Ducati India has launched the all-new Ducati Scrambler 1100 range in India, priced from INR 10.91 lakh (ex-showroom India). The Scrambler 1100 range includes three variants - Standard, Special, and Sport.
While the Ducati Scrambler 1100 Standard variant is priced at INR 10.91 lakh, the Scrambler 1100 Special costs INR 11.12 lakh. The range-topping Scrambler 1100 Sport comes at INR 11.42 lakh (all prices are ex-showroom India). The Scrambler 1100 range is bigger than the other Ducati Scrambler models, and offer unprecedented handling and outstanding rider comfort.
As compared to its younger siblings, the Ducati Scrambler 1100 features cosmetic upgrades like an under-seat twin-exhaust setup, and an aluminium finish to the alternator, clutch, and engine covers, respectively. The Scrambler 1100 comes with an aggressive riding position with a farther-pushed handlebar and rear-set foot-pegs.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 line-up features an all-new digital instrument cluster, and an extensive suite of electronic rider aids like cornering ABS, five-level traction control system, and three riding modes - Active, Journey and City. The motorcycle also features ride-by-wire throttle and an inertial measurement unit (IMU) for controlling lean angle sensitivity.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 employs a 1,079 cc, Desmodromic L-twin, air-cooled, fuel injected motor that is programmed to pump out a maximum power of 85 bhp at 7,500 rpm while developing 88 Nm of peak torque at 4,750 rpm. The engine works in sync with a 6-speed gearbox with a standard slipper clutch, which helps during aggressive downshifts.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 Standard and Special versions come equipped with 45 mm Marzocchi inverted front fork with preload and rebound damping adjustability, while the rear gets a Kayaba mono-shock with rebound and preload adjustability. The Scrambler 1100 Sport variant trades the Marzocchi forks in favour of a 48 mm fully-adjustable Ohlins USD unit.
The Scrambler 1100 Special version draws inspiration from the custom-scene with wire-spoke wheels, lower handlebars, quilted brown leather seat, chrome exhaust headers, and a brushed swing arm. That said, all three bikes feature twin 330 mm discs at the front with Brembo M4.32B Monobloc 4-piston callipers and a 245 mm rear disc brake with a single-piston calliper.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 rivals the Kawasaki Z900 RS, BMW R nineT Scrambler, and the Triumph Thruxton R. The standard Scrambler 1100 is available in the ’62 Yellow and Shining Black colour options while the Special and Sport versions are offered with the dedicated Viper Black and Custom Grey paint schemes, respectively.
