- Ducati Scrambler 1100 Special on Audi Geneva stand
- Ducati sound, plenty torque, high-quality components
- Expected to be with dealers starting mid-March
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.
Its electronics package was also evolved as per Ducati tradition, ”enhancing ridability and maximising active safety with anti-lock brakes, and cornering and traction control.
Three versions are are in the catalogue: Ducati Scrambler 1100, Ducati Scrambler 1100 Special (pictured) and Ducati Scrambler 1100 Sport.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 will be with European dealers from mid-March.
