According to Mr Bipul Chandra, MD, Ducati India, the original livery of the all-new Urban Motard bike is inspired by the world of street art and metropolitan graffiti. Design-wise, it sports a signature high-mounted mudguard with red finishing on the front. The fuel tank flaunts graffiti graphics on a white and red base. Other features of the motorcycle include a round headlamp, a flat seat and a low aluminium handlebar, which give it a slightly retro look.
The Scrambler 800 Urban Motard comes equipped with LED headlights, LED DRLs, taillights, turn indicators, an LCD instrument cluster with gear and fuel level indications, a USB-charging port and a storage compartment under the seat. The bike features the Ducati Multimedia System, which connects it with the user’s smartphone via Bluetooth.
The Urban Motard has a trellis frame structure with black tubular steel, which is suspended on 41mm Kayaba USD forks at the front and a Kayaba mono-shock at the rear. Anchorage duties are handled by a single 330mm disc at the front and a 245mm disc at the rear. This is aided by a dual-channel and a Bosch cornering ABS, which the motorbike gets as standard. The Ducati Scrambler 800 Urban Motard comes riding on Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tyres, a 120/70 at the front and a 180/55 at the rear.
