    DESERT SLED BLACK EDITION

    The Scrambler® Desert Sled Black Edition is a special version that adds a stamp of personality to the off-road character. The name Desert Sled refers to standard motorcycles over 500 cc that were modified by riders for use in the Californian desert with knobby tyres, reinforced suspensions, spoked wheels and engine protection plates to protect the bike against the debris of impassable desert roads. The Scrambler® Desert Sled Black Edition evokes this spirit exactly, accented by a colour that pays tribute to the 1980s, the golden era of enduro motorbikes.

    The name Desert Sled refers to standard motorcycles over 500 cc that were modified by riders for use in the Californian desert with knobbly tyres, reinforced suspensions, spoked wheels and engine protection plates to protect the bike against the debris of impassable desert roads. The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled perfectly reflects this spirit without forgetting lifestyle values, and expands the Ducati Scrambler family with a new version dedicated to off-road style.

    Desert Sled inherits the Urban Enduro logo as it is its explicit evolution. In fact, it is to its strong offroad character that we owe the new riding position characterised by a higher seat, a reinforced frame and fully adjustable suspension, the presence of a type-approved grid on the front headlight, the engine protection, and with the new Pirelli ScorpionTM Rally STR tyres with spoked wheels 19” front / 17” rear.
