Ducati Scrambler 1100
The Scrambler has come of age and the Land of Joy is now bigger and better.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 aims to meet the needs of even the most demanding, expert motorcyclists - but without compromising the fun, style and freedom that the Scrambler stands for. A beefier bike with a bigger engine and an even better set of standard equipment that lets riders upgrade without leaving the Scrambler family.
Just like in the '60s when the Scrambler was available with three different engines (250, 350 and 450 cm3), today's Land of Joy bikes offer three different displacements (400, 800 and 1100 cm3), resulting in a complete range with a flair for fun, iconic style, simplicity and self-expression.
Key features include a new 1079 cm3 engine, which delivers generous torque right from the bottom of the rev range, and an agile Scrambler chassis set-up that has been developed in parallel with the engine to put higher performance within reach of all riders.
With excellent pulling power and outstanding chassis geometry, the Ducati Scrambler 1100 maximises freedom and combines it with the excellent safety that comes with Bosch Cornering ABS and Traction Control: two features that go hand-in-hand with the superbly comfortable riding position specially developed for this model. On this Scrambler model the electronics package has evolved in line with Ducati tradition, maximising active safety thanks to the Bosch inertial platform.
Just like every other Ducati Scrambler bike, the 1100 is designed for boundless freedom of expression. The bike has been developed so it can be modified with ease and comes in three different versions: in addition to the Scrambler 1100, in fact, there's the Scrambler 1100 Special, which draws its inspiration from the custom world, and the Scrambler 1100 Sport equipped with Öhlins suspension for the sportiest Scrambler riders.
With the 1100, the Ducati Scrambler sees the introduction of new, specially designed
accessories and a dedicated apparel line that includes a leather jacket, a fabric jacket
and an open-face helmet co-produced with Roland Sands.
Advanced electronics to maximise safety and riding pleasure.
A bigger, higher-performing bike but with a full complement of easy-going Scrambler freedom. Thanks to the electronic Ride by Wire control system and the inertial platform, the Scrambler 1100 puts outstanding safety and performance in the grasp of all riders and, thanks to the three Riding Modes, does so whatever the riding conditions.
Brembo braking system with Bosch 9.1 MP Cornering ABS
Thanks to installation of the inertial platform, the Ducati Scrambler 1100 is equipped with a Brembo braking system with Bosch 9.1 MP Cornering ABS to ensure safety whatever the situation. To maximise stopping performance, the front wheel has a dual 330 mm disc with two 4-piston Brembo M 4.32B monobloc calipers with radial attachment whereas at the rear, a 245 mm disc is gripped by a caliper with a 34 mm piston. The single-setting ABS cannot be deactivated.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 is the first bike in the family to feature Ducati Traction Control (DTC). This active safety system - specially designed for the Scrambler - can be adjusted to 4 different levels. This solution offers outstanding performance while making adjustment as easy as possible for the rider. Level 1 is the least intrusive while level 4 maximises intervention and, therefore, safety. On the Scrambler 1100, Traction Control can be deactivated.
Three Riding Modes
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 has three Riding Modes: Active, Journey and City. Active Riding Mode provides full engine power (86 hp), a direct throttle connection and a Traction Control level that's compatible with sport riding. Journey Riding Mode is perfect for everyday use: full L-twin power (86 hp), a more fluid throttle connection than with Active mode and a Traction Control level developed for carefree riding. The third Riding Mode, City, lowers engine power to 75 hp (and 88 Nm of maximum torque), the same as on the Scrambler 800. Throttle control is extremely fluid and Traction Control ensures maximum safety.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 is powered by a Euro 4 compliant oil/air-cooled 1079 cm3 L- twin two-valve engine. A development of the Monster 1100 engine, this power unit has, in perfect Scrambler style, a 98 mm bore and a 71.5 mm stroke. The engine has been redesigned to prioritise fluid acceleration across the rev range and great handling. The Desmodue engine on the Ducati Scrambler 1100 has light machine-finished aluminium covers, including those on the clutch and alternator. Other aluminium items include the two belt covers, machine- finished to provide a further touch of flair.
The twin cylinder Desmodue engine on the Ducati Scrambler 1100 has been equipped with a single 55 mm full Ride by Wire throttle body with two sub-butterfly injectors: this solution, together with a generously sized airbox, ensures fluid power delivery and accurate control of the fuel mix aspirated into the cylinders. For this same reason each cylinder is fitted with twin spark plugs and a secondary air system.
Excellent pulling power is also put within everyone's reach by the 16° valve overlap angle. Thanks to these solutions the Ducati Scrambler L-twin puts out a maximum power of 86 hp at 7,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 88.4 Nm at 4,750 rpm, with smooth delivery across the rev range. The gearbox is a 6-speed unit while the clutch is the wet multiplate type with hydraulic control. The clutch also has a servo-assisted slipper function that limits rear wheel destabilisation during down-shifting.
The exhaust pipes on the Ducati Scrambler 1100 have a larger diameter than those on the Scrambler 800. The exhaust has a low-slung catalytic converter and dual steel silencers with aluminium sleeves, die cast aluminium end caps and 4 aluminium covers (two per silencer).
Designed to be simple and accessible - just like the Scrambler itself - this twin- cylinder engine also features competitive 12,000 km maintenance intervals (every 7,500 miles).
The Ducati Scrambler is iconic, as is the celebrated Ducati Desmo, the engine valve closure system that has made Ducati famous all over the world. Thanks to this system, the intake and exhaust valves are closed positively and precisely using a technique analogous to that employed to open the valves. The term desmodromic stems from the
Greek words desmos (link) and dromos (stroke); mechanically speaking, the term refers to control mechanisms enabling operation in both one direction (e.g. opening) and another acting in the opposite direction (closure or return).
However, the desmodromic concept is not a recent one and has been used in the motorcycle and car industries for some time. It first appeared, in a variety of forms, way back at the start of the twentieth century. In 1956 renowned engineer Fabio Taglioni set Ducati off along the desmodromic path: the first bike to feature the solution was the Grand Prix 125, which had three overhead camshafts, driven by a vertical shaft and a bevel gear. From that point on desmodromic history became a Ducati exclusive and in 1968 the company started producing this timing system as standard with the Mark 3 Desmo 350. This milestone of a motorcycle essentially had the same timing system as current 2-valve twin cylinder engines like the one on the Ducati Scrambler, clear evidence of the concept’s soundness. Used on all Ducati models, the system is also employed on Ducati Corse’s Superbikes and Desmosedici MotoGP bikes.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 features an all-new twin upper spar steel Trellis frame. As essential as the Ducati Scrambler itself, this engine-hugging frame is completed by a rear aluminium subframe. Thanks to a steering head angle of 24.5° and a 110 mm offset on the fork yokes, manoeuvrability is as outstanding in city traffic as it is on Alpine hairpins. Compared to the Scrambler 800, the aluminium fork yokes boast wider inter- fork clearance. Thanks to the wide handlebars, weaving your way through an urban obstacle course on the Scrambler is child’s play, while the 1,514 mm wheelbase maximises stability at high speeds. Up-sizing of the bike has given the Scrambler 1100 a new riding position: compared to the 800 version, the seat-footpeg gap is wider and the handlebars are further forwards and lower.
The steel fuel tank, with that unmistakeable teardrop silhouette, can hold 15 litres. With an excellent frame and outstanding chassis geometry, the Ducati Scrambler 1100 makes for relaxed riding that is easy yet fun. Despite the beefed-up size and performance with respect to the 800 cm3 versions, the Scrambler 1100 remains user-friendly and agile, a source of endless satisfaction on both city streets and the open road.
The Sport version of the Ducati Scrambler 1100 mounts Öhlins suspension (Kayaba on the Scrambler 1100 and Scrambler 1100 Special), with upside-down 45 mm forks and a rear shock with adjustable spring preload and rebound damping. Both provide 150 mm of wheel travel, ensuring the tyres hug the ground on any terrain, from city streets to easy-going off-road routes. It is this mix of comfort and performance that makes the Ducati Scrambler 1100 unique, letting riders express themselves to the max everywhere and anywhere.
Wheels and Tyres
The Scrambler 1100 comes with all-new aluminium machine-finished 10-spoke wheels – of evident flat-track origin – as standard. The design is a throwback to the days of thin, criss-crossed spokes inserted in the hub. The 3.5" x 18" front wheel and the rear 5.5" x 17"" one have been designed to be light. They mount an enduro-type Pirelli MT60 RS 120/80 ZR18 tyre at the front and the 180/55 ZR17 at the rear. Pirelli has designed the front tyre specially for the Ducati Scrambler 1100.
