Ducati’s 1100cc Scrambler gets monster attention

Ducati’s 1100cc Scrambler grabs the crowds at EICMA.

The ever-expanding range of the Scrambler has grown again with the new 1100cc version, which means that the Scrambler range now has three different engine sizes with the: 400, 800 being joined to the party by he 1100. The 1100 comes in 3 variations: The 1100, 1100 Special and the 1100 Sport.

Whilst the 800cc Scrambler now comes in 8 variations – with the Mach 2.0 being revealed at the Wheels and Waves event in the summer.

The Scrambler 1100 is the standard model of the three, new versions, but it still has plenty of new features to satisfy. This new bike maintains its old-school looks but is equipped with an LED daytime running light, traction control and Bosch cornering ABS which is a new to the Scrambler range.

The exhaust is different to that of the 800 and 400 versions – as the 1100 now have a twin exhaust system, which looks like it has been lifted straight from the Monster. The 1100 is available in ’62 Yellow and Shining Black for €12,990.

The 1100 Special shares the same engine and electronics package as the base model but it differs with lower handlebars, front and rear aluminium mudguards, chromed exhaust pipes, black spoked wheels, anodized aluminium fuel tank side covers, a double swingarm with brushed surface finishing and a new, dedicated seat fabric. The Special is only available in Custom Grey for €14,290.


The top-of-the-range 1100 Sport has a number of premium features, including most of those from the above Special, but also adjustable Öhlins suspensions, a fuel tank with yellow central stripes and under side covers, mudguards with yellow stripes, black fuel tank covers and an aluminium double swingarm. The Sport is only available in Viper Black and will set you back €14,990.
