SCRAMBLER SPORT 1100

As the name implies, the Scrambler 1100 Sport takes a sportier angle. Inspired by the numerous “racer” bikes put together by Scrambler owners, this model is easily recognized by its forks and adjustable Öhlins shock. The Scrambler 1100 Sport comes in “Viper Black” with yellow tank sides and dual yellow striping down the middle of the tank and mudguards. It also features aluminum wheels with machine-finished spokes, tapered handlebars and a seat with a dedicated lining.

SCRAMBLER SPECIAL 1100

Taking its cue from the custom scene, the Scrambler 1100 Special has a decidedly “modern classic” feel thanks to black-spoked wheels, chrome exhausts, and aluminum front/rear mudguards. The “Custom Grey” color is unique to this version, as is the brushed-effect swingarm and the adjustable front fork with gold-colored anodized sleeves. Other distinctive Scrambler 1100 Special elements include low-slung tapered handlebars and a brown seat with dedicated lining.

Following is the press release issued by Ducati at EICMA:

The Scrambler has come of age and the Land of Joy is now bigger and better.

The Ducati Scrambler 1100 aims to meet the needs of even the most demanding, expert motorcyclists – but without compromising the fun, style and freedom that the Scrambler stands for. A beefier bike with a bigger engine and an even better set of standard equipmentthat lets riders upgrade without leaving the Scrambler family.

Just like in the ’60s when the Scrambler was available with three different engines (250, 350 and 450 cm3), today’s Land of Joy bikes offer three different displacements (400, 800 and 1100 cm3), resulting in a complete range with a flair for fun, iconic style, simplicity and self-expression.

Key features include a new 1079 cm3 engine, which delivers generous torque right from the bottom of the rev range, and an agile Scrambler chassis set-up that has been developed in parallel with the engine to put higher performance within reach of all riders.

With excellent pulling power and outstanding chassis geometry, the Ducati Scrambler 1100 maximises freedom and combines it with the excellent safety that comes with Bosch Cornering ABS and Traction Control: two features that go hand-in-hand with the superbly comfortable riding position specially developed for this model. On this Scrambler model the electronics package has evolved in line with Ducati tradition, maximising active safety thanks to the Bosch inertial platform.

Just like every other Ducati Scrambler bike, the 1100 is designed for boundless freedom of expression. The bike has been developed so it can be modified with ease and comes in three

different versions: in addition to the Scrambler 1100, in fact, there’s the Scrambler 1100 Special, which draws its inspiration from the custom world, and the Scrambler 1100 Sport equipped with Öhlins suspension for the sportiest Scrambler riders.

With the 1100, the DucatiScrambler sees the introduction of new, specially designed accessories and a dedicated apparel line that includes a leather jacket, a fabric jacket and an open-face helmet co-produced with Roland Sands.
