The beefiest of the Ducati Scrambler lineup comes as the 2020 Scrambler 1100 Pro and 1100 Sport Pro. Each model has 1,079cc at its disposal, which gears them toward riders looking for a scrambler with a punch of power in the city (perhaps with a passenger on the newly coated seat), a jaunt down the freeway stretch, and on the twisty back roads. Both models feature traction control, Cornering ABS, and three riding modes. Key components where the 1100 Sport Pro differs include the Öhlins suspension, low-slung handlebars, café racer rearview mirrors, and matte black color scheme with side panels that include the 1100 logo.
In Cycle World’s First Look Preview of the models, contributor Bruno dePrato concluded that “The new Scrambler 1100 Pro and Sport Pro offer a little extra performance zest over the regular Scrambler 1100 version, and extra safety thanks to the additional electronics. Think of the Scrambler 1100 Sport Pro as the hip grandson of the original Ducati Monster 900.”
Interested buyers in the beefy Italian duo may also be interested in the duo from England: the Triumph Scrambler 1200 XC and Scrambler 1200 XE.
Both the 1100 Pro and 1100 Sport Pro feature revamped graphics, new exhaust and seat trim, shorter rear fender, and low plate holder. The Ducati Scrambler 1100 Sport Pro is, well, sportier with a new, narrower, and shorter handlebar with café racer-style mirrors, and Öhlins suspension. The 1100 Pro is available in the new Ocean Drive color scheme and the 1100 Sport Pro comes in matte black.
