The 2018 Ducati Scrambler 1100 Special is one of three larger-engined models announced back in November 2017. The trio all use an updated version of the air-cooled V-twin Monster 100 EVO engine. And you will be able to see the 2018 Ducati Scrambler 1100 Special at the Geneva Motor Show. It’ll be displayed on the Audi stand from March 8-18th, 2018. Ducati is owned by Audi via Lamborghini, whilst Audi itself is owned by the Volkswagen Group. So it’ll be on show alongside some nice cars.
Alongside the appearance in Geneva, all 3 of the Ducati Scrambler 1100 bikes will be arriving in dealers from mid-March. That includes the standard Scrambler 1100 and the 1100 Sport.
The 2018 Ducati Scrambler 1100 Special may have traditional looks but it has modern electronics including Bosch Cornering ABS and Traction Control. The tank is a 15 litre tear drop design to account for the needs of the bigger engine than existing Scrambler models, and the number plate hanger is tail-mounted rather than on the swingarm like the smaller bikes.
The 2018 Ducati Scrambler 100 Special gets some upgrades from the base model. They include black spoked wheels, and chrome exhausts on the twin-silencer system. It also gets aluminium front and rear mudguards.
The Special model also gets a brown seat with quilted stitching, a brushed-effect swingarm, and it’s the only one of the range to be available in the ‘Custom Grey’ paint.
It’s a bit far to journey from the UK just for motorcycles, but if you like cars as well, Geneva might well be worth a visit. Otherwise you’ll have to make do with a couple of videos until the bikes arrive at your local Ducati dealership later this month.
