Ducati India to launch the Scrambler 1100 model in the country. The company recently took to their social media channels to announce that the Ducati Scrambler 1100 will make its Indian debut on the 27th August 2018. Prices for the Ducati Scrambler 1100 is expected to start from Rs 11 lakh, ex-showroom.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 will be available in three variants: Standard, Special and Sport. Few company showrooms have already started accepting bookings for the upcoming motorcycle. Depending on the dealers, the booking amount for the motorcycle varies between Rs 1 to 2 lakh.
Aesthetically, the Ducati Scrambler 1100 retains a design similar to its smaller 800cc displacement sibling. However, the larger displacement Scrambler does come with a few differences.
The Scrambler 1100 offers a host of aluminium finish accents on the engine cover, clutch and alternator cover. The motorcycle also gets unswept twin exhaust pipes, which come parallel to the pillion seat.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 also features an LCD instrument panel, which provides information such as the various riding modes, as well as traction control settings among others.
The riding position on the Scrambler 1100 is also slightly different from its smaller sibling. The Scrambler 1100 comes with lower and farther set handlebar and footpegs. This offers a riding position, similar to that of the Ducati Monster offering.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 is powered by a 1,079cc, air-cooled, L-Twin engine. This is the same power unit as on the Monster 1100 offering. However, the engine on the Scrambler is slightly tweaked for better fueling. The engine produces 85bhp and 88Nm of torque. It is further mated to a six-speed gearbox, with a slipper clutch as standard.
The suspension on the Standard and the Special variants come with 45mm Marzocchi USD front forks and Kayaba monoshock at the rear. While the top-end Scrambler Sport 1100 features the Ohlins package with 48mm USD front forks and a monoshock at the rear.
In terms of braking on the Scrambler 1100, all three variants come with dual 320mm and single 245mm discs at the front and rear, respectively.
Thoughts On The Ducati Scrambler 1100
The Ducati Scrambler 1100, once launched in India will be the top-of-the-line model in the Scambler India range. The Scrambler 1100 offers a unique design and lacks any direct rivals in the country. However, at the expected price bracket, the Scrambler 1100 will take on the likes of the Triumph Street Triple RS and the Triumph Thruxton R.
