2017 Ducati Scrambler Café Racer

A cafe racer from Ducati worth giving a try!!!

In the last couple of years, the Indian market has witnessed the arrival and introduction of many new motorcycles and concepts which have broken the conventional norms of motorcycling in India, of being a place of only two kinds of motorcycles- naked commuters and faired sportsbikes. Many new segments have been born and have broken the monotony, with one such concept of that of café racers.

Much popular in European countries, the café racers are purely for those who have the passion of letting loose and ride with all of their hearts open, thanks to their focus only on design and performance. It is the purest and simplest form of café racers, which have made them a bit of niche segments when compared to other categories of bikes.

For now, there are only a handful of café racers available in the country, which will soon be joined by the Ducati Scrambler Café Racer. Joining the lineup of fun yet affordable Scramblers from Ducati, the Scrambler Café Racer is the first ever café racer motorcycle introduced by Ducati in 21st century. Here’s our quick and comprehensive review of the all new Ducati Scrambler Café Racer:-

STYLING

Café racers are mostly talked about their specific aspect of individualistic designs, and in this particular aspect, the Scrambler Café Racer definitely scores full marks. Having the traditional trait of all Ducatis of being a handsome looking motorcycle with lot of Italian flair in its design, the Scrambler Café Racer combines the old world charm with many modern world design bits.

Starting off from the front, the Scrambler Café Racer retains the same good old round headlamp, with broken arc-shaped LED daytime running lamps incorporated within its circumference. However, unlike other variants of the Ducati Scrambler, the headlamp here comes enclosed in a spherical looking headlamp cowl, which makes the front fascia of the Scrambler Café Racer a bit bigger looking when compared to other variants. This cowl partially hides the single pod fully digital instrument console (more on that later), and gets the assistance of simple looking turn indicators shared with other Scramblers. The chopped front fender has been shared with other Scramblers as well, however, the Scrambler Café Racer has got bar end round rear view mirrors, in a typical café racer fashion.

The Scrambler Café Racer, when viewed from sideways, has got the same fuel tank which is adorned on the other versions of the Scrambler, however, here, it gets a special pin-striping job on both of its sides. The bike doesn’t get specific side body panels, but instead, it gets characteristic side number plates, which are usually seen on off-tarmac motorcycles. The single piece traditional café racer seat as well as rear seat cowl complete the café racer persona of the motorcycle, and with the absence of a proper rear fender and the presence of the number plate holder on the small rear tyre hugger accentuate its devilish side. Compared to other versions of the Scrambler, the Scrambler Café Racer has been blessed with black anodized aluminium Termignoni muffler covers, blackened engine and golden colored 10-spoke alloy wheels, which make the bike look even more glorious than what it is.

The fully digital instrument console on the Scrambler Café Racer has been shared with the rest of the versions of Ducati Scrambler, without any single difference. This round-shaped unit has digital readouts for speedometer, tachometer, fuel guage, trip meters, odometer, clock, gear indicator and temperature gauge. Like the overall design, the switchgear of the motorcycle too has an air of simplicity to it.

Overall, it is quite easy to accept that the Scrambler Café Racer is surely the most beautiful version out of the entire Scrambler range of Ducati, and has the ability to turn many heads owing to its timeless design.

POWERTRAIN

The design of the Scrambler Café Racer may evoke the senses and feels of an old school café racer of the bygone decades, but under the skin, it is a twenty-first century Ducati by every bit. It is powered by an L-twin Desmodromic fuel-injected 803cc engine, which pumps out 75 bhp of power and 68 Nm of torque. This is the same engine which used to thrust the Ducati Monster 796 as well, though for the Scrambler Café Racer, the cams are slightly redesigned in order to achieve a more usable top-end power. The engine channels the power produced to the rear wheel through a six-speed gearbox.

Unlike its other stable mates, the nature of this engine is not furious, but it’s a beast in disguise. The engine surprises you with its immediate power delivery as and when required, but otherwise it’s a calm engine which doesn’t feel wild when ridden sedately. It has been tuned in order to deliver a healthy top-end power, with adequate low-end and mid-range grunt.

RIDE AND HANDLING

Like all other Ducatis, the Scrambler Café Racer too sits atop a tubular Trellis frame, however, this time, it is a reinforced unit. The Scrambler Café Racer is the only version of the Ducati Scrambler which comes with clip-on handlebars, just like all the other café racers, which along with rear set foot-pegs may not make up a comfortable riding posture together, but they definitely manage to raise the fun factor with the sporty and aggressive seating posture. Being a slim motorcycle and weighing at 172 kgs only, the Scrambler Café Racer is one nimble motorcycle which manages to bring a smile on your face every time you wring its throttle.

Shared with other versions of the Ducati Scrambler, the Scrambler Café Racer comes fitted with 41mm upside down forks at front and pre-load adjustable side mounted monoshock - both sourced from Kayaba. A 330mm single disc brake at front and a 245mm disc brake at rear, coupled with ABS, are employed to bring the motorcycle to rest from motion. Except the ABS, there is no other electrical wizardry, which makes the Scrambler Café Racer an unadulterated motorcycle to ride.

PRICE AND COLOURS

Ducati is yet to officially announce the Scrambler Café Racer for the Indian market, but considering the growth of Ducati in person in the Indian market, as well as the growing love of café racers in the country, Ducati will be introducing the Scrambler Café Racer very soon I the Indian market, somewhere in the price range of Rs. 8-8.25 lakh. The motorcycle will be available in a single paint shade of Black Coffee, which comes with golden inserts to its fuel tank and alloy wheels.

COMPETITION

Being a middleweight retro café racer offering from Ducati, the closest and most obvious rival of the Scrambler Classic will be the Triumph Street Cup, which too was recently announced as an attempt to expand the Bonneville lineup. Having the same classic and old-world charm of a café racer from yesteryears with a modern touch in its design, the Triumph Street Cup is powered by a 900cc liquid-cooled, parallel twin engine which produces 55 PS of power and 80 Nm of torque.

Triumph Street Cup

On the front of looks, the Triumph Café Racer is the one which is slightly classier among the two, with its retro and classic lines staying true to the original Thruxton, unlike the Scrambler Café Racer, which looks a bit more modernized in comparison. Also, the character of both the motorcycles is pretty different – while the core strengths of the Street Cup lies in its bottom-end and mid-range performance, the Scrambler Classic loves to be revved hard, with its impressive performance at higher revs.

CONCLUSION

With the Scrambler Café Racer, Ducati has not just added one more jewel to the captivating lineup of Scrambler motorcycles, but in whole, has given a rebirth to the café racers which Ducati used to make in erstwhile eras, which were based on the Monster lineup. With its old school looks complemented with modern touches like golden alloy wheels, fully digital meters and meatier Pirelli rubbers, the Scrambler Café Racer takes itself to chart of the most beautiful looking middleweight motorcycles of today’s age. Adding to it, the typical Ducati traits of beign focused on adrenaline-rushing performance and sharp riding dynamics have been retained in the Scrambler Café Racer as well. All in all, the Scrambler Café Racer emerges as a beautiful looking machine for both amateurs as well as seasoned riders, which feels good at both standstill and the times when it is on the go.

Ever since its entry into the Indian market, Harley-Davidson has become a cult name and has carved a niche among all the motorcycle lovers who ride for the pure passion of motorcycling. Within the portfolio of Harley Davidson in India, though all the motorcycles have been accepted with open arms irrespective of their high price tags and few obvious shortcomings, the most recognised motorcycle among all happens to be the Street 750. It made its debut in India at the Auto Expo 2014 and became an instant success, for the fact that it was (and still is) the most affordable way to lay your hands on a motorcycle from the iconic brand Harley-Davidson is.

The craze of the mid-weight naked is becoming more and more alive in the Indian subcontinent, and Harley-Davidson is looking at getting a bigger piece of this market segment too. To try out their luck, the iconic American brand has launched the third member of its Street family. It had more aggressive styling and improved handling above all of the Streets. That is the all new Harley-Davidson Street Rod. A little sparse, a little spare, and an exercise in understatement. The most sport-oriented version of the Street series offering an alternative to more conventional cruiser variants. This young generation of a machine is a serious effort to reach customers outside the likes of the classic Harley Davidsons’.

This strategy has been already undertaken by the British and Italian powerhouses, and each has launched their 21st-century machines to rope in the new generation of riders early on. We are talking about the Ducati Scrambler Café Racer and the Triumph Street Cup, which too are based on their retro-themed versions – the Ducati Scrambler and Triumph Street Twin. Here’s a comprehensive comparison to find out if Harley’s new baby accomplishes to stand out from Ducati and Triumph to be the most lucrative motorcycle to own. Here you go:-

2016 EICMA Milan saw a lot of revelations that is going to change the way we bike. Modern and sophisticated packages that is one above the other. Ducati’s stable was also a busy bee with it showcasing the lineup for 2017 and included are two models that will join their badass Scrambler series that add the missing pieces to the puzzle. A gleaming and stylish Café-Racer and an off-road capable Desert Sled that we couldn’t help but get obsessed with them already. "Scrambler is no longer just a model, but now it is a brand," announced Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali.

Till today, Ducati has been making Scramblers which could have been abused but it pleased the urban way and masses and hence they became glorified street bikes. With five models in the lineup, this Desert Sled is finally the machine that is ready to get its feet properly dirty. Reinforced for off-road duty, this Desert Sled is most certainly a Scrambler-esque iteration of the South-West California and the Mexico’s Baja scenes in the ’60s and ’70s. They were fitted with engines displacing upwards of 500cc and stripped off anything that is nonsensical to run on roads or no roads. Featured on these were off-road tyres, wheels and spokes and were given modified suspension systems and engine skid plates; a trademark indispensable in shielding the bike from rocks, stones and the unforgiving desert terrain – that gave the Desert Sled its name.

In today’s day and segment of affordable middleweight motorcycles, the Ducati Scrambler needs no introduction. There are very few motorcycles which have witnessed the procedure of evolution for decades, among which one is Ducati Scrambler. In the beginning of 2015, Ducati resurrected the Scrambler brand from ashes with four different variants of the motorcycle, which used to be a fashion statement in the ‘60s. According to Ducati, if the erstwhile Scrambler wouldn’t have been discontinued back then, it would have evolved in the same form as the latest avatars of the Scrambler have emerged.

Now after having a tremendous year with the sales of Scramblers, because of which Duacti has been able to surpass the mark of 50,000 sales units globally, Ducati is all set to shake the middleweight segment once again with the smallest version of the Scrambler series, the Scrambler Sixty2.
