Three new Ducati Scrambler 1100s released into the wild

After the regular model leaked, surprise Special and Sport variants join the big Scrambler party.

We knew the Ducati Scrambler 1100 was coming. We even saw it earlier this weekend. But the two new Sport and Special versions were a slight surprise.

What wasn’t surprising was that the 1100 looks chunky. It’s big and almost ‘Monster’ looking and we can’t work out if we like it. But it’ll almost certainly be a hoot to ride and when all is said and done, that’s what a good motorcycle should be.

[The following is cut-and-pasted from the ‘Land of Joy’ website that Ducati have set up for the Scrambler brand. It’s late, we’re tired and being brutally honest, Ducati Scrambler have a wonderful turn of phrase that deserves to be offered to you in its purest form].

Ducati Scrambler 1100

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 equipment that lets riders upgrade without leaving the Scrambler family.

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.

Ducati Scrambler 1100 Special

Taking its cue from customisation, the Scrambler 1100 Special has a decidedly “modern classic” feel thanks to blackspoked wheels, chrome exhausts and aluminium front/rear mudguards. The “Custom Grey” colour is unique to this version, as is the brushed-effect swingarm and the adjustable front fork with gold-coloured anodized sleeves.

Other distinctive Scrambler 1100 Special elements include low-slung tapered handlebars and a brown seat with dedicated lining.

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 recognised 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 aluminium wheels with machine-finished spokes, tapered handlebars and a seat with a dedicated lining.
