Ducati Scrambler 400 Wheelie Capability

Anyone with a Scrambler 400 have any experience with wheelies on a Scrambler 400? Does it have enough power to do power wheelies? Of course, the Scrambler 800 is more than sufficient, but what about the 400.

The question is not if the bike can do a Wheelie, its if the Rider can do a Wheelie.

Karlo: but did those 125/150cc bikes do power or clutch wheelies? And did the rider have to hang his ass off of the back?

I think most posters overlooked the word "power". As for answering the original posters question: no idea, sorry. But I'd expect it to not be exactly as easy as a twist of the wrist.

Im certain you can do clutch wheelies on the 400cc, but not powerwheelies.

Tbh I can't do powerwheelies on the 800 either, thought I haven't tried too much, but think if I shift my weight more backwards I reckon it might go in first gear.

if you goose it enough and have the right physics at play, you might get the front wheel pretty light, but I'm not sure if it would stand up to the level dank whoolies without a fair amount of clutch play.

What the **** are "the level dank whoolies"??!
Is this "Australian" for something we in the north are unaware of?
