Ducati SA to launch Scrambler 1100 at SA Bike Festival
JHB public will get their first chance to see the big daddy Scrambler at SABF from 25-27 May
Cape Town will host a launch in the CT dealership on 19 May
Ducati now have a whole Scrambler family – we’ve already seen and adopted the 400cc Sixty2 and the 800 models, and now we are opening our doors to the big daddy version, the 1100.
Donovan Fourie went to the World Launch of this new model in Lisbon, Portugal, and was suitably impressed: “With the 1100, Ducati have blurred the line in their showroom slightly, creating a less than clear distinction between the fun-crazed yellow section on one end, and the speed-freak red machines on the other. The 1100 has the motor and look to stir the demon in our soul, but the size and feel to not leave us fearing for our lives. It is has maintained the Scrambler theme and philosophy, but has Ducati blood running through its veins. It encompasses everything Bologna has to offer in one joyous package.”

There will be three models – the Standard (in yellow and black) on sale for R196,900, the Special with spoked wheels and more class for R213,900 and the Sport with Ohlins suspension and a Termignoni exhaust for R227,900.
All four variations will be on display at the SA Bike Festival at Kyalami on the Ducati stand that, this year, will upstairs in the Nigel Mansell Conference Centre, which is the first room in the upstairs area when you turn left after the entrance bridge.
Also on display will be the full assortment of 2018 Ducatis, including the mighty new Panigale V4, The Multistrada 1260, the Monster 821 and the Panigale 959 Corse. See below for a gallery of all these models.
Apart from new models, there will be a range of Ducati apparel on sale at special show prices.
Tickets for the festival are available from their website.
