2019 Ducati Scrambler 1100 – Features

2019 Ducati Scrambler 1100


As a tribute to the “Land of Joy” attitude, the Scrambler 1100 is necessary, mature, and well-thought-out. To provide exceptional rider comfort and unmatched handling, Ducati Scrambler models are more significant than the rest of the company’s Scrambler line.

Like the 320 mm twin front brake discs, the revised fork, and rear shock absorber indicate a leap forward in performance and mature aesthetics.

The Scrambler 1100’s core design is enhanced with a sleekly contoured high-performance swingarm. With original materials like steel and aluminum, quality-conscious finishing is elevated to new levels of excellence.

As a result of careful consideration and the need for simplicity, there are fewer covers and other plastic components.

This Scrambler variant is instantly recognized thanks to a more robust, beefier teardrop tank and adjustable aluminum side panels that are vintage yet have a new line. A focus on aesthetics has allowed for an increase in size without sacrificing distinctive brand elements.

Unlike the Scrambler 800, the seat of the Triumph Bonneville is more generously constructed to give the rider and passenger the greatest in comfort. This seat has a gorgeous, stitched cover and an embroidered Ducati logo on the back.

Its twin tailpipes give the Scrambler 1100 a strong, immediately recognizable silhouette, while the two silencers blend seamlessly with the bike’s tail and high plate holder.

The Scrambler brand is all about self-expression. Thus the rear subframe is detached from the chassis so that customization is easy. The subframe has a machine-finished aluminum trim that matches the subframe’s metal construction. There are two die-cast aluminum supports holding the front mudguard in place while the rear one has LED indicators.

The Scrambler 1100’s circular headlamp is another noteworthy feature. All Ducati Scrambler models have the same glass parabola, but the new aluminum rim makes it even better. The Ducati emblem is prominently displayed on an aluminum X-grille mounted within. When the Scrambler 1100’s DRL (Daytime Running Light) system is divided by the grille, the four distinctive Land of Joy light segments result.

As seen on other Scrambler motorcycles, a two-piece instrument panel has been designed: a traditional round part and an extra oval section to show a wider variety of information.

The Ducati Scrambler 1100 has been precisely developed down to the very last detail in every aspect of its construction. Adding a painted aluminum logo is a nice finishing touch. Machine.

The emblem on the spark plug covers matches the final aluminum bar plugs in the headlamp assembly.

Designed for simple repair or customization, the rear brake lever is composed of aluminum, like the clutch lever. Additionally, the Scrambler 1100 has machine-finished wheel spokes and aluminum airbox covers.


With a 1079cc L-twin, two-valve engine, the Ducati Scrambler 1100 is Euro 4 compatible. The 98 mm bore and 71.5 mm stroke is Scrambler-style modifications of the Monster 1100 engine. Fluid acceleration throughout the rpm range and excellent handling are now top priorities in the engine’s re-design. There are light aluminum coverings on the clutch and alternator of the Desmodue engine on the Ducati Scrambler 1100. The two belt covers, machine-finished to add a little flare, are also aluminum.

With a 55 mm entire Ride by Wire throttle body and two sub-butterfly injectors, the Ducati Scrambler 1100’s dual cylinder Desmodue engine provides smooth power delivery and precise control of the fuel mix that is aspirated into the cylinders. Additionally, each cylinder has dual spark plugs in addition to the primary system.

The 16° valve overlap angle makes excellent pulling power accessible to everyone. The Ducati Scrambler L-twin has a maximum power output of 86 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and a maximum torque output of 88.4 Nm at 4,750 rpm thanks to these solutions. In addition, the wet multi-plate type of clutch with hydraulic control is used in the 6-speed gearbox. During downshifts, the grip includes a servo-assisted slipper function that prevents the rear wheels from becoming unstable.

Desmo delight

Desmo valve closure system, which has given Ducati a household name in motorcycling throughout the globe, is another legendary motorcycle model. These valves are closed by a method similar to the one used to open them to be completed positively and accurately. As a result, the word desmodromic was coined.

Control mechanisms that may operate in both directions (e.g., opening and closing) are referred to as demons and dromos, which are Greek terms for “link” and “stroke” (closure or return).

It is true, however, that the desmodromic idea has been around for some time in the motorcycle and automobile sectors. It made its debut in several guises around the 20th century. First, Fabio Taglioni launched Ducati on the desmodromic route with the Grand Prix 125, which featured three overhead camshafts, powered by a vertical shaft and a bevel gear, and was the first bike to employ the technology.

From that point on, the Desmo 350 Mark 3 was the first model equipped with a standard desmodromic timing system. As a testament to the idea’s validity, this ground-breaking motorbike used the same timing mechanism as modern 2-valve twin cylinder motors, such as the Ducati Scrambler. The technology is used on all Ducati models, including the Superbikes and Desmosedici MotoGP motorcycles from Ducati Corse.


The Trellis steel twin upper spar frame is new on the Ducati Scrambler 1100. To complete the Ducati Scrambler’s engine-hugging chassis, a rear aluminum subframe must be used. At 24.5° steering head angle and 110 mm fork yoke offset, this bike’s agility excels in city traffic and Alpine hairpins. Aluminum fork yokes have a larger inter-fork clearance than Scrambler 800 yokes. Because of Scrambler’s 1,544″ wheelbase and broad handlebars, they are navigating an obstacle course in an urban environment has never been easier. The Scrambler 1100 boasts a unique riding posture because of the bike’s increased size: the seat-foot peg gap is more significant, and the handlebars are lower and farther front than on the 800 models.

The teardrop-shaped steel fuel tank can contain 15 liters of gasoline. Scrambler 1100 boasts a suitable frame and chassis geometry that provides a relaxing and entertaining ride. However, despite the bike’s increased size and performance, the Scrambler 1100 remains a joy to ride on city streets and highways.


Suspension components on the Ducati Scrambler 1100 Sport include upside-down 45 mm forks and a rear shock that can be adjusted for spring preload and rebound dampening. Both have 150 mm of wheel travel, which ensures that the tires follow the ground no matter where you ride, whether it’s on city streets or easy off-road trails. For the Ducati Scrambler 1100, the combination of comfort and performance sets it apart from the others.

Wheels and tires

Standard equipment on the Scrambler 1100 includes brand-new aluminum machine-finished 10-spoke wheels, clearly inspired by flat-track designs. The style harkens back to the days of wheel hubs with thin, crisscrossed spokes. The 3.5-inch-wide 18-inch-long front wheel and the 5.5-inch-wide 17-inch-long rear wheel are lightweight constructions. Pirelli MT60 RS 120/80 ZR18 and 180/55 ZR17 tires are used at the front and back, respectively. The front tire for the Ducati Scrambler 1100 has been developed specifically by Pirelli.
