Ducati add new Urban Motard and 1100 Tribute Pro models to 2022 retro Scrambler line-up

1 of 1

Ducati have added to their already extensive retro Scrambler line-up for 2022 - introducing the seventies-inspired 1100 Tribute Pro and the beaky, road-focussed Urban Motard.  

Starting with the larger of the two machines, the minimalist 1100 Tribute Pro will start from £11,995 and has been released in recognition of 50 years of air-cooled Ducati twins, which first appeared on Bologna-built bikes back in 1971.

Finished in a striking yellow livery, reminiscent of the beautiful 750 Sport model of the 1970s, the Tribute Pro features the Ducati logo of the day across the petrol tank, with black spoked wheels completing the look.

Although it may be designed to look like a bike from five decades ago, it’s thoroughly modern underneath, featuring the same spec as the £11,385 Scrambler 1100 Pro which arrived back in 2020.

That means you get three riding modes – each offering a differing amount of power and intervention from the traction control system. Other touches include LED lighting and twin radial Brembo calipers - complete with cornering ABS.

Stuffed inside the competent steel trellis chassis is a Euro5 1079cc V-twin delivering a claimed 84.8bhp at 7500rpm and 66.5lb.ft of torque at 4750rpm.

Moving on from the '70s throwback, Ducati have also released a new £10,395 Urban Motard, which joins the Scrambler 800 family as a road-focussed, fashionable supermoto.

Weighing in at 196kg fully fuelled, it's powered by the same 803cc twin as the rest of the range and produces a claimed 72bhp at 8250rpm and 48.5lb.ft of torque at 5750rpm. This is all wrapped up in a steel trellis chassis.

It rolls on 17in wheels shod with Pirelli Diablo Rosso 3 tyres, with 120/70x17 and 180/55x17 dimensions giving plenty of choice for grippy road rubber. A seat height of 805mm makes it slightly taller than some of its siblings, though. 

A tall front mudguard, flat seat and number boards complete the retro motard look and work alongside modern touches like full LED lighting, and mobile connectivity courtesy of the Ducati Multimedia System.

You’ll also find a USB socket under the seat as standard, plus cornering ABS for controlled stopping power at lean – a feature now found on every machine in Ducati’s range.

Bikes will be available as of November 2021. Like the rest of the Italian retro line-up, both variants will also be available as 47bhp A2-compliant versions, too.
