Equipped with the same engine as that of the Nightshift, the Desert Sled brings the grand version of Scrambler to life and offers a unique mix of off-road spirit and lifestyle values. The Desert Sled then, is about kicking up the dirt in style.
The Ducati Scrambler Nightshift stands out for its "Aviator Grey" colour, combined with a steel Trellis frame. Equipped with a new Café Racer-style flat seat, which is comfortable both for rider and passenger, the Nightshift does not compromise a bit on comfort, while assuring extremely powerful performance. The Nightshift is equipped with the iconic Pirelli MT60 tyre coupled with spoked wheels, which gives it a sleek yet dynamic look. The side number plates, and the premium LED lighting enhances the overall aesthetic of the Nightshift and takes it to the next level.
The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled comes directly from the deserts and mountains of California and offers a fresh take on the off-road bikes of the ’60s and ’70s that made American history. With a similar engine compared to the Nightshift, the Desert Sled packs as much power. Along with the golden rims and the classic black frame, the all-new “Sparking Blue” livery enriched with red and white details on the tank and mudguards pays a humble tribute to the Enduro bikes of the 80s and enhances the distinctly off-road character of the bike.
The high front mudguard and extended rear fender makes it the perfect outdoor partner. The high plate holder, variable cross-section handlebar and adjustable Kayaba suspensions with 46mm fork and 200mm excursion, makes 'off-roading' a 'seamless' experience. The Desert Sled is also equipped with Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR 120/70 R19 tyre at the front and Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR 170/60 R17 tyre at the rear, for the right balance between off-road and Enduro street performance.
Both Nightshift and Desert Sled come equipped with the 803 CC L-twin two-valve engine which puts outs a maximum power of 73hp@8,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 66.2Nm@5,750 rpm and is tuned for a smooth delivery of power across the rev range. Both the Scramblers are equipped with a 6-speed gearbox and the clutch is a wet multi plate type with hydraulic control and a servo-assisted slipper function that limits rear wheel destabilization during down-shifts.
