The Scrambler Café Racer is the latest addition to Ducati’s Scrambler range of air-cooled retro motorcycles. The top-of-the-line variant in the family, the Scrambler Café Racer, is a direct rival to Triumph’s modern classic – the Bonneville T100. Here is a photo gallery of the Ducati Scrambler Café Racer –
The Scrambler Café Racer harks back to the racing motorcycles of the 1960s, and is targeted at classic motorcycle enthusiasts.
Bits like the short fly screen, clip-on handlebars, competition number plate and a cafe racer seat with a removable cowl for the rear seat boost its retro appeal.
The rear of the Scrambler Café Racer gets a clean and minimalistic profile with the LED tail lamp assembly adding a little bling.
The round chrome-rimmed instrument console gets an old-school look, although the digital display in it adds a modern touch.
Updates are more than just visual. The rake angle has been increased and the trail has been reduced. It also gets an aggressive riding position.
The front suspension has been updated with fully-adjustable 41mm inverted front forks. The rear gets a preload-adjustable monoshock.
Braking hardware has also been upgraded with 330mm semi-floating setup up front and radial Brembo M4-32 callipers. ABS is offered as standard.
At the heart of the Scrambler Café Racer is an 803cc L-twin engine, delivering 74bhp and 68Nm of torque through a six-speed transmission.
The Café Racer gets a Termignoni exhaust system as standard. Besides providing a better sound track, it also complements the appearance of the bike.
