Steel, swingarm, suspension: the 3 S's. The subframe and tank are likely steel - if they were aluminum, they'd probably be 5 lbs lighter between them. Maybe more. And the frame is described as "reinforced." It doesn't look any different from the base Scrambler in the promo shots, so I'd wager that the reinforcement is either cross-struts going underneath the tank or using tubing that is just less hollow. Maybe both. Regardless, that's probably 5 more pounds. Then you've got an obviously beefier swingarm and rear shock dogbone, plus longer-travel suspension. Probably 2-3 pounds per fork and 2-3 on the shock as well. Then you've got thises and thats - wider (and reinforced) bars, bash plates, probably tire tubes, stronger bolts... I can see how you can tack on 20 pounds over the base Scrambler, easy. It still weighs much less than a Triumph.

I think they also reinforced the portion where the swingarm mounts directly to the engine case.

Desert Sled too heavy

Having ridden my dirt bikes hundreds of miles in the Mohave I cannot see this bike a t 460 lbs being any fun.

The triumph tiger has tons more power, longer range and only weighs about 5 pounds more.

Nice for about town though.

It's a great looking bike and good to see that Ducati decided to offer it.

Saw the bike at Marin Speed Shop (San Rafael, CA). Super nice and the wheels are purty. I sat on it, wow, tall like my multistrada. Then, checked out the Cafe Racer, it's ok, not bad. I prefer Holographic Hammer's Scrambler's Cafe Racer.

Mad-Ducati Lover!
