Find out more about the Ducati Scrambler Urban Motard
While some would say jammers and bikers are separate motorcycle designs, there is certainly some overlap. The Scramber Urban Motard fits perfectly into this overlap area and offers the best of both. Bikers are generally derived from smaller off-road motorcycles and have road tires for competition. Scramblers have always been bikes built for the desert with a raised exhaust to increase ground clearance and cornering. The Scrambler Urban Motard mixes these concepts together and features a bike that’s bigger than an average biker, but more street-oriented than a scrambler. The result is a bike that can handle the daily commute around town while doing so in an exhilarating way.
The Scrambler Urban Motard is fitted with an 803cc L-twin engine (otherwise known as V-twin) with iconic Ducati desmodromic valves. The engine puts out 73 horsepower and 48.5 lb-ft of torque, making it an invigorating, but not intimidating ride. Ducati also fitted this bike with 17 inch spoked wheels, a high front fender, a flat saddle and side number plates. These features are all biker-inspired and offer riders something unique within the Ducati Scrambler range. The Urban Motard will be available from April 2022 at an MSRP of $ 11,695.
Paying homage to the past with the Scrambler 1100 Tribute PRO
Ducati designed its other new Scrambler to honor the company’s esteemed heritage. The Italian automaker introduced an air-cooled twin-cylinder engine on its motorcycles in 1971. Ducati built the Scramber 1100 Tribute PRO with this story in mind. Equipped with a 1,079cc engine that produces 86 hp and 66.5 ft-lbs of torque, the Scrambler 1100 Tribute PRO emphasizes V-twin performance. And to handle that engine, the bike comes standard. with three drive modes, each representing different levels of power and traction control. In addition, as a modern classic, the bike is fitted with the special “Giallo Ocra” livery which further alludes to Ducati’s past. Yet beneath that vintage look is a motorcycle with innovative cornering ABS and the Ducati multimedia system for phone connectivity. The Scrambler 1100 Tribute PRO will be available in March 2022 at an MSRP of $ 13,995.
This Scrambler line-up growth announcement illustrates Ducati’s confidence in these bikes, as they definitely doubled in this popular segment with the release of the Scrambler Urban Motard and Scrambler 1100 Tribute PRO.
The bike receives the same Fasthouse livery that is used in the Mint 400.
