    Like the article says, reasons "not" to buy it.

    I could like a lightweight 400 cc bike, but not a high dollar one, with expensive service and parts.

    MSRP of $8k, by the time the dealer gets through, it will be closer to $10k.

    Some of the 800cc version at the Daytona dealer:

    400 pounds.

    400 pounds.

    That's KLR 650 territory. I'm gonna say go ahead and say no thanks, boss.

    This thing is like the Indian Scout Sixty. A shittier version of something that is already meh at best.

    Yea, I have to agree with the overall premise of the article: If the 400 were a little smaller and about 50 pounds lighter, it might be a contender. For 7 pounds difference, there's absolutely no valid reason to buy it over the 800, IMO. If you're a beginner, you should be getting a different bike altogether, anyway; if you're an experienced rider, there's no reason for the 400. These kinds of projects are a bit stupid, really, lol: manufacturer X produces small displacement motorcycle that no one wants, said small displacement motorcycle doesn't sell well, manufacturer X scraps the project and decides that there's no market for small displacement motorcycles...haha.

    Reasons to buy the Ducati Scrambler sixty2:

    1. You want to buy a new bike but are scared of large cc numbers
    2. You want to buy something new because you think everything used must have problems or why would they be getting rid of it?
    3. You have more money than sense
    4. You don't know the Duke 390 exists

    i like the looks of their big cc scrambler versions but not the colors but the icon does come in red...smaller engine than my bonneville but better "claimed" hp numbers and lower weight...seems like a win to me...that 400cc version is dumb though

    Keep posting them LT.

    After all, this is a motorcycle forum.
