BORGO  PANIGALE, Bologna – Ducati is  at the 2018 Geneva auto show with what it describes as ”one of the most interesting and eagerly awaited bikes in the new range”.

The Italian bikemaker is showing its Scrambler 1100 Special, a bike it believes will extend and complete the range and will swell the number of the already large Ducati scrambleristi community.

Ducati is part of the VW group, hence its appearance with corporate partner Audi.

The Scrambler 1100 was first shown at Eicma 2017,  announced as extending the boundaries of the Land of Joy with a big-bikes build, technology, performance, ultra-quality finishes and greater comfort.

The new 1079cc engine provides generous torque even at low revs – a key strong point on this bike, Ducati says – while the chassis set-up is as super-agile as you’d expect from a Ducati Scrambler.
