Scrambler Desert Sled

I've never been a huge fan of the Scrambler models, but I can't believe that there aren't any posts about this new model.

Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled - Got Roost?

I like this one, especially in the white !

I agree with you!

The Desert Sled and the Cafe Racer are my favorite Scramblers to date.

They really take the Scrambler to it's limits (Something the Flat Tracker and the Urban Enduro failed to).

Hear hear! T

The new DS Scrambler excites me more than any other model from Ducati at the moment. I think they nailed the design brief.

Air cooled, simple tech, properly modified suspension and swingarm, I hope a whole "scrambler adv" movement springs up from this bike, I would much rather tour on this than the new Mini Multistrada. Keep it simple and fun, I don't want 3 different riding modes and all that other BS, nice honest donk, good brakes and some decent luggage, maybe a screen, now lets go have some fun.

Edit: Did i mention what a sucker I am for Gold spoked rims on any bike!

''The man hunched over his motorcycle can focus only on the present instant of his flight; he is caught in a fragment of time cut off from both the past and the future; he is wrenched from the continuity of time . . . in other words, he is in a state of ecstasy; in that state he is unaware of his age, his wife, his children, his worries, and so he has no fear, because the source of fear is in the future, and a person freed of the future has nothing to fear.''

Yes It has my interest as well, I've a triumph tiger xc that does general duties so this may be a good alternative.
I was thinking it may be a bit lighter though but seems only about 10kg lighter and will carry a lot less fuel.

But it is shorter so may be a bit more manoeuvrable so easier to handle on tracks, the tiger is quite big. Will be
interesting to see what it's like in the real world and not my imagination.

It looks very lean, how can it weigh 456 lbs? Can cut 15 with an exhaust and delete, but it will need a spark arrestor.

+1 I saw it on the 2017 Live stream started thinking I need one then
found out it weighs much more than my Hyper 1100s.
