Du­cati’s Desert Sled Now in In­dia

Bike India - - IGNITION -

Du­cati In­dia have added a new ver­sion to their Scram­bler range of mo­tor­cy­cles, called the Desert Sled, priced at Rs 9.32 lakh (ex-In­dia). Like its sib­lings, the new model con­tin­ues to be pow­ered by the 803-cc twin-cylin­der en­gine. The mo­tor is Euro 4-com­pli­ant now and pro­duces 75 PS at 8,250 rpm and a torque of 68 Nm at 5,750 rpm.

The Ital­ian marque has given sev­eral tweaks to the Desert Sled, in­clud­ing a new throt­tle body as well as en­gine cal­i­bra­tion, which have im­proved power de­liv­ery. The bike gets a mod­i­fied frame, a new sus­pen­sion sys­tem, raised fend­ers, grille pro­tec­tion for the head­light, and even an en­gine skid-plate to help it do some “soft off-road ad­ven­ture rid­ing”. Like the rest of the Scram­bler line-up, the Desert Sled also of­fers ded­i­cated ac­ces­sories and an ap­parel line for cus­tomers. Please turn over to page 54 for our first ride re­port.
