The technical equipment is also very reminiscent of the Icon: There is a cornering ABS from Bosch - and nothing else. No driving modes, no traction control, no lean angle sensors. That's a good thing, because we want to concentrate on riding and not constantly check on the smartphone whether the bike has anything to tell us.
In addition to speed and engine speed, the round LC display provides information about the selected gear and the fuel level. There is also an on-board computer, which is operated via a simple toggle switch at the left end of the handlebar. Ready.
There is a small surprise in the lighting equipment: If the Icon still drives with completely LED, the Urban Motard has an H4 main headlight. Everything else is also LED incl. turn signals and daytime running lights, which can be activated by a separate switch. Did Ducati choose a halogen headlight to make a little retro or to enhance the scrambler touch? We don't know, but in the end it doesn't matter. The lamps front and rear look very stylish.
