Ducati India is all set to launch the Scrambler 1100 today. Powered by an oil and air cooled , 1079cc, L-twin motor that also powered Monster 1100, Ducati's new Scrambler 1100 is the biggest Scrambler yet. Positioned as an entry-level motorcycle, the Ducati Scrambler has made quite a name for itself as a friendly, retro-styled motorcycle globally. But the introduction of the Ducati Scrambler 1100 has changed the way the Scrambler family is perceived by enthusiasts, being more powerful, muscular and more tech-laden. The Scrambler 1100 was shown to the world at the 2017 Milan Motor Show where it made jaws drop. Design changes include bigger, underseat exhausts and a revised headlamp design to distinguish it from the smaller Scramblers. Here are the LIVE updates from the online launch.
