Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled Overview
Ducati takes a ride down the memory lane with its new member in the Scrambler family, called the Desert Sled. A bike that is meant for the street and a little off the pavement riding. With more heavy duty suspension, the 2017 Desert Sled is more tilted towards off-roading, unlike the Iconic 2015 Scrambler that was a bit pavement based. The Desert Sled is providing the benefits of dual sports bikes in a road legal package. Everything else is typical Ducati Scrambler, meaning that the fit and finish is 100% solid. The bike simply sounds, looks and feels great.
Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled Engine & Transmission
The new Scrambler comes with an 803 cc L-Twin, Desmodromic distribution, 2-valve per cylinder, air-cooled engine that’s popping about 75 bhp at 8,250 rpm and 68 Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm, which is mated to a 6-speed gearbox with an APTC wet multi-plate clutch with mechanical control. At a price of Rs. 9.34 Lakh (Ex-showroom, New Delhi), the bike is perfect for the city, and to get off the tarmac and explore the road less travelled.
Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled Mileage
This long-awaited Scrambler holds a good 13.5 L fuel tank and loses out a litre of fuel every 20 km. The Desert Sled features a cool digital instrument cluster with ABSS light on it. The bike’s got adjustable springs up front and on the rear, and a wide and comfortable seat that can easily house 2 persons and make them feel unwilling to leave it.
Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled Performance and Handling
The spoked wheels on the bike (19-inch front/17-inch rear) are wrapped in specially-designed Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres, making sure you conquer the road with ease. The power delivery has become more linear, and the throttle is now smoother and responds perfectly; just keep the revs above 4000 rpm to keep the fun going. The 330 mm front disc with 4 piston callipers and the rear 245 mm disc with a single calliper are enough to bring this machine to a dead stop.
