Ducati has launched the Scrambler 1100 variants at a starting price of for Rs. 10.91 lakhs (Ex-showroom, ). The Scrambler 1100 is available in three variants - the Standard Scrambler 1100 (Rs.10.91 lakhs) , Scrambler 1100 Special (Rs.11.12 lakhs) and Scrambler 1100 Sport (Rs. 11.42 lakhs) (All prices Ex-showroom) . The Scrambler 1100 range takes inspiration from the customization world. Scrambler 1100 has a more powerful 1,079 cc L-twin borrowed from the Monster 1100, but revised for more optimal power across the mid-range and a smoother throttle response. The motor makes 86hp at 7,500rpm and 88Nm of torque at 4,750rpm and is paired to a six-speed transmission.
The new Ducati Scrambler 1100 gets a wider handlebar when compared to the already existing smaller capacity Scrambler models. Moreover, the bike gets the adjustable clutch and brake levers to offer convenience to the rider as per his or her requirements. It gets a traction control system to offer added safety and convenience. Furthermore, the bike gets a cornering ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and ride by wire technology to ensure that there is a good balance between safety and performance of the motorcycle. It also gets a more rugged, beefier teardrop tank, interchangeable aluminium side panels, that are classic yet have a new line, make this Scrambler model immediately recognisable.
The Scrambler 1100 is designed on the base Ducati Scrambler, but it looks beefier and bigger than the Scrambler 800. A fully digital dual-element LCD instrument panel with a custom retro scale on the rpm indicator takes inspiration from the bikes of the ’70s. The most distinguishing feature are the upswept, twin underseat exhausts, and of course the new colours and bigger engine. The design language is the typical neo-retro design which has been seen on the smaller Scrambler, but with some minor tweaks, and revised ergonomics. The ride-by-wire throttle allows three riding modes - Active, with 85 bhp and aggressive throttle response, Journey with 85 bhp and smooth throttle response and City, with power restricted to 75 bhp. Also available are four levels of traction control, which can be switched off and Bosch cornering ABS.
