Ducati staged the first public appearance of its two, top-of-the-line Scrambler 1100 PRO models at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California, for students, teachers, journalists, fans, and influencers. The move also marks the start of a design challenge posed to students of the lauded college, which is to design the Scrambler of the future. Students will submit designs directly to Ducati’s design team, and the winning student will receive an internship at the Ducati Design Center in Borgo Panigale, Italy.

Design students at ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California, got an in-depth look at both Scrambler PRO 1100 models before embarking on a challenge to design the Scrambler of the future.

Ducati designer Jeremy Faraud, considered the “father” of the Scrambler 1100, was on hand to make the announcement, alongside world-renowned soccer icon and motorcycle enthusiast Alessandro Del Piero.

Faraud also led a design lecture, allowing those in attendance to dig deep into the Scrambler 1100 PRO and 1100 Sport PRO. Ducati plans to hold a second event in Bologna this March.

The Ducati Scrambler 1100 Sport PRO will be available in late March, and will start at $15,495.

Fresh eyes on the platform could promise some interesting developments to the line in the coming years. The PRO and Sport PRO are currently the most exclusive in the Scrambler line and expected to be in dealerships at the end of March.

The PRO makes use of a newly designed steel trellis frame and aluminum subframe, all in black. The new dual tail pipe runs along the right side of the bike and the rear end was styled up with a revised plate holder. It also sports a new two-tone Ocean Drive colorway.

The PRO 1100 gets some minor upgrades, while the Sport PRO comes packing more performance parts.
