A Scrambler For The Discerning Ducatista: The Scrambler Café Racer

The Ducati Scrambler Café Racer is one of the most recognizable Ducati motorcycles in the Scrambler range. It’s sharp, sleek, incredibly stylish, and affordably priced! When it first rolled onto the scene, it was an instant hit and has been ever since. Unfortunately, the model in the 2021 Ducati line-up doesn’t receive any updates for the new year.

This sexy Italian-made motorcycle shares almost all of the same DNA as the rest of the mid-sized Scrambler line. It features the same 803cc Desmodromic L-twin engine, with 73 horsepower and 48.8 lb-ft of peak torque, along with all of the same riding aids found on the rest of the range. It also features premium LED lighting, machine-finished aluminum components, and a steel fuel tank as standard equipment.

However, what sets the Café Racer apart from the rest is its compact racing physique, which takes inspiration from Ducati’s legendary Sport Classic. To give it the edge, the Scrambler Café Racer uses clip-on handlebars, bar-end mirrors, a sporty front mudguard, a side number plate, a classic café racer-style seat, and spoked aluminum wheels.

For 2021, the Scrambler Cafe Racer is available in a unique blue and silver “Silver Ice Matt” color option.

The 2021 Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer starts from $11,995 USD / $13,495 CAD.

    Ducati discontinued this bike model. 2020 was the last year offered. There is no 2021 cafe racer.
