Fifty years ago, Ducati introduced its first air-cooled twin-cylinder engine, on the 1971 Ducati 750 GT. The new 2022 Ducati Scrambler 1100 Tribute Pro pays homage to this milestone with special livery and a 1,079cc air-cooled L-Twin that makes a claimed 86 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 66.5 lb-ft of torque at 4,750 rpm.
The Scrambler 1100 Tribute Pro wears striking “Giallo Ocra” yellow paint, which was used on the 1972 450 Desmo Mono and 750 Sport. The sides of the fuel tank feature the iconic 1970s-era Ducati logo that was designed by Giugiaro, and the same font is used to spell “Scrambler” on the top of the tank. Other styling details include black spoked wheels, round mirrors, and a brown seat with special stitching.
Though honoring the past, the Tribute edition has the modern features found in Ducati’s Scrambler 1100 Pro line, including three riding modes, multi-level traction control, cornering ABS, a headlight with a distinctive LED ring, and the Ducati Multimedia System. There’s a USB socket for mobile phone charging under the seat.
The 2022 Ducati Scrambler 1100 Tribute Pro has a steel trellis frame, an aluminum subframe, a cast aluminum swingarm, and spoked wheels (18-inch front, 17-inch rear) shod with Pirelli MT60 RS tires. Suspension includes a fully adjustable 45mm inverted Marzocchi fork and an adjustable Kayaba shock with a progressive linkage. The front brakes are radial-mount monoblock Brembo M4.32 calipers squeezing 320mm discs.
Pricing starts at $13,995.
