Ducati reveals Urban Motard based on Scrambler Icon

Written by Nayak

Alongside the Tribute Pro Anniversary, mentioned earlier today, Ducati has also launched the Scrambler Urban Motard edition. This motorcycle defines the brand’s prowess in modernity. Onlookers will appreciate the motorcycle’s graffiti-inspired graphics splattered on the fuel tank from the first glance. The high raised mudguard adds to the sporty appeal. Furthermore, Ducati has played around with the colours pretty well. The rear fender is done in red, with contrasting white side panels. The edition also sports 17-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli Diablo Rosso III rubbers. Other than this, the Urban Motard has a lot of similarities with the Tribute Pro Anniversary edition.

Mechanical Specifications

Both models share the mechanicals with the regular trim of the Scrambler 1100. And hence, the Urban Motard also gets the 1079cc L-Twin liquid-cooled engine. The performance output figure stands at 86bhp at 7,500rpm and 88Nm at 4,750rpm. The suspension setup consists of fully adjustable Marzocchi suspension at the front and preload and rebound adjustable Kayaba mono-shock at the rear.

For adequate braking performance, Ducati is making use of 320mm radially mounted Brembo Monobloc M4.32 callipers at the front. Meanwhile, at the rear is a single 245mm disc single-piston floating calliper. In terms of tech, Urban Motard will share the feature list of the Ducati 1100. This includes full LED lights, TFT instrument cluster, cornering ABS and traction control system, ride-by-wire, multiple riding modes and more.

India Launch Looks Likely

Ducati Scrambler is one of the most striking looking motorcycles out there. And this Urban Motard edition further enhances the outlook of the machine. A lot of motorcycling enthusiasts will indeed find this motorcycle matching their aspirations. Currently, the Icon Dark trim of the Ducati Scrambler retails at a sticker price of INR 7.99 lakh (ex-showroom). And hence we expect the Urban Motard to come at a premium over this. There has been no official update regarding the launch of this edition as of yet. But we expect both the Urban Motard and Tribute Pro to hit the showrooms sometime next year.
