Ducati Australia will release its new Scrambler 1100 Pro, and Sport Pro variants in September of this year, priced from $18,400 rideaway and $21,100 rideaway, respectively.
The Pro and Sport Pro build on the current line-up, carrying over the 1079cc L-twin motor borrowed from the previous Monster naked bike, which in this case is tuned to produce 63kW and 88Nm.
New is a two-tone colour scheme, a right-side dual tailpipe and low-slung license plate holder. The bike also gains a new headlight design which features an ‘X’ in its centre as a nod to the protective tape used on old racebikes.
Meanwhile, the Sport Pro gains full Ohlins suspension, low handlebars with bar-end mirrors, a matte-black colour scheme and a painted 1100 logo on the tank.
Both grades also benefit from a strong electronics suite as standard, with Ducati Traction Control (DCT), lean-angle-sensitive cornering ABS and three rider modes dubbed Active, Journey and City.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 Pro is exclusively available in a two-tone Ocean Drive colour scheme, while the uprated Sport Pro is available in Matt Black.
