2020 Ducati Scrambler 1100 Special: LEGENDS LAST FOREVER.
Introducing the 2020 Ducati Scrambler 1100 Special.
Ducati Scrambler is the essence of motorcycling and a world filled with freedom, joy and self-expression.
A bike with a unique style, a bike with thousands details. The Ducati Scrambler 1100 Special is inspired by the custom post-heritage world. It’s not just a fancy, it’s all personality.
Bigger and more muscular than ever, but always manageable and agile. Just the way Scrambler intended. Because the 1100 is not just the most powerful Scrambler ever, thanks to the Monster’s engine; there’s also a lot of technology on board and a lot of work behind it. The seat is high and wide, comfortable for two; the pace is longer, the fork is increased and renewed, just like the tank, that is very capacious. But the cycling is the same one that made Scrambler a legend. And the borders of the Land of Joy can’t be seen anymore, not even on the horizon.
DISCOVER THE LEGEND OF TOMORROW
One of the biggest icons of the 60s and 70s is reborn. A bike that fully embodies the feeling of freedom from those years: the Scrambler. And today, it gets bigger. But it’s not only the engine capacity that has grown: more technology, more premium materials, more power. All in pure Ducati style. The new Scrambler roars like never before.
Simply essential. Just a few pieces, the ones that matter. To not compromise the handling that made it famous. And only one-of- a-kin steel and aluminium finishes. To last through the age, just like the real legends.
The Scrambler® 1100 glorifies the Land of Joy spirit: a motorbike that amplifies the creative disposition of Scrambler in more mature and sophisticated lines, with a solid balance between muscle and compactness. A version that translates the freedom of expression characteristic of the Scrambler universe into superior comfort and unimaginable mastery. The Scrambler® 1100 comes with advanced outfitting and equipment. 3 Riding Modes and the Ducati Traction Control assure you maximum freedom and easy riding while the ABS Cornering Bosh and 320 mm double disc lets you enjoy the generous torque of the new 1079 cu. cm engine in total safety. Available in two colours: ’62 Yellow and Shining Black.
The Scrambler has come of age and the Land of Joy is now bigger and better.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 aims to meet the needs of even the most demanding, expert motorcyclists – but without compromising the fun, style and freedom that the Scrambler stands for. A beefier bike with a bigger engine and an even better set of standard equipmentthat lets riders upgrade without leaving the Scrambler family.
Just like in the ’60s when the Scrambler was available with three different engines (250, 350 and 450 cm3), today’s Land of Joy bikes offer three different displacements (400, 800 and 1100 cm3), resulting in a complete range with a flair for fun, iconic style, simplicity and self-expression.
Key features include a new 1079 cm3 engine, which delivers generous torque right from the bottom of the rev range, and an agile Scrambler chassis set-up that has been developed in parallel with the engine to put higher performance within reach of all riders.
With excellent pulling power and outstanding chassis geometry, the Ducati Scrambler 1100 maximises freedom and combines it with the excellent safety that comes with Bosch Cornering ABS and Traction Control: two features that go hand-in-hand with the superbly comfortable riding position specially developed for this model. On this Scrambler model the electronics package has evolved in line with Ducati tradition, maximising active safety thanks to the Bosch inertial platform.
Just like every other Ducati Scrambler bike, the 1100 is designed for boundless freedom of expression. The bike has been developed so it can be modified with ease and comes in three different versions: in addition to the Scrambler 1100, in fact, there’s the Scrambler 1100 Special, which draws its inspiration from the custom world, and the Scrambler 1100 Sport equipped with Öhlins suspension for the sportiest Scrambler riders.
With the 1100, the Ducati Scrambler sees the introduction of new, specially designed accessories and a dedicated apparel line that includes a leather jacket, a fabric jacket and an open-face helmet co-produced with Roland Sands.
Ducati Scrambler 1100 Sport
As the name implies, the Scrambler 1100 Sport takes a sportier angle. Inspired by the numerous “racer” bikes put together by Scrambler owners, this model is easily recognised by its forks and adjustable Öhlins shock. The Scrambler 1100 Sport comes in “Viper Black” with yellow tank sides and dual yellow striping down the middle of the tank and mudguards. It also features aluminium wheels with machine-finished spokes, tapered handlebars and a seat with a dedicated lining.

Taking its cue from customisation, the Scrambler 1100 Special has a decidedly “modern classic” feel thanks to black-spoked wheels, chrome exhausts and aluminium front/rear mudguards. The “Custom Grey” colour is unique to this version, as is the brushed-effect swingarm and the adjustable front fork with gold-coloured anodized sleeves. Other distinctive Scrambler 1100 Special elements include low-slung tapered handlebars and a brown seat with dedicated lining.
