Derbi are now showing a new version of the Mulhacen, at the EICMA in Milan. The Mulhacen Cafe 659 Angel Nieto Limited Edition. This rather good looking bike is fitted with a digital instrument panel, 17-inch alloy wheels, steel beam perimeter chassis, gold anodized 43mm USD Marzocchi forks, adjustable Sachs monoshock, and Brembo brakes with a 320mm brake disc at front.

Derbi have released this limited edition bike in tribute to Angel Nieto, a national hero in Spain. Considered to be one of the greatest motorcycle roadracers of all time, Nieto specialized in racing smaller displacement – 50cc, 80cc, and 125cc – bikes, and when he retired in 1986, he had 90 Grand Prix victories and 13 World Championships to his name!

Based on the original Mulhacen ‘scrambler,’ the Cafe 659 LE is powered by the same single-cylinder, four-valve, Yamaha-Minarelli 659cc engine that’s now been made Euro 3 compliant. Derbi say the ergonomics have been reworked and the bike is suitable for longer journeys. This limited edition bike will be available from June 2008 onwards. More details on the Derbi website here.
