The Scrambler 1100 Sport Pro will not have a successor. Goodbye to the most performance model

At the end of the year, the Scrambler 1100 Sport Pro will disappear from dealerships. The reason is the introduction of the Euro5+ environmental regulation. The general director of Ducati in the United Kingdom, Fabrizio Cazzolihas stated that any changes to the range are a result of “Regular and continuous product updates and future developments«.

It should be noted that 1100 has been an atypical case in the family Scrambler. In fact, it has not shared the same success in the market as its smaller displacement brothers.

What about the Scrambler range?

As we indicated at the beginning, the brand has confirmed that the entire 803 cc range will comply with the new emissions standards. The Euro5+ standards focus on the effectiveness of a motorcycle's catalyst, considering the time required to reach the effective temperature and the durability of the catalysts over the life of the motorcycle.

In addition to requiring more efficient exhaust systems, the effectiveness of catalysts will need to be evaluated over time, and an electronic monitoring system through the motorcycle's ECU will be required.

After the world presentation of two prototypes Scrambler at the recent Bike Shed Moto Show in London, motorcycles that we talked about, the directors of Ducati UK reported that we could see a production bike in the future, although not immediately.

Our goal was to reinterpret the Scrambler model and take it in a different direction. Being such a flexible base, it is ideal for this type of experiments“explained the chief designer of Ducati, Andrea Amato. “We were inspired by 60s fashion and two main ideas emerged. One was a kind of rebellious adventurer, which we expressed with the RR241, and the other was the cafe racer, iconic for its sportiness, sophistication and elegance.”.

The general director of Ducati in the United Kingdom, Fabrizio Cazzolicommented: “The cafe racer seems to be the one that generates the most interest”. Both machines are built on the technical basis of the current range Scrambler, using the same Desmodue 803cc air-cooled V-twin engine and tubular steel chassis as the Nightshift, Icon and Full Throttle models. However, bringing either of these two models to production is not guaranteed and could take up to two years.

Amato He added: “I think they have great potential because the direction is very different. People who grew up dreaming about motorcycles in the '60s and '70s are probably drawn to the cafe racer, which is also a great option for women. It is sensual, while the RR241 is more masculine. There are two types of attractions”.

Regarding its possible arrival at dealerships, Cazzoli commented: “It's too early to say if they will eventually hit the market, but it's important to understand what the audience is saying and if there's strong interest, we'll consider it.”. He also noted that there is unlikely to be a range expansion Scrambler in the near future: “In the past I think we went too far. It was not practical to have so many motorcycles”. Despite this, the current range Scrambler remains a strong pillar for the Bologna brand.

As we have been able to learn, some thinking heads in Ducati are more open to the idea of ​​adding a new Scrambler. The Marketing and Communications Manager, Patrizia Cianettisaid: “The Scrambler brand can surely support a wider range. He has the values, the strength and the attractiveness. We love to experiment and listen to customers, so who knows what the future holds.”.
