Ducati’s 800cc Scrambler lineup for 2022 includes the classic Scrambler Icon, the dark Scrambler Nightshift, the off-road-ready Scrambler Desert Sled, and the all-new Scrambler Urban Motard.
Inspired by the concrete jungle, the Urban Motard has two-tone Star White Silk and Ducati GP ’19 Red livery with street-art style tank graphics.
As the “Motard” part of its name implies, the Urban Motard rolls on 17-inch spoked wheels shod with sticky Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires, and it has a high front fender, a flat seat, and side number plates.
As with other Ducati Scrambler models, the Urban Motard has a front LED DRL headlight and an LED taillight. The entire Scrambler 800 range comes standard with cornering ABS, a USB socket under the seat, and the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), which enables a smartphone to be connected to the bike via Bluetooth.
The Ducati Scrambler Urban Motard has a claimed wet weight of 432 pounds, and it’s powered by an air-cooled 803cc L-Twin with a desmodromic valve system. The engine delivers 73 horsepower at 8,250 rpm and 48.5 lb-ft of torque at 5,750 rpm (claimed, at the crank).
The engine is carried in a black tubular-steel trellis frame, and the suspension is by Kayaba suspension, with a non-adjustable 41mm inverted fork and a preload-adjustable rear shock. Triple-disc brakes include 4-piston radial front calipers with 330mm discs and a 1-piston caliper with a 245mm disc. Seat height is 31.7 inches. LCD instrumentation includes gear and fuel level indicators and an interchangeable aluminum frame.
