New Scrambler on the way? So it seems...

    The Scrambler Ducati models started out as a bid to capture the budding crop of millennial riders, who eschew from the current crop of values and segments that prop-up the motorcycle industry.

    The Scrambler has become more for Ducati though, as it has given the Italian brand two things: 1) a pathway to sell more classic and affordable motorcycles, and 2) a pathway from being a pure on-street brand. This makes the Scrambler line very important to Bologna.

    For the past few months now, we have been hearing about the next model(s) to come for the Scrambler Ducati line (you can hear more about it on this episode of the Two Enthusiasts Podcast, by the way), and now we are seeing our first glimpse of those machines.

    Recent spy shots have been circling the internet this week, and they give us our best glimpse of what to expect from Ducati at the upcoming motorcycle trade shows.

    I’m talking about the “Scrambler 1100 Enduro” – as the press is calling it – which will slot in above the Ducati Scrambler “800” bike, and offer more off-road prowess to the Scrambler name.

    From the spy photos, we can see that the new Scrambler model has upside-down forks, which appear to have a longer length of travel than on the other models. The front wire-spoked wheel also looks bigger too – certainly a 19″ hoop, but possibly a 21″ wheel – for true off-roadability (we’re making that a word).

    We have had a number of hints from Ducati that the company would use its 1,078cc air-cooled v-twin engine in a model, which would make sense for this higher-spec machine, and help differentiate it from the 803cc models. This would also give a logical progression to the Scrambler Ducati line, in terms of engine displacement.

    Judging from the longer suspension, and more robust looking chassis package, we can expect Ducati to position this new model as a more off-road capable model – another point our sources have suggested from Ducati – and help ease Ducati into a lineup that features on-road and dual-sport models.

    The Italian brand has made good in-roads to the dual-sport market with its Scrambler line and last year’s debut of the Ducati Multistrada 1200 Enduro. With the latter commanding a $21,000+ price tag though, a more affordable model is needed for the Italian brand.

    As such, the budget-conscious Scrambler line fits the bill quite well, and could continue Ducati’s path of producing affordable, low-tech, and fun motorcycles for the riding masses.

    It’s always hard to judge a bike by its spy shots, but the Ducati Scrambler 1100 Enduro will likely be an important model for Ducati. So, it will be interesting to se what the finished machine looks like – we would expect it to debut at INTERMOT or EICMA later this fall.

    Is it just me, but that bike appears to have a radiator... Surprised that wasn't picked up.

    Little bit disappointed. I'm hoping there is a slightly more road focused variant launched along side, much like the FT is to the Urban Enduro now.

    Would be great to see a more road oriented model, but Ducati may just point to the Hypermotard as the more everyday road-type bike.

    Personally, I really like the look of this spy shot! Hoping it comes out looking much less impressive though, since I JUST picked up my Scrambler Classic. :D I don't need bike lust so soon after a purchase... But really, I love my Classic and if it gained a 1100cc big brother in the future I can't see it being a bad thing.

    I think you might be mistaking the oil cooler for the radiator?

    Most likely. It just looked like the cowl protruding from the left side (where our oil cooler is) was now also sticking out on the right side as well.

    Could be mistaken. Just theorising.

    I think that's the oil cooler Joooooooosh. It's got the two stainless braided ports at the bottom and the mounting brackets at bottom and top. Interested to see how this pans out. I almost went the BMW RNineT route but opted for the Classic. This would be tough not to upgrade to after a model year or so.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this. It will be interesting to see the torque / hp curve.

    Scrambler Cafe Racer (what a name BTW :D ) teaser photo, slightly edited by me. Different tires, handlebars and black Termignoni Exhaust is what you can see first.

    I'm excited about this! I don't recognise that tyre, I'm going to guess Pirelli are doing a new sporty street tyre in the 18" size. What I've been waiting for.
    Also, a OEM sporty handlebar. Clip on style but a great balance with comfort. Might help with a bit of wind at high speed. Wait I've been waiting for.

    Only disappointment, it looks like the cafe racer is just a styling exercise and base bike is still the same.

    Will be good to see this, but I bet it's nothing different to what people are doing to the current models.
    More fun to build your own, but then I like to tinker, some don't or can't so I guess there should be a market.
    And Joooooooosh, you can get something for your wind problem from the pharmacy....

    Nice Dave, keeping it reeeeal classy :p

    I wouldn't consider buying the bike but hopefully the handlebars will be cool. Clip on style but on risers, not as low as real clip-ons. Much like the new Triumph Thruxton R. It has a brilliant riding position as standard!

    Those mirrors can f*ck right off for me!

    Never understood why those types of mirrors are fitted to bikes, bikes that actually get ridden I mean. They just limit the ability to filter through traffic.
