Ducati Scrambler 2G: Tyres & Wheels
Since its inception, the Ducati Scrambler has remained a supermoto motorcycle which is light, lean and nimble, which along with the powerful L-twin engine, make it a fun-to-ride motorcycle. To make it a versatile motorcycle which can handle both smooth and rough roads with equal finesse, Ducati chose to equip the Scrambler with Pirelli MT 60 RS tubeless radial dual-purpose tyres.
In this second-generation model of the Scrambler, Ducati has retained the 110/80 R17 front and 180/55 R17 rear tubeless radial tyres from the previous-gen model.
The Pirelli MT 60 RS tyres designed for Ducati Scrambler 2G have radial carcasses with zero-degree steel belts for their construction, which help them improve stability under hard braking and cornering abilities at higher speeds. The multi-radius road-oriented profile of the tyre enhances the overall handling of the Ducati Scrambler 2G, even during quick lean transitions.
