The second of six digital launches sees the Bologna manufacturer launch two new Scrambler models, the Tribute PRO and the Urban Motard, with 1100cc and 800cc engines respectively.
Ducati Scrambler Tribute PRO and Urban Motard Models Announced
Over the next couple of months, Ducati is launching new models in six online presentations. The first gave us the new Multistrada V2, replacing the Multistrada 950. The second concentrated on the Scrambler sub brand and added two new models bringing the tally of Scrambler models up to 10.
The Scrambler Tribute PRO pays homage to Ducati’s first V-Twin motorcycle, which was launched in 1971. Then, it had a cylinder capacity of 750cc and now it is built around the 1100 (actually 1079cc) air-cooled motor, which pumps out 86bhp.
The Scrambler 1100 PRO tips its hat to that first bike by wearing ’Giallo Ocra’ yellow paint and the iconic Giugiaro-designed Ducati logo and typeface, possibly the best of all Ducati logos. The seat is a dark tan colour, the trellis frame is black and the wheels are wire spoked.
As with the other three models in the PRO line-up, the Tribute has the usual bells and whistles, including riding modes and Ducati Traction Control along with the single round headlight with LED inserts.
The Ducati Scrambler Urban Motard is aimed at a younger demographic. Ducati calls the styling a ’contemporary refresh’ with cues taken from the Ducati Hypermotard.
The red and white livery is a nod to the original Marlboro-sponsored Ducati MotoGP race bikes, while it borrows the side-mounted number plate panel, flat seat and beaked front mudguard from other Scrambler models. The Urban Motard is powered by the73bhp, 803cc version of the V-Twin and claims to have some off-road ability, while being light and nimble in the urban jungle.
The 1100cc model comes with twin front discs, while the 800cc model has a single front disc set up.
With both models coming with Ducati Multimedia System, you can pair your smartphone with the bike via the clocks and there is a USB socket under the seat.
No word on pricing yet, but they should be in showrooms in early 2022.
The next episode in the series will air on the 28th October and is titled Rule All Mountains. If we are reading that right, it will probably involve the Multistrada Enduro adventure bike. We’ll just have to wait for confirmation.
