Ducati Scrambler Café Racer
The Ducati Scrambler Café Racer, Scrambler’s 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 today’s Land of
Joy. The typical Scrambler teardrop tank with interchangeable panels is combined with a new seat, specially designed and equipped with a seat cover for the passenger.
The handlebars with mirrors attached to the ends are typical of 60s racing; the same goes
for the Termignoni exhaust with double silencer, the headlight fairing, the side
number holders and the new Pirelli Diablo™ Rosso II with 17” aluminium wheels. The
styling is a clear reference to the style of the Rockers that in those days sped
through the streets of the English capital. The Ducati Scrambler Café Racer reinterprets what was one of the most influential movements in the history of motorcycling, recreating a legend with a contemporary character reflecting the essence of the Scrambler. The Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer is priced here at RM68,899.00 including GST.
Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled
Straight from the desert and mountains of California, Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled
makes its entry in the Land of Joy, an enduro version inspired by the world of offroad
motorcycles that made history in the United States during the 60s and 70s.
The name Desert Sled refers to standard motorcycles over 500 cc that were modified by
riders for use in the Californian desert with knobbly tyres, reinforced suspensions,
spoked wheels and engine protection plates to protect the bike against the debris of
impassable desert roads.
The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled perfectly reflects this spirit without forgetting lifestyle values, and expands the Ducati Scrambler family with a new version dedicated to off-road style. Desert Sled inherits the Urban Enduro logo as it is its explicit evolution. In fact, it is to its strong offroad character that we owe the new riding position
characterised by a higher seat, a reinforced frame and fully adjustable suspension,
the presence of a type-approved grid on the front headlight, the engine protection,
and with the new Pirelli ScorpionTM Rally STR tyres with spoked wheels 19″ front / 17″
rear. The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled is priced at RM68,899.00 including GST.
