Ducati Scrambler Café Racer – An expression of free spirit
The Ducati Scrambler Café Racer has been given a new soul all of it's own. It is impossible to look at this bike without imagining it on the streets of London back in the sixties. The clever choice of livery, anodised black spoked rims rims and the overall low long look of the bike revives this "hooligan boys from the Rocker movement" cult of the sixties perfectly.
The Ducati Scrambler Café Racer is powered by the air and oil-cooled twin-cylinder Desmodue engine taken from the Icon, EURO 4-compliant and with black-trimmed covers and machined cooling fins.
The stunning silver and blue tear drop tank is the same used on other Scrambler models with interchangeable side pods so the owner can further personalise the motorcycle. The Café Race has a bespoke seat and tail unit with removable pillion seat cover, drop handlebars and bar end mirrors to enhance the 60's style.
To contrast the blue of the frame and the silver bodywork the 17'' front and rear spoked wheels are anodised black. Having a 17'' front wheel opposed to 18 as fitted to other Scrambler models further enhances handling and racing style. Fitted with the latest Pirelli Diablo Rosso 3 tyres to make sure you never run out of grip.
Thie Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer hasn't just been styled to look fast, along with the upgraded 17'' front wheel and tyres Ducati have made sure the Café Racer stops as well as it goes by fitting a redial front brake pump made by Brembo mated to a monobloc M4 brake calliper. New dual channel Bosch cornering ABS is standard on the Scrambler Café Racer.
Side number boards further enhance the original café racer style, as do the twin exit Termignoni exhaust with a deep subtle tone turning into a thunderous roar as the revs climb.
This particular model now comes as standard with LED indicators and a hrdraulic clutch.

The Ducati Scrambler Café Racer mounts the EURO 4-compliant, twin-cylinder 803 cc air and oil-cooled engine taken from the Icon. Together with the new homologation comes a new throttle control and an up-to-the-minute engine calibration that has made power delivery even smoother, especially at the bottom end of the rev range. Another distinguishing Ducati Scrambler Café Racer feature is the black engine, which contrasts strikingly with the brushed finish on the cylinder head cooling fins.
Equipped with a 6-speed gearbox, the twin-cylinder Desmodue engine on the Scrambler has been designed to favour smooth running and fluid acceleration throughout the rev range, delivering 75 hp at 8,250 rpm and a torque of 68 Nm at 5,750 rpm. Designed to be simple and accessible, just like the Scrambler itself, it features 12,000 km (7,500 mile) maintenance intervals.
Safe, High Performance Braking
The Ducati Scrambler Café Racer mounts a Brembo braking system featuring cornering ABS system with a pressure sensor. To combine maximum stopping performance with minimalist styling the front wheel has a single 330 mm disc (a good 5 mm thick) with a 4-piston Brembo M 4.32B monobloc caliper with radial attachment. The Ducati Scrambler Café Racer also features a radial-type front brake pump. This decision to mount a powerful single-disc front braking system was taken to leave a clear view on the right side of the wheel. At the rear, instead, a 245 mm disc is gripped by a caliper with a 32 mm piston.
125 GP Desmo Inspired Graphics
The novel lateral number holders on the Ducati Scrambler Café Racer carry the number 54 that once belonged to Bruno Spaggiari. A highly successful Ducati rider, in 1968 Spaggiari raced in the Mototemporada Romagnola, a classic road event of the time, on a Ducati with an engine derived from the Scrambler's single-cylinder 350 cc power unit. The photo of his jump at the Cesenatico GP is iconic. Rippled by the roots of the pine trees, the uneven city centre asphalt created true "jumps" that tested the riders' skills to the limit and ultimately determined who would win one crossroads after the other. The free spirit of those days – the same evoked by the Land of Joy – inspired the Ducati Scrambler Café Racer designers, who wanted to pay homage to the legendary rider from Reggio Emilia.
