shocking and yes, it looks striking for a Ducati, to say the least.

Scrambler Shocking is based on a Sixty2 bike, the second Scrambler Ducati released in the new era that dawned for this family. The Scrambler Sixty2 aims at becoming the new "pop icon" of the new generations of riders, combining the affordable price, Ducati's motorcycle making heritage and the immense popularity of the bigger Scrambler.

The Scrambler machines represent the entry point in the Ducati universe, and the initial model quickly rose to becoming the best-selling bike in Italy.

Scrambler Sixty2, on the other hand, is powered by a 399cc l-twin desmodromic engine that produces 41 hp, and this makes it suitable for the owners of an A2 driving permit. Also, the lighter build is more lady-friendly, just like the tamer character of the bike, so seeing Ducati choosing the "shocking pink" color might be an indicator as to the maker's marketing intentions towards the female demographic

It's not clear yet if the Scrambler Shocking is a one-off machine created solely for the Notte Rosa 2016 Adriatic festival which coincides with the opening of the ninth edition of the World Ducati Week, or if this color will also be offered as an option in dealerships.

Ducati, however, adds that admission to the "Pink Night" festival is free for the ladies, while men will have to pay a ticket. Also, the customers who bought their World Ducati Week 2016 passes will be admitted for free.

If you ask us, Ducati could indeed consider adding more color options to their bikes, at least when it comes to the highly popular Scrambler.
