Ducati has added a fifth motorcycle to their extremely successful Scrambler series. The newest addition to the family is the Scrambler Café Racer which has been designed as a throw back to the original Cafe racers of the past. Interestingly aside from cosmetic touches the Scrambler Café Racer also gets a few things to improve acceleration and handling, just like you would have on an original cafe’ racer from the 60’s. Although for these mods, the Cafe’ Racer does cost significantly more than the rest of the Scrambler Ducati family retailing at Rs. 9,32,000 (Ex-showroom, India).The Cafe Racer, however, does share it’s 803cc heart with the rest of its siblings and makes 73 hp at 8,250 rpm in terms of power and of 67 Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm. The Scrambler Café Racer also gets clip-on handlebars, a removable passenger seat cover and radial front mounted brake pump with cast aluminium 17” wheels with Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres (120/70 ZR 17 at the front and 180/55 ZR17 at the rear) and a Termignoni exhaust with dual tailpipes. The Ducati Scrambler Café Racer also gets Brembo braking system featuring Bosch 9.1 MP ABS with a pressure sensor.
“This motorcycle is a modern interpretation of the legendary Café Racer scene from the 1960s that triggered a motorcycling revolution. It represents the expression of free spirit and is an icon of style for enthusiasts. We’re very confident that with the Ducati Scrambler Café Racer, we will successfully bring the global cultural phenomenon to India as well.” Sergi Canovas Garriga, Managing Director of Ducati India at the launch.
The Scrambler Café Race also comes with it on its own line of accessories and apparel, because somehow that’s also a major part of the way that Ducati market the Scrambler. However, the only colour it is available in is Black Coffee colour with black frame and gold wheels, and it will be available country wide starting today.
