Fun family, light, radiant and sweating the joy of living, the Ducati Scramblers are an invitation to ride … just ride, have fun riding a motorcycle that seems to say all the time " it’s cool !!! ". The 1100s are a bit more serious, almost more mature. Maybe that’s why we now find a PRO declination.
Reserved for pilots, professionals in the sector or wholesale art dealers? No, for those who want an even more assertive Scrambler. The 1100 Pro refocuses its interpretation of the concept with a migration of the exhausts. Here, they sit superimposed on the right of the saddle. It may not be much, but it slams a lot more.
Its posterior is mainly where this model asserts its difference. It is no longer encumbered by a long plate support like the arm. Only the headlight, turn signals and a fender appendage remain. To support the registration, a retaining piece is anchored on the swingarm, as on the 800 Scrambler.
With the big Scramblers, we find the old Desmo of 1079 cm3 which manages to cross the ages. The standards castrate him, forcing him to give back a good part of his former ardor. He persists, we also love him for that, for his character, his two valves per cylinder, his clean and authentic side. The manufacturer has managed to validate it Euro5., Without losing strength.
With its 86 horsepower, it is a little more powerful than the 800. On the other hand, the larger displacement allows you to have more than 30% of additional torque on hand..
As a PRO, the 1100 Scrambler mostly made cosmetic choices. A black anodization suffers from the fork tubes, rear frame, front fender plates and master cylinder covers. Conversely, the tank declares air of freshness with its color " Ocean drive ".
Under the more distinguished presentation, the Scrambler 1100 Pro retains the same technical and electronic configurations of the base model. A trellis frame made of steel tubes where a Kayaba shock absorber is anchored laterally, adjustable in preload and rebound. In front, the inverted fork of 45 mm (nice diameter) is adjustable from everywhere. 320mm rotors are bitten by Brembo M4.32 4-piston calipers. At the rear, less requirement and a 245 mm disc where a single piston bumps. Everything is supervised by an ABS Cornering.
Even if the machine loudly claims the neo-retro, a certain simplicity and a breath dedicated to the pleasure of riding, it thinks of security under infusion of software. 4-level traction control standby. As for the mood, it depends on one of the 3 Driving Modes – Active, Journey or City. Under the saddle, new by the way, a USB socket will feed mobile devices.
Every 1100 Scrambler informs the pilot via a dual LCD display instrument panel, complete, and expertly crafted.
The Ducati 1100 Scrambler Pro does not shake up the clan. It mainly emphasizes its presentation. It is also a new step to bring the whole family into the fold of Euro5. Without touching the philosophy pegged to its physique – " Land of Joy ", as they say in Bologna.
