In the 1960s and 1970s, American-made bikes called Desert Slades began appearing in Southern California and Baja California, Mexico. These were road bikes with no extras and more than 500 cm3 engine displacement. They got updated suspension systems, engine skid pan, spoke wheels, and off-road tires. Desert Sled receives its name from the engine skid pan, which is essential to protect the bike from rocks, boulders, and harsh desert environments. These motorcycles evolved into a separate motorcycle category over time since, before their introduction, there was never such a design.
The 2021 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled revives this attitude while maintaining specific lifestyle values. This bike is ideal for people who want to get out of the paved road and choose the less traveled route because of the red frame, swing arm, fork yoke, suspension, spoke wheels (19 front), and ground. Breaking lines Type approved headlamp mesh guards, high mid guards (which were made specifically for this variant), and of course, the engine skid pan are all indicators of the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled’s off-road capability.
