Ducati Scrambler 1100 Powers up a Sales Powerhouse
The Ducati Scrambler range has, to the surprise of exactly no one, proven to be a smash hit for the Italian motorcycle maker. Its spot-on proportions, wide selection of colors and styling themes and snappy 803 cc engine are an incredibly attractive combination. However, not everyone is satisfied with the 73 horsepower emanating from the 803 cc L-twin…which probably explains why Ducati has introduced a big-engine variant: The Ducati Scrambler 1100.
Sharing its 1,079 cc L-twin with the Monster 1100 Evo, this big block brother of the beloved original Scrambler jingles its drive chain to the tune of 86 horsepower and 65 lb.-ft of torque. So it’s a good thing that all three versions of the Scrambler 1100 (standard, Special and Sport) come with a sophisticated Bosch-supplied cornering ABS and traction control system. As for special touches on the different trim levels, the 1100 Special features unpainted aluminum fenders, blacked-out wire-spoke wheels and a brown quilted leather saddle, while the 1100 Sport boasts adjustable Öhlins suspension bits and a menacing black color scheme with yellow stripes and accents.
Priced at $12,995 for the standard version, $14,295 for the 1100 Special to $14,995 for the 1100 Sport, the Ducati Scrambler 1100 range is priced with an aggression that matches its performance. We can only assume that they will only add to the Ducati Scrambler success story.
