The new Ducati Scrambler Urban Motard is costlier than the base Scrambler Icon Dark’s price by Rs. 3.11 lakhs/-
After teasing for a while, Ducati India has now launched the Scrambler Urban Motard for a price tag of Rs. 11.49 lakhs (ex-showroom). The performance bike can now be purchased at all Ducati dealerships spread across the country.
The Ducati Scrambler Urban Motard made its global debut last year along with the bigger 1100 Tribute Pro. It features a graffiti paint job that combines Star Silk White and Ducati GP ’19 Red in energetic graphics.
While the Tribute Pro gets the bigger 1079 cc L-twin Desmodromic distribution engine, the Urban Motard features the smaller 803 cc mill from the entry-level Scrambler Icon Dark. The Italian maker has brought the same international-spec version here.
The smaller Desmodromic distribution engine produces 73 HP at 8250 RPM and 66.2 Nm at 5750 RPM. It’s mated to a 6-speed transmission via a hydraulically controlled slipper and self-servo wet multi-plate clutch.
The engine sits on a steel trellis frame with Kayaba USDs upfront and pre-load adjust mono-shock at the rear. There’s 17-inch spoke wheel at the front wrapped with 120-section Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyre while the rear gets the same wheel and tyre albeit much broader.
The braking duties are carried out by 330 mm disc at the front while the rear gets 245 mm unit. The brakes get cornering-ABS functionality. While the bike a tad heavier tipping the scales at 196 kg, the seat height of 805 mm seems quite reasonable.
Ducati is offering a host of equipment including steel tank with interchangeable aluminium side panels, LED headlight, tail light, and turn indicators, LCD instrument cluster with gear and fuel level indications, under-seat storage compartment with USB socket, etc.
The highlights unique to the Urban Motard are low variable section aluminum handlebar, custom flat seat, high front mudguard, side number plates, and the custom graphics on tank / side panels. Further, the scrambler gets a host of accessories.
The Ducati Scrambler Urban Motard competes with the Triumph Street Scrambler, BMW R nineT Scrambler, Harley Davidson Sportster S, and the likes. It’s costlier than the base Scrambler Icon Dark by Rs. 3.11 lakhs/-.
