Early versions had trouble with the paint shining up where your legs rub the tank. However, they have now perfected the paintwork and it looks just great with a low sheen and a menacing demeanour.
They now call it Dark Stealth and it also features natural anodised aluminium parts.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 range includes the Scrambler 1100 PRO at $A18,400 ride away and the Sport PRO with hills suspension at $A21,100. There is no word yet n arrival and pricing for the new Dark model, but it should be cheaper.
The bikes are powered by a detuned version of the old Monster 1079cc engine. Changes from the previous 1100 model Scramblers are mainly cosmetic. The biggest difference is the 1960s-style looping throttle cable has been removed.
