When you think of motorcycles, it is fair to say that Ducati are one of the first names to spring to mind so whenever they’ve got a new contraption to shout about, most motorbike aficionados will inevitably sit up and take notice – especially when it looks as awesome and versatile as the Ducati Desert Sled Motorbike from their Scrambler range of machines.
The Ducati Desert Sled Motorbike is inspired by the machines popularised in 1960s and 70s America and if you’re after a new bike that has adventure at its core and can tackle any terrains you can throw at it, this one certainly won’t let you down. Robust, aesthetically superior and with a performance to write home about, it’s easy to see why petrolheads are getting excited about the capabilities of the Desert Sled Motorbike from Ducati.
A Ride to Remember
The name Desert Sled refers to the standard motorcycles over 500 cc that were modified by their riders so that they could be ridden in the Californian desert in the 1960s and 70s. Just some of the modifications that they carried out included the addition of knobbly tyres, reinforced suspensions, spoked wheels and engine protection plates to ensure the bikes were well protected against the inevitable and unavoidable debris of the various impassable desert roads riders were endeavouring to negotiate.
Motorbikes come in many different forms but the Ducati Desert Sled is definitely firmly in the built for exploration category and reflects the spirit of adventure prevalent in 1960s California without neglecting the all important lifestyle values whilst also growing the Ducati Scrambler family with a new machine that is dedicated to off-road biking and style.
This mighty impressive steed from Ducati is set apart from the competition by a higher seat, a reinforced frame for added resilience and robustness in desert terrains and fully adjustable suspension to tackle the uneven landscapes of multiple terrains. You’ll also be pleased to find presence of a type-approved grid on the front headlight, first class engine protection and, last but not least, the new Pirelli ScorpionTM Rally STR tyres with spoked wheels 19” front / 17” rear for a truly out of this world ride.
You know Ducati are a safe pair of hands when it comes to motorbikes and their Desert Sled machine from their Scrambler range of bikes very much looks as being one of their best to date. Whilst we know next to nothing about motorbikes here at Coolector HQ, we know what we like the look of and this Desert Sled definitely scores well in the aesthetics department.
If you’re the sort that likes to get out in open terrains and explore on two wheels and need a motorbike that can keep up with your spirit for adventure, the Desert Sled from Ducati would certainly be right up there with the best of them and gets our vote here at The Coolector.
