NZ new. Was brought as an ex demo. This 1100 is retro that has big bike performance to match its looks.
With its natural bar, seat and peg position it’s all-day comfy for taller riders and low enough for shorter ones, too. Brakes are packed with feel-good power and dual-purpose Pirelli MT60 RS tyres have gluey wet and dry grip.
There’s an extra disc up front, gripped by Brembo four-piston radial calipers, a large 15-litre tank, a wide (120/70 x 18) front tyre and chunky forks, up from 41mm to 45mm diameter. With potential to customise.
The Scrambler’s electronic rider aids are the most advanced of any retro, thanks the Ducati’s Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit calling the shots. That means ABS, traction control and even the self-cancelling LED indicators are lean-sensitive, which isn’t just clever, it all works superbly, too.
Traction control is a useful safety blanket to have, especially in the rain, but despite it being there ready in the background, the Scrambler 1100 has so much mechanical grip and poise it’s rarely called into action.
There are three riding modes with varying levels of traction control (which also can be adjusted separately) and throttle responses. The modes are renamed Active, Journey and City (from say, the usual: Sport, Touring and Urban). All have full power, except City, which clips the motor’s output to 74bhp.
