Ducati’s Scrambler lineup isn’t stopping at the Desert Sled model we saw yesterday as the Italian manufacturer presented the new Cafe Racer derivation at the EICMA show in Milan, evoking a modern interpretation of the legendary ‘60s bikes that triggered a motorcycling revolution.

The 2017 Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer is built on the same platform as the original Icon model and gets powered by the air and oil-cooled 803 cc twin-cylinder Desmodue engine cranking 75 hp and 68 Nm of torque.

What sets it apart can be found in the details, and starting with the front, you get a sporty USD fully adjustable fork, tiny mudguard, a subtle Cafe style headlight fairing, low clip-on handlebars and a big single 330 mm disc brake grabbed by a 4-piston radial-mounted Brembo M 4.21 monoblock caliper that leaves a clear view on the right side of the wheel.

Further on, the Scrambler Cafe Racer comes with a teardrop gas tank with interchangeable side panels, a long flat seat continued with a classic cowl at the back, low plate holder, bar-end rearview mirrors and a Termignoni exhaust with dual tailpipes and black anodized aluminum cover.

To complete the look, the bike wears the ’54’ number, which once belonged to Bruno Spaggiari; a highly successful Ducati rider who won the Mototemporada Romagnola classic road race in 1968.

The new Cafe Racer is available in Black Coffee with black frame and gold wheels only along with standard ABS and Euro 4 compliance. Optional equipment is offered too, starting with an X-shaped headlight mesh guard, continuing with a small leather tank bag, spoked rims and more.

Ducati’s catalog also points out some apparel to go with the bike, including a black leather jacket, full-face Bell helmet designed by Roland Sands, plus some cafe-styled sweatshirts and T-shirts.
