The launch was held at the annual Art of Speed Malaysia festival earlier today at Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS).
The latest variants of the Ducati Scramblers were chosen to make their debut at Malaysia’s main home-grown Ol-Skool and Kustom Kulture event due to their custom appeals with the Italian manufacturer embedded in the very cores of the two new Ducati Scrambler additions.
“In line with the customisation scene, the Scrambler is a very popular model in Malaysia and we’re proud to announce that the much awaited Cafe Racer and Desert Sled variants are now available here”, stated Mr Fazli Hisham, Head of Next Bike Sdn Bhd.
Similar to the other Ducati Scrambler models apart from the Sixty2, both the Cafe Racer and Desert Sled are equipped with the 803cc, L-twin, Desmodromic engines which are able to produce 73hp at 8,250rpm and 67Nm of torque at 5,750rpm.

2017 Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer
The Cafe Racer variant pays great homage to a lot of legendary bikes that have came and went in the motorcycle world and this very special Ducati Scrambler is screaming with the sound of freedom, free spirit and the very essence of style. Inspired by the glory days of motorcycles in the 1960s, the ‘Black Coffee’ colour way seems fitting for the latest bike hailing from Ducati’s Land of Joy.
Like most appealing factors of a cafe racer motorcycle, the Ducati Scrambler version offer a variety of customisation options including interchangeable panels for that gorgeous teardrop fuel tank that will help add a personal touch to go along with the new seat.
Specially designed for the Cafe Racer, the brand new seat design comes equipped with a seat cover for the passenger for the days you feel like riding solo with extra style and substance. The handlebars and side mirrors were also inspired by a lot of race-inspired motorcycles from the 1960s and early 70s.
The most beautiful addition in our opinion has to be the Termignoni exhaust system with double silencer system which sends out a nice grunt and roar while barrelling down the highway and at the same time improves the overall performance of the new Ducati Scrambler.
Similar styling can be seen throughout the motorcycle form its headlight fairing, side plate number holder, and its 17-inch aluminium wheels wrapped in very modern Pirelli Diablo™ Rosso II rubbers for that extra grip and overall riding feel. Those who are looking for slightly darker side without losing any of the cool appeal will go very well with the new Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer.
Those who are interested in getting a Ducati Scrambler Cafe Racer of their very own should be happy with the final pricing of RM68,899 (basic price with GST).

2017 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled
Those who demand something more rugged and tough can always opt for the beautiful 2017 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled. Hailing straight from the desert and mountains of California, the latest entry in the Ducati Scrambler range is an endure version inspired by off-road bikes that created history back in the glory days of the 1960s and 1970s.
Riding in deserts require some extra modifications and upgrades to the standard road motorcycles which was the main inspiration of the Desert Sled. Built for absolute toughness, the Desert Sled comes with a slightly different riding position thanks to its higher seating arrangement, reinforced frame and comes with fully adjustable suspensions for optimum riding pleasure.
The new Desert Sled also comes with some extra engine protection and a slightly bigger 19-inch front and 17-inch rear wheel wrapped with a pair of Pirelli Scorpion™ Rally STR tyres to give some extra grip on terrains don’t really offer much to begin with especially for normal road-going motorcycles.
The Desert Sled performs just as good on normal paved roads but to truly experience everything that this particular Ducati Scrambler has to offer, it demands to be let loose on off-road terrains where anyone can rip and shred with the style, substance and essence of bike made by Ducati.
The 2017 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled is also priced at RM68,899 (basic price with GST). Those who are in town or in the vicinity of the Art of Speed Malaysia 2017 festival can drop by to visit the Ducati Scrambler booth for some great offers and promotions.
