Here is the new entry point into the Scrambler lineup!
Ducati has launched a new entry-level model into the Scrambler lineup- Ducati Scrambler Urban Motard 800, priced at Rs 11.49 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Targeted at the urban dwellers, the Scrambler Urban Motard joins Ducati’s vast lineup of Scrambler models consisting of Icon, Icon Dark, Nightshift, and Desert Sled. The new model gets an 800cc engine, and sits well below the 1100 cc Scrambler lineup which consists of models like Sport Pro, Dark Pro, and Tribute Pro.

Ducati Scrambler Urban Motard: Design And Features
The overall design gets all signature Scrambler cues. There is a sporty-looking high-mounted beak-like front mudguard in Red, that could instantly remind you of the Hypermotard. The fuel tank looks unmistakeably Scrambler-ish and gets decals inspired by street Graffiti. The livery (Star Silk White + Ducati GP 2019 Red + graffiti decals) as such has a great influence gone into it, of street art and urban graffiti. Like all other Scrambler models, the Urban Motard also features a flat seat, low Aluminium handlebar, and side number plate. The round LED headlamp keeps the retro character safe. The motorcycle rides on 17-inch wire-spoked wheels, which further adds to its Scrambler character. These get Pirelli Diablo Rosso III rubber with 120/70 section at the front and 180/55 at the rear. The Scrambler Urban Motard has a dry weight of 180 kilograms and 805 mm seat height- could thus be fairly nimble.
Key features on the Scrambler Urban Motard 800 include an LCD instrument cluster with a host of indications, information, and warnings on offer, Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), USB charging point, and under-seat storage.
