Ducati India has launched the
Scrambler Desert Sled. The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled also comes with a
dedicated accessory and apparel line. The Scrambler Desert Sled is available in
‘Red Dusk’ and ‘White Mirage’ with black frame and spoked wheels with gold rims
at Rs 9,32,000 & Rs 9,45,000 (Ex-showroom) respectively.
Prices for the Euro 4 version
of the Scrambler Icon and Scrambler Classic start at Rs 7,23,000 and Rs
8,48,000 respectively. Bookings for Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled, Icon and
Classic (now available in Euro 4 version) are open and the motorcycles are
available across all dealerships in Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune,
Ahmedabad and Kochi.
Drawing its inspiration from
the off-road bikes of the '60s and '70s that made US motorcycling history in
the mountains and deserts of California, the Scrambler Desert Sled offers a
unique incomparable style. Equipped with a 6-speed gearbox, the Euro 4-compliant,
twin-cylinder 803cc air and oil-cooled engine delivers 75 hp at 8,250 rpm and a
torque of 68 Nm at 5,750 rpm. The updated homologation introduces a new
throttle control and an all-new engine calibration that has made power delivery
even smoother, especially at the bottom end of the rev range.
The modified frame and
suspension, high mudguards (specially designed for this version), type-approved
headlight mesh guard and engine skid plate lend to the offroad capability of
the Scrambler Desert Sled. The Scrambler Desert Sled is the natural evolution
of the Urban Enduro version towards a more functional off-road style. It is
also characterised by a new riding position thanks to the full 200 mm extended
travel on the front and rear suspension, higher seat (a 20 mm low seat option
is available as an accessory) and off-road style foot pegs with removable
The 19” front and 17” rear
spoked wheels on the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled mount the new Pirelli Scorpion
Rally STR tyres that have been specially designed to combine the performance of
a top-flight off-road tyre with that of an enduro street one.
Combining maximum stopping
performance with minimalist styling, the Brembo braking system features a Bosch
9.1 MP ABS system with pressure sensor. The front wheel has a single 330 mm
disc and a 4-piston Brembo M4.32B monobloc caliper while the rear features a
245 mm disc gripped by a 32 mm diameter piston caliper.
Sergi Canovas Garriga,
Managing Director of Ducati India said, “We’ve introduced for the first time in
India, a motorcycle in the ‘easy off-road’ category. Staying true to the
Scrambler family and inspiration from the '60s and '70s, California motorcycle
scene, the Desert Sled reinforces the pure essence of motorcycling: two wheels,
wide handlebars, a straightforward engine and endless fun. The bike is perfect
for the city and to get off the tarmac and explore the road less travelled.”
