The Scrambler 1100 gets a redesigned chassis and a host of electronic rider aids. The ride-by-wire throttle features three riding modes – Active, Journey and City. Active has the full 85 bhp with aggressive throttle response, while Journey also has the maximum 85 bhp on tap, but with a smoother throttle response. City has power dialled down to 75 bhp with a smooth throttle response. The Scrambler 1100 also features a four-level traction control system, and Bosch cornering ABS, along with big piston brake pads, adjustable clutch and brake levers.
On the cosmetic side, the Scrambler 1100 doesn’t stray too much from the Ducati Scrambler silhouette but gets beefier and muscular, with twin underseat exhausts, and revised ergonomics. The bike gets a new twin spar, steel-trellis frame, complemented by a double-sided aluminium swingarm. Also new is a brand new, full-digital instrument panel, which takes design inspiration from the bikes of the 1970s. Deliveries for the Ducati Scrambler 1100 will begin next month, and although it doesn’t have any real rival in that segment or type, at that price point, the Scrambler 1100 competes with the likes of the Suzuki GSX-S1000, and even the Triumph Street Triple ₹
The 1100 also comes with new, specially designed accessories and a dedicated apparel line. The 1100 is available in ’62 Yellow and Shining Black color, with the Sport and Special in their own dedicated Viper Black and Custom Grey with yellow highlights on the tank color schemes respectively.
