With its long association with the world of competitive racing, Derbi pays homage to the legendary racing tradition of its “Red Bullets”, winners of 10 World Championships in the 50cc, 80cc and 125 cc categories. With this in mind, Derbi have dedicated this new Euro3 version of the Mulhacén Café 659 to the “12+1 World Champion” Angel Nieto, the man who contributed the most to make the Derbi brand famous in the racing world.

The distinctive characteristics of this special edition include a fire red lower section with a black horizontal band extending the entire length of the motorcycle in pure Seventies racing style. There is no doubt about the racing character of this new Derbi. The new street sports tires, the 17-inch alloy rims, the impressive 320 mm rear brake with Brembo radial caliper and the backlit digital instrument panel are the proof of the attention with which this new model was planned and created.

The Mulhacén Café 659 is the answer to enthusiasts who were crying out for a street version of the Mulhacén.  Based on the scrambler, the Mulhacén Café retains the distinctive characteristics that made the scrambler so great: the robust and reliable Yamaha-Minarelli single-cylinder four-valve 659-cc engine (Euro 3 compliant), steel tube frame with aluminum swingarm and the refined progressive linkage on which the original adjustable lateral mono shock absorber operates. The ergonomics of the motorcycle have been carefully reworked for the street, and now offer a more comfortable ride for both driver and passenger making it also suitable for long distance riding. The new Mulhacén Café 659 Angel Nieto be available on the market as a limited edition.
