We’ve already covered the new 2018 Ducati Scrambler 1100 last week when a few pictures and speculated specs of the motorcycle were released. Now, it is official that the Scrambler 1100 will come in three new variants for the new 2018 series. Read on to find out.
The base model is the Ducati Scrambler 1100 followed by a more premium variant called the Scrambler 1100 Special and finally the top-end variant known as the Scrambler 1100 Sport. All of these 2018 models will be powered by the same engine, a 1,079cc, V-twin, air-cooled unit which has been tuned to churn out a max power of 84hp and a peak torque of 88Nm.
Other things that are common among all the three new Scramblers include the Bosch’s cornering ABS, dual massive 320mm disc brakes at the front with Brembo’s 4.32 calipers and a hydraulic master cylinder. There’s a 10-level traction control system available in all of the three models, which will provide the user various modes to play with. Complementing the traction control system is the ride-by-wire throttle. Then there is the 18-inch wheel at the front and a 17-inch one at the rear wrapped around with Pirelli MT60 RS tyres.
In terms of aesthetics, all the three new 2018 Ducati Scrambler 1100 models are quite similar to each other. For example, each one of them has the new LED headlight. So maybe it would be only the colour scheme which would allow us to differentiate these models from each other. However, there are certain changes in the spec sheet which creates all the difference among the three.
The base model, Ducati Scrambler 1100, and the top-end variant, the Scrambler 1100 Sport, both of them weigh approx 205 kg (kerb) whereas the middle variant, the Scrambler 1100 Special, is the heaviest among the lot weighing 210 kg (kerb). This, perhaps, is due to the fact that it comes with spoke wheels and not alloys. Other difference among the three is in the suspension department. The Scrambler Sport gets Ohlins, both at the front and the rear, whereas the other two models have Marzocchi forks (fully adjustable) and a Kayaba shock (preload and rebound settings only). The rest of the specs look very similar.
Ducati has not revealed any details regarding the pricing of any of the new models and neither their availability is known. We’re expecting to hear more about them soon and will keep you guys updated, so stay tuned.
