The Scrambler 1100 is Ducati’s attempt at attracting customers who are looking for a retro muscle bike. It is available in three variants in India, priced between Rs 10.91 lakhs and Rs 11.42 lakhs (ex-showroom).

At the heart of the Ducati Scrambler 1100 Sport is the 1079cc Desmodue L-twin engine from the now-discontinued Monster 1100 Evo.

It churns out churns out 85bhp and 88Nm of torque and breathes out through an underseat exhaust. This Termignoni system is an optional extra.
The Scrambler 1100 also gets a four level traction control system, cornering ABS and three riding modes. The riding modes alter the power output and throttle response.
