2018 Ducati Scrambler CAFE RACER Road Manual 6sp 800cc
803 cc. The Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer, Scramblers interpretation of the legendary bikes that created a revolution in the motorcycle world, is an expression of free spirit and an emblem of style. Its Black Coffee colour brings back the 60s to todays Land of Joy.
Just two years ago, when the new Ducati Scrambler brand was launched, nobody would have believed that today we would be here talking about a Scrambler Cafe Racer.
The Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer is the Scrambler interpretation of the legendary 60s bikes that triggered a motorcycling evolution
Free spirit and style: with its Black Coffee colour scheme, the Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer takes us from the 1960s all the way to todays Land of Joy.
Back in the day, in London, a bold, forward-thinking group of young motorcyclists, the TonUp Boys of the Rocker movement, began setting up their bikes to win the sprint from one cafe to the next (each race was supposed to last as long as a Juke Box single).
Since then, the Cafe Racer culture has gone on to become a global phenomenon.
The Ducati Scrambler world and Cafe Racer culture share a style that extends beyond the bike to encompass apparel and accessories.
The Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer thus broadens the scope of the Scrambler brand which, now, for the first time, offers a fresh take on what was one of motorcyclings most influential movements.
This version has 17 wheels with Pirelli DIABLO ROSSO II tyres (120/70 ZR 17 at the front and 180/55 ZR17 at the rear), a pivotal feature on this more-Scrambler-than-ever version that provides plenty of scope for personalisation.
The Ducati Scrambler Cafe 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 characteristic teardrop tank with interchangeable aluminium side panels is combined with a dedicated seat featuring a cover for the passenger section.
Rear-view mirrors mounted on the aluminium handlebar ends draw their inspiration from the 60s race look, while the radial front brake pump is a typically modern component able to ensure true sport bike braking performance. And thats not all: the Termignoni exhaust with dual tailpipes and black anodised aluminium cover, the nose fairing, lateral number holders and stubby mudguard are all clear references to the bikes that roared down British streets back in the 60s.

The chequerboard pattern is a recurring symbol in Cafe Racer culture. As in official competitions, the off-the-record races held by Rockers between one cafe and another would often end under a chequered flag. At the time, the distinctive black and white pattern became an icon for motorcyclists and others. The Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer has, then, drawn on that powerful symbol and put the chequerboard pattern right underneath the Scrambler name.
Bruno Spa ggiaris number 54
The novel lateral number holders on the Ducati Scrambler Cafe 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 Scramblers 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 Cafe Racer designers, who wanted to pay homage to the legendary rider from Reggio Emilia.
