Ducati Motorcycles Scrambler Desert Sled 2022

According to Ducati Motorcycles

Making its way out of the roughest roads of California and New Mexico, the new Scrambler Desert Sled is designed for those who love the unconventional streets and the less traveled paths. This essential and yet grand version of Scrambler offers a unique mix of off-road spirit and lifestyle values.

New “Sparking Blue” livery enriched with red and white details on the tank and mudguards. This livery is a tribute to the Enduro bikes of the 80s and enhances the distinctly off-road character of the bike, along with the golden rims and the classic black frame.

Headlight with glass lens and DRL. LED turn indicators.

High front mudguard. Extended rear fender. High plate holder. Variable cross-section handlebar. Adjustable Kayaba Suspensions with 46mm fork and 200mm excursion.
