In the latest episode of “Jay Leno’s Garage,” Leno throws his leg over another Ducati. Unlike Leno’s last Ducati experience — this one you can see at your local Ducati dealer. Jason Chinnock, CEO of Ducati North America, brought the latest version of Ducati’s Scrambler motorcycle along – the Scrambler Café Racer.

Like Harley-Davidson and Triumph, Ducati’s Scrambler Café Racer is a nod to customized vintage iron but with modern efficiency and reliability. The Scrambler Café Racer mimics the stripped-down racers people build out of stock motorcycles.

Leno seems comfortable and natural on the lightweight Ducati, despite mostly riding larger full-size motorcycles from Indian and Harley-Davidson. He only rips it around the Los Angeles streets, so if you’re looking for some true off-road Scrambling, you might be disappointed.
