Ducati is set to launch its second BS6 offering for the Indian market in the form of the Scrambler 1100. The company has recently released the teaser video of the new BS6 compliant Ducati Scrambler 1100 range on its social media handles. Going by the teaser, the bike doesn’t look like the smaller Ducati Scrambler 800 range and hence, it is quite obvious that Ducati India is gearing up for something bigger. The Scrambler 1100 is available in two variants globally namely Sport and Sport Pro and both these trims shall make their way to India. The new Euro 5 compliant Ducati Scrambler 1100 range that was launched globally a few months back will replace the BS4 Scrambler 1100 range here that includes the standard 1100, 1100 Special and 1100 Sport. The new model gets revised graphics and paint schemes along with a new twin exhaust setup and also a new seat.

Powering the BS6 Ducati Scrambler 1100 is a BS6/Euro 5 compliant 1,079cc air-cooled, L-twin motor mated to a six-speed transmission system, churning out 85 hp of power and 88.4 Nm of torque.
