Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled

When most people think of Ducati, images of hipster-friendly cafe racers and track bikes are probably what comes to mind. That image, however, does the brand a disservice. Because they are much more diverse than that. To prove that, they’ve released a new version of their Scrambler bike. And this one isn’t relegated to the pavement.

Named the Desert Sled, this bike is a throwback to the motorcycles of the California Deserts in the 1960s and 1970s. Built in the enduro style, this two-wheeler is fitted with an 803cc L-Twin engine – which produces 75 horsepower and 50 foot-pounds of torque – and a 6-speed transmission. It’s also equipped with a pair of sand-shredding Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires – a vastly improved version of the knobby tires that graced the wheels of this bike’s classic predecessors – and some handy additions that make riding in unforgiving off-road terrain a snap – like engine plates and a protective grill over the headlight. Unfortunately, you’ll have to get in touch with the brand if you want any information on the price. [Purchase]
