Ducati launches Scrambler 1100 in India
Ducati has successfully launched Scrambler 1100 in Indian market. Internationally, Scrambler is available in three variants: Standard, Sport and Special, and all three variants are available in the Indian market as well. The Standard is priced at Rs 10.9 lakh, the Sport at 11.1 lakh and the Special at RS 11.4 lakh (ex showroom prices,India).
80’s influence can be spotted in the new Scrambler just like the old one. The Scrambler is still distinctively scrambler, it resembles the smaller Scrambler 800 with its round headlamps, petite fuel tank and retro single-piece saddle. The split exhaust system, placed on the either side of the saddle distinguishes it from others.
LED lights, a twin pod digital console and a whole bunch of electronic wizardry: five-level traction control, three riding modes (Active, RIding and City) and cornering ABS adds a dash of modernity to the bike. All these are available in the three of its variants.
The sport variant gets a couple of smart additions for the more performance seekers, which include the high-performance Ohlins suspension on both ends, aluminium wheels with machined spokes and tapered handlebars. Slick Viper Black colour scheme, with not-so-subtle yellow tank sides and dual yellow striping down the middle of the tank and mudguards. On the other hand, the Special gets blacked-out spoked wheels, chrome exhausts, and aluminum front/rear mudguards. Aiming at more hip-audience, it also gets a unique Custom Grey color as well as brushed-effect swingarm and adjustable front fork with gold-colored anodized sleeves.
Energising all the variants is the same updated version of the oil-cooled 1079cc L-Twin engine from the Monster 1100 EVO. It delivers 86PS of power at 7500 rpm and 88.4Nm of torque at 4750 rpm.
the Scrambler 100 now gets a new twin-spar steel trellis frame with aluminium subframe completing the rear to accommodate. While the Standard and Special variant has to settle for 45mm Kayaba USD forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear, the Sports variant gets more premium Ohlins suspension on both ends. Braking is handled by twin Brembo 320mm discs up front and a 245mm disc at the rear.
The flagbearer of Ducati’s Scrambler lineup, the Scrambler 1100 will rival the BMW R nineT, which is priced at Rs 15.55 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), in India
