Meet the all-new 2020 Ducati Scrambler 1100 twins - the Pro and the Sport Pro.
Both get a new exhaust, shorter rear mudguard, an improved seat and a lower numberplate holder as well as new colourschemes and graphics.
The air-cooled V-twin now meets Euro5 regulations, but it makes the same 85bhp and 65ftlb torque as the current models. It also uses the same steel trellis frame, but both come with a right-side twin pipe and a low-slung plate-holder as seen on the Diavel.
It seems a shame that Ducati haven’t taken this opportunity to close the gap on some of its more powerful rivals; such as the 110bhp BMW R nineT.
The Sport Pro gets top-notch Ohlins suspension, lower handlebars and café racer-style mirrors and comes in a matt black paintjob while the Pro sports an 'Ocean Drive' scheme.
Both bikes get a funky headlight with a black metal X built into the internals. It’s meant to mirror the trend of the '70s to tape over headlights and go racing. It’s a neat touch.
The new models join the stock 1100 Scrambler and 1100 Special. There’s also an 1100 Sport currently in the range, but it’s not clear if that will continue with the arrival of its two blinged-up brothers.
Both new Scramblers come with Ducati’s traction control system, although the Italian firm claims they have been tweaked to suit each machine’s style and purpose. There’s also cornering ABS and three standard riding modes (Active, Journey and City).
Both bikes should be available from the end of March although no prices have yet been confirmed. The current Scrambler 1100 Sport is £12,395, so we’d expect the Sport Pro to be similar, with the Pro weighing in at around £11,500.
MCN will be among the first to ride this new soft-roader, so keep an eye out for the 2020 Ducati Scrambler 1100 Pro and Sport Pro reviews coming soon.
