At Rs. 13.74 lakh (ex-showroom), Ducati India has finally launched the Scrambler 1100 Pro and Sport Pro in India.
After launching the BS6-compliant Panigale V2 in India last month, Ducati has finally unveiled the much-awaited Scrambler 1100 Pro models. The urban off-roader is available in two variants, namely the 1100 Pro and the 1100 Sport Pro. The motorcycles have been launched with a price tag of Rs. 11.95 lakh for the Pro variant whereas the Sport Pro variant carries a cost-tag of Rs 13.74 lakh.
The Scrambler Pro twins are a premium offset of the regular Scrambler, and hence, they get a cosmetic update that looks soothing to the eyes. The duo comes in a white and black paint scheme with new bodily graphics and a trellis frame working as the skeleton of the motorcycle. Being a scrambler, they are equipped with café-racer style low handle-bars and bar-end clip-on mirrors. Between the handlebars feature a centrally-mounted fully-digital instrument cluster that offers a host of information to the rider.
On the rear, a side-mounted twin-muffler exhaust system gives away a punchy sound whereas the fender has been shortened to accommodate a newly repositioned number plate holder that sits quite low.
Power and performance
The twins from Ducati derive their power from a BS6-compliant 1,070cc L-twin engines that are capable of churning out a maximum power of 86PS at 7,500rpm and 88Nm at 4,750rpm of torque at the most.
Suspension setup and brakes
The Sport Pro variant is slightly premium because of the Öhlins suspension setup at the front as well as at the rear. Moving on to the Pro model, the suspension duties on the front and rear are handled by Marzocchi fork and Kayba monoshock, respectively.
The front tyre is equipped with two 320mm disc brakes from Brembo with radially mounted calipers whereas the rear receives a 245mm disc with a single caliper.
To enhance the handling and safety, both the motorcycles feature the Ducati Traction Control system, Cornering ABS from Bosch and three riding modes such as Active, Journey and City.
In terms of rivalry as per the engine specification and price-tag, the Scramblers from Ducati takes on the likes of the Triumph Scrambler 1200 that is priced at Rs. 10.7 lakh in India.
Last but not least, Ducati dealerships across the country have already started accepting bookings. Note that all prices are ex-showroom, India.
