Hello Guys,
I am new to this forum. I was thinking about purchasing a Ducati Scrambler Sixty2.
So my background is that I am from India and I'm 25 years old.
I don't consider myself as novice rider but I have some experience with bikes up to 200cc.
I am thinking of upgrading to a Ducati scrambler 62 (which is 399cc I guess). One of my friend owns this bike and I've seen it and I liked it very much and needed some opinions on what are the things that I need to remember and any downsides on purchasing this one?
I commute mostly in cities not on dirt or anything like that...

Thank you.

I just picked up a Sixty2 today and had a nice 60 miles ride back home with mixed highway & NYC traffic riding.

Pros
- Easy to handle in NYC congestion traffic
- Clutch super easy to get used too
- Just enough hop at from start
- Comfortable riding position for 1.5hrs

Cons (not really a cons)
- Miss my Monster 796 due to limited HP and max speed
- Anything over 80mph will be pushing it. There were a few times where the headwind was strong and it made it a little difficult to pass a semi.

This is mainly used as a "gym bike" and "nyc commuter". So, it'll be an 85% traffic bike.
