Model Year Run Out Now On
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.
