Luxury motorcycle brand Ducati on September 22 launched its first BS-VI Scrambler, the all-new Scrambler 1100 Pro and 1100 Sport Pro in India. The new models are priced at Rs 11.95 lakh and Rs 13.74 lakh respectively.
Offering even more fun and performance, featuring an original design, the new Ducati Scrambler 1100 Pro and 1100 Sport PRO are the ideal choice for those who want to ride a motorcycle with a 1100 CC L-twin two-valve engine with generous torque available right from the bottom of the rev range, said a press release issued by the bike-maker.
The Scrambler 1100 Pro also features a 15-litre steel tank that, combined with an all-new comfortable seat, ensures that even the longest rides are enjoyed in comfort.
The motorcycle puts out a maximum power of 86 hp at 7,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 88.4 Nm at 4,750 rpm and is tuned for smooth delivery of power across the rev range. It is equipped with a six-speed gearbox and the clutch is a wet multi plate type with hydraulic control and a servo-assisted slipper function that limits rear wheel destabilisation during down-shifts.
Mr. Bipul Chandra, Managing Director of Ducati India, said, “Scrambler is one of the most characterful, free spirited and powerful entry-level Ducati in our portfolio. The new Scrambler 1100 Pro range takes those qualities a notch higher allowing riders to explore endless possibilities on their rides.”
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 Pro stands out for its new two-tone ‘Ocean Drive’ colour scheme, combined with a steel Trellis frame and rear aluminium sub-frame, which are both black. A new right-side dual tailpipe and low-slung number plate holder ensure distinctive rear-end styling and, together with the new livery, give the bike a coiled, compact look.
Another hallmark is the framed headlight; inspired by the protective adhesive tape used back in the ‘70s, a black metal ‘X’ has been incorporated inside the headlight: a detail that makes the bike instantly identifiable, even with the lights off. At the rear, instead a full-LED taillight assembly emits a soft light, making use of a technology unique within the motorcycling world.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 Pro twins are also at the forefront of electronics. They are equipped with Ducati Traction Control, regulated specifically for these models, and Cornering ABS, which ensures safety on every bend.
