Ducati has brought the BS6-compliant air-cooled L-twin Scrambler 1100s to our shores, with refreshed styling
Ducati India has launched the Scrambler 1100 Pro and Sport Pro at Rs 11.95 lakh and Rs 13.74 lakh, respectively. While the Scrambler 1100 model range originally comprised of three variants, only the Pro and Sport Pro have been brought up to Euro 5 norms, which means they will be sold under BS6 emissions standards in India. With the Scrambler range being one of Ducati’s best-selling products in our country, the Scrambler 1100 is primed for success. Here’s everything you need to know to get up to speed on these motorcycles.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 is powered by a 1079cc engine in a classic air-cooled L-twin configuration. The mill makes 82.3bhp and 90.5Nm of torque. This Scrambler is currently sold abroad in two variants – the 1100 Pro and 1100 Sport Pro, with the latter getting Ohlins 48mm fully adjustable USD forks and an adjustable Ohlins monoschock while the former has Marzocchi 45mm fully adjustable USD forks up front and a Kayaba monoshock out back. While the Pro gets the classic upright Scrambler handlebar, the Sport Pro gets a lowered wide ‘bar to lend a more aggressive stance to the rider. This makes the Sport Pro variant 40mm wider than the Pro, coming in at 1330mm wide as compared to the Pro’s 1290mm width. The Sport Pro also gets the number 1100 embossed on the aluminium plates that cover the 15-litre tank. Both bikes also get wider redesigned seats for better rider and pillion comfort.
Both bikes are based on a steel trellis frame and come with a seat height of 810mm. They are enabled with three Riding modes and Ducati Traction Control, thanks to ride-by-wire technology. The Scrambler 1100’s also get cornering ABS as standard. The beauty of the Scrambler range lies in its minimalistic design and the Pro’s paint schemes accentuate its curved lines. The 1100 Pro is offered in a dual-tone silver with yellow highlights Ocean Drive livery while the Sport Pro comes in a gorgeous Matte black finish.
This is Ducati India’s second BS6 offering in India after the Panigale V2 that was launched last month.
