Ducati is one such company which has kind of been out of the radar in India recently. This can be attributed to its slow product launches and lack of productive work going inside the company. All that is set to change soon as Ducati will be bringing back the Scrambler 1100, albeit in a BS-VI form.
It is now been revealed that the BS-VI compliant Ducati Scrambler 1100 is not far away from coming back to the market. In fact, it is set to officially come here on September 22. Ducati had teased the motorcycle recently on their India website, which indicated at its launch soon.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 will be the second model from Ducati to get the BS-VI upgrade after the Panigale V2. The company may also offer the motorcycle in two new variants, namely the 1100 Pro and 1100 Sport Pro. Both variants have been upgraded to the Euro 5 emission norms, which more or less is the equivalent of the BS-VI norms that are currently in operation here.
The 1100 Pro and 1100 Sport Pro will be offered in different packages, although they will be sharing the same components and elements. The Scrambler 1100 will come powered by a 1079cc, aur-cooled L-Twin motor, which interestingly produces different power outputs for both variants. The 1100 Pro makes 84.7 BHP of power and 90.5 Nm of torque with the motor.
On the other hand, the 1100 Sport Pro can deliver 85.65 BHP of power along with 88 Nm of torque carrying the same engine. This of course will be the major change seen on both motorcycles when being compared to each other. The other such change that we can notice is that the 1100 Pro will be featuring a wide handlebar whereas the 1100 Sport Pro will have a cafe racer like handlebars placed in a lower position.
Ducati will be giving both the variants of the Ducati Scrambler 1100 a 6-speed transmission which will be available with the option of a slipper clutch. The Scrambler 1100 will be coming with features such as three driving modes, namely Active, Journey and City, cornering ABS and Ducati Traction Control (DTC) as standard. It is expected to be priced around Rs.12-14 lakhs during its launch.
