Ducati India Pvt Ltd has added yet another iteration of its Scrambler motorcycle, with the launch of the all-new Scrambler Cafe Racer at Rs 9.32 lakh, ex-showroom India. The Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer is claimed to offer a fresh take on the influential Cafe Racer motorcycling movement of 1960’s with its design. The company has also launched a dedicated line of accessories and apparel with the highly-customisable Scrambler Cafe Racer.
The Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer is powered by an 803 cc, air and oil-cooled, EURO IV-compliant, L-twin, Desmodromic distribution engine that delivers 73 hp of power at 8,250 rpm. The electronic fuel-injected engine puts out peak torque of 67 Nm at 5,750 rpm, featuring an exhaust system with single stainless steel muffler, Termignoni silencer with aluminium covers, catalytic converter and two lambda probes. The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, along with Ducati’s Adler Power Torque Plate Clutch (APTC) wet multi-plate with mechanical control.
The motorcycle combines the best of two worlds –design language of the Scrambler brand and a sporty riding position, the company noted. The Scrambler Cafe Racer features rear-view mirror mounted aluminium clip-on handlebars, black anodised aluminium cover, machined cooling fins and a dedicated seat featuring a cover for the passenger section. The motorcycle is available in a Black Coffee colour with black frame and gold wheels.
The Ducati Scrambler motorcycle features a tubular steel Trellis frame, along with upside down Kayaba 41 mm fork in front and a progressive linkage with pre-load adjustable monoshock suspension at the rear. It features an aluminium double-sided swing arm, with 10-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels front and rear, wrapped with Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres. In terms of braking, the front is equipped with a 330 mm semi-floating disc, with a radially-mounted Monobloc Brembo M4-32 calliper with four pistons, radial pump with adjustable lever and Bosch ABS as standard. The rear brake consists of a 245 mm disc, single-piston floating calliper with Bosch ABS as standard. The Scrambler Cafe Racer also comes with an LCD dashboard.
Sergi Canovas Garriga, Managing Director, Ducati India, said this motorcycle is a modern interpretation of the legendary Cafe Racer scene from the 1960s that triggered a motorcycling revolution. He added that Ducati is confident that with the Scrambler Cafe Racer, the company will successfully bring the global cultural phenomenon to India as well.
