Ducati has launched the most powerful Scrambler, the Scrambler 1100, in India at Rs 10.91 lakh. The big-hearted cousin of the 800 will be available in three variants – the Standard 1100, the Special (Rs 11.12 lakh) and the Sport (Rs 11.42 lakh).

If you are thinking that this is just a regular Scrambler with a bigger engine, then you are wrong. It may look like the standard Scrambler, but it is an all-new bike. The 1100 is longer than the 800, it’s heavier than the 800 and you sit 20mm higher off the ground compared to the 800. Now that we are speaking of differences, the fuel tank on the 1100 is also bigger than the 800 – at 15-litres, the capacity has been increased by 1.5-litres.

The bike gets a 1,079cc, air-cooled, L-Twin motor that puts out 84bhp and 88Nm of torque. That’s a boost of 10bhp and 21Nm over the Scrambler 800. The motor is coupled to a six-speed gearbox. The Scrambler 1100 tips the scale at 206kg (20kg heavier than the 800) and sits on the steel trellis frame. The Scrambler 1100 and the Special rides on Pirelli tyres (120/70 ZR18 up front and 180/55 ZR17 at the rear) and is equipped with a fully adjustable fork at the front from Marzocchi and pre-load/rebound-damping adjustable monoshock from Kayaba at the rear. On the other hand, the Scrambler Sport is equipped with 48mm USD fork and preload/rebound-damping adjustable monoshock – sourced from Öhlins. Stopping power comes from a 320mm floating disc at the front and a 245mm disc at the rear.

As standard, it gets Ducati Safety Pack (cornering ABS + DTC), LED lights, LCD instrument with gear and fuel level indications and under-seat storage compartment with USB socket.

The Standard Scrambler 1100 is available with two paint schemes – yellow and black. While the Special is available with just one paint scheme – grey, the Sport is available in satin black colour.

At this price, the Scrambler 1100 doesn’t have any direct rivals, but in terms of engine capacity, it rivals the Triumph Bonneville T120.
