Fans of Ducati's subbrand, Scrambler, have new reason to return to the Land of Joy as the Bologna-based manufacturer introduces two new models for 2022. These are the Scrambler 1100 Tribute Pro and Urban Motard.
Ducati Scrambler 1100 Tribute Pro
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 Tribute Pro was created to pay homage to the history of the air-cooled twin-cylinder engine, fifty years after it was first introduced on a Ducati, back in 1971.
Created with modern-classic bike lovers and motorcycle history enthusiasts in mind, the 1100 Tribute pays homage to the history and achievements of the Borgo Panigale motorcycle company. For this bike, the Centro Stile Ducati was inspired by iconic Ducati elements of the 1970s, such as the special "Giallo Ocra" livery, the Ducati logo of the time designed by Giugiaro, and the wire spoked wheels, which are black and integrate perfectly with the tones of the celebratory livery. Further distinctive stylistic details are represented by the circular rear-view mirrors and the brown seat with dedicated stitching.
From a technical point of view, the bike has the characteristics of the Ducati Scrambler 1100 Pro family. It has an iconic and at the same time original design, an agile chassis and a 1,079 cc engine that delivers 88 Ps of power at 7,500 rpm and a torque value of 90 Nm at 4,750 rpm, characterized by generous torque right from low revs.
The Ducati Scrambler 1100 Tribute Pro comes standard with three Riding Modes, each associated with different power modes and various levels of Ducati Traction Control (DTC). Furthermore, thanks to the front headlight with LED light guide, the bike is always visible and recognizable even during the day.
Ducati Scrambler Urban Motard
New for 2022 is the Ducati Scrambler Urban Motard – a motorcycle created for the city environment with a combination of style, sportiness, and fun.
The name chosen for this latest version immediately evokes the characteristic atmosphere of large cities and is aimed at all those who live in the city with energy and enthusiasm. The Centro Stile Ducati has interpreted these concepts through the proposal of a new livery that combines Star White Silk and Ducati GP '19 Red in energetic graphics, inspired by the world of street art and metropolitan graffiti.
The Ducati Scrambler Urban Motard is powered by the 803 cc L-twin engine with desmodromic distribution, which delivers 75 Ps of power at 8,250 rpm and 66 Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm, offering brilliant performance that never becomes intimidating for the rider, guaranteeing great agility in city traffic and fun on itineraries full of curves.
The reference to the Motard world is clear in the choice of elements such as the 17-inch wire-spoked wheels, the high front mudguard, the flat seat, and the side number plates, which are perfectly integrated into the Ducati Scrambler design.
The Urban Motard is also equipped with a headlight with LED DRLs, a hallmark of all Ducati Scrambler models, which is combined with the rear light with full LED diffusion technology, both as standard.
As for safety, all Ducati and Scrambler Ducati models come with Cornering ABS, which guarantees high levels of safety even when braking with the bike at an angle. This is in addition to the already standard ABS and traction control.
The models are also designed for the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), which enables a smartphone to be connected to the bike via Bluetooth, while the USB socket positioned under the seat is standard.
The new Ducati Scrambler Urban Motard joins the 800cc range, alongside the Ducati Scrambler Icon, Ducati Scrambler Icon Dark, Ducati Scrambler Nightshift and Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled models. The Ducati Scrambler 1100 Tribute Pro is part of the top-of-the-line Scrambler family, together with the Ducati Scrambler 1100 Dark Pro and Ducati Scrambler 1100 Sport Pro models.
