Ducati has launched the Scrambler 1100 Tribute Pro at Rs 12.89 lakh (ex-showroom, India), pre-bookings for which had opened at the beginning of the year.
86hp, 88Nm, 1,079cc air-cooled L-twin
18-inch/17-inch wire-spoke wheels
Middle child in the Scrambler 1100 line-up
The Tribute Pro is a special edition in the Scrambler 1100 line-up, and differentiates itself with retro design elements. Touches like the painted tank panels featuring old-school Ducati logos and the brown seat help give it a more rustic look than the Scrambler 1100 Dark Pro, the base model in the Scrambler 1100 line-up. Also adding to the old-school look are black wire-spoke wheels, in contrast to the identically sized (18-inch/17-inch) alloy units seen on the Dark Pro.
Its existence commemorates the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the air-cooled twin-cylinder engine on a Ducati, seen for the first time in 1971 on the 750 GT.
The changes on the Tribute Pro come at quite a significant cost over the Dark Pro, which retails for Rs 10.99 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Both bikes share the same 1,079cc, air-cooled L-twin motor that features 2-valves per cylinder. This relatively basic motor manages a humble 86hp and 88Nm, but this being a Ducati, it has a well-equipped electronics suite: three riding modes (each with an associated power mode), traction control and cornering ABS.
