    An eclectic mix of funky retro and contemporary design, the Scrambler Desert Sled is the most ‘scrambler’ model in the Scrambler range.

    The bike uses the same 803cc air-cooled Desmodue L-twin motor as the rest of the range, but it has a gold 19in front and 17in rear with both wearing Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR rubber.

    The steel trellis frame has been strengthened to cope with off-road work, and the Desert Sled also has a bashplate and bear-claw footpegs with removable rubber inserts.

    Up front there’s fully-adjustable 46KYB forks, while the rear is also fully-adjustable.
