Ducati Desert Sled Latest Updates
Ducati has launched the new 2019 Desert Sled at Rs 7.89 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Other than minor cosmetic updates, the Desert Sled gets new switchgear, new instrument console, a hydraulic clutch and cornering ABS. The updated model now commands a premium of Rs 43,000 over its previous iteration.
The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled is the most expensive bike in the Ducati Scrambler range. It takes its design inspiration from the off-road bikes of the 60’s and 70’s that were hugely popular in the US. As the names suggest, the new bike is a dual-purpose offering.
For 2019, it gets a revised riding position, thanks to the full 200mm extended travel on the front and rear suspension, higher seat (a 20mm lower seat option is available as an accessory) and off-road style foot pegs with removable rubber pads. Other off-road elements on the new Scrambler Desert Sled include high-mounted mudguard, knobby tyres, bash plates and spoke wheels.
Powering the Desert Sled is the same 803cc air-cooled motor as seen on the standard Scrambler which delivers 76PS of power and 68Nm of peak torque and is now Euro 4-compliant. The bike is devoid of any electronic aids and the frame has been stiffened up. ABS is a standard fitment on the motorcycle. The Scrambler Desert Sled rides on a 19-inch front wheel, while a 17-inch unit does duty at the back, and both come shod in Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR rubber.
