Ducati Scrambler Sixty2 – £6500

If the Ducati Scrambler’s retro styling has made you fall in love with bikes, but you’re not quite ready to go for the full-fat, 803cc version – fear not. From 2016 Ducati is offering a 399cc version with a less intimidating 41HP, which is compliant with A2 licence rules.

It still has the same air-cooled, L-Twin character of the bigger bike though, just with a lower power output. The only problem with the Sixty2 is its price – at £6500 it’s one of the more expensive models in our list and it’s not all that much cheaper than the full-power Scrambler.
