Derbi Mulhacen 659

SCRAMBLER IS BACK

In the 70's, 'scrambling' erupted with force all over Europe and was present in a multitude of demonstrations. To own and enjoy one of these two-wheeled wonders was to participate in the myth of American motorcycling. With them came a philosophy of life, 'On-Road', where basically the universe revolved around a bike. The 'Scrambler' signified liberty and for three decades came to symbolise something of an icon of youth culture. Since Derbi is a company that was created for lovers of motorcycling, we have decided to recreate the concept of this phenomenon.

We are facing a synthesis between the romanticism and the values of a different era, casting an eye at the flat-track and the American dirt track, extremely modern and aspiring to return to the motorcycling days of former glory. The aim is to inspire users, capable of inducing the spirit of the motorcycle into their everyday essence.

The selection of the name 'Mulhacén' has not been made without reason. The 3482 metre high mountain of the Iberian Peninsula, with the highest forest track in Europe, invites 'conventionalists' to exceed limits and touch the sky, with just the motorcycle for company, soaking up the nature and freedom of the surroundings.

This 'comeback' has been realised by modernity and technology, joining versatility, lightness and ease of conduction, purely because the pleasure of riding must be within reach of us all. Comfortable and agile for the city, 'swallowing' hundreds of miles of asphalt or relishing the trips Off-Road, graced with a 100% fashionable aesthetic, all will be easy for the Derbi Mulhacén 659.

Continuing the dynamics of Derbi's recent creations, the Mulhacén 659 arrives covered by a whole series of cutting edge technical components such as the inverted fork and 320 mm wave disc brakes with radial callipers. The care and attention that have placed in all the technical details, constructing a 'work of art', can be observed when looking at the rear suspension. Precious!

The bike uses a last generation four-stroke single cylinder engine respectful to the environment while remaining easy to ride. The reduced dimensions, the height of the saddle (800 mm) and 160 kilo weight formulate a pleasant handling and safe motorcycle. Here an outstanding role is played by the 18 inch wheels, ventilated brake kit, suspension and tubular chassis.

The 48 CV of power is created by 4 valves and liquid cooling that permits a high level of performance. Vigorous with low torque and calm and silent when pushed to the maximum, the bike is ready to be at one with nature and bring the rider ultimate satisfaction whether on asphalt or off-road.

Attractive, modern, romantic, simple to ride, versatile and technologically advanced are the adjectives that define a prototype that could be the sharp stone of a new exciting range.
