Ducati’s Large Scrambler Scrambles Onto The Scene

The Scrambler 1100 gets subtle updates and a chunky price tag

  • The 1,079cc L-twin mill received its Euro5/BS6 updates earlier this year.
  • It will be available in two trims: Pro and Pro Sport.
  • There are only a handful of rider aids on the bike.

Ducati has expanded its BS6 portfolio to two models now as the Italian bikemaker has launched the Scrambler 1100 Pro in India. The bike is available in two variants: standard (i.e. the Pro) and Pro Sport. Prices for the new large Scrambler starts from Rs 11.95 lakh with the more premium version bearing a price tag of Rs 13.74 lakh. All prices, ex-showroom India. This makes the new Scrambler models Rs 1.04 lakh and Rs 2.32 lakh more than their BS4 counterparts. While the premium is sort of justified for the base Pro version, the Sport seems rather pricey now.

What exactly has Ducati changed on the Scrambler 1100? For starters, it gets the Pro suffix. This must have come in place to give it a slight distinction over its smaller 800cc sibling. Then there are subtle design updates. The tear-drop panels on the fuel tank get new stickers, the seat has a different shape, the tail has been shortened and the exhausts are now on the right side only.

The engine remains the same 1,079cc L-twin air-cooled unit but now cleaner in terms of emissions. It is tuned slightly differently for the two variants. The engine on the more casual, street-friendly Pro model puts out 84.7PS and 90.5Nm while the cafe racer-esque Sport makes 85.65PS and 88Nm. Both engines get the same six-speed gearbox with a hydraulically-actuated slip-and-assist clutch. Rider aids found on board include three riding modes (Active, Journey and City), four-level traction control (fully off as well) and cornering ABS.

The trellis frame remains constant on both Scrambler 1100s but you get different suspension components. The Pro has a fully-adjustable Marzocchi USD and a preload- and rebound-adjustable Kayaba monoshock. Blingy Ohlins suspension units are found at both ends on the Pro Sport variant, with the same levels of adjustability as the Pro model. Brembo M4.32 monoblocs, 17-inch alloy wheels and Pirelli MT60 RS tyres are common for both.

Ducati will soon be amping up its product range in India with the launch of the Multistrada 950 (as well as the Multistrada 950 S). Existing Ducati models that are yet to receive their EU5 updates will not make it down to India anytime soon.
