2017 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled Review

2017 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled on www.Totalmotorcycle.com

Some Like it Hot…

Directly from the desert and mountains of California comes the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled: a new version that draws its inspiration from the off-road bikes that, back in the ’60s and ’70s, made US motorcycling history.

Desert Sleds were American-born bikes that appeared in South-West California and in Mexico’s Baja California in the ’60s and ’70s. These were road bikes with engine displacements of over 500 cm3, stripped of any non-essential accessories, fitted with off-road tyres, wheels and spokes and given modified suspension systems and engine skid plates. In fact, it’s the engine skid plate – indispensable in shielding the bike from rocks, stones and the unforgiving desert terrain – that gave the Desert Sled its name.

Over the years these bikes became a motorcycle category in their own right: until their arrival, no comparable style had ever been seen.

The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled faithfully revives that spirit – but without abandoning the unique Scrambler lifestyle values – and extends the new Bolognabuilt brand into the “easy off-road” sector. Thanks to the modified frame and suspension, the spoked wheels (19″ at the front) and ground-breaking lines, this bike is simply perfect for those who want to be able to get off the asphalt and take a less-beaten track. The off-road capability of the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled is also evident in the type-approved headlight mesh guard, the high mudguards (specially designed for this version) and, of course, the engine skid plate.

Thanks to a higher seat (a 20 mm lower one is available as an optional), suspension with extended travel (now 200 mm) and off-road style footpegs with removable rubber pads, this Scrambler is also characterised by a new riding position. The passenger
pegs – separated from the rider’s – are removable.

The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled inherits its logo from the Urban Enduro and is a natural evolution of the latter towards a more off-road style.

An off-road-inspired chassis set-up
The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled features an all-new chassis set-up, perfect for “soft off-road” adventure riding.

Compared to other Ducati Scrambler 800 versions, the Desert Sled frame has been reinforced to take the punishment meted out by off-road terrain. It’s also been equipped with two side plates that hug the engine and support the new swingarm, itself reinforced and longer than those on other Scrambler 800 versions. The swingarm also gets a new chain guard and, as you’d expect with an off-road bike, a rear sprocket protection fin.

Even the fork yokes are new on the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled, boasting wider inter-fork clearance and an augmented offset.
The suspension has been designed to ensure comfort and control, even when you put the asphalt behind you. That’s why front and rear suspension now have a full 200 mm of travel. At the front, the upside-down 46 mm Kayaba forks offer spring pre-load, compression and rebound damping adjustment; at the rear the Kayaba shock absorber allows for adjustment of spring pre-load and rebound damping and is equipped with a separate gas cartridge.

This new set-up gives the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled a seat height of 860 mm and a wheelbase of 1505 mm.

19″ front wheel: fun everywhere
The spoked wheels on the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled – a beefy 19″ up front and 17″ at the rear – mount the new Pirelli SCORPION™ RALLY STR tyres, 120/70 R19 M/C 60V M+S TL at the front and 170/60 R 17 M/C 72V M+S TL at the rear.
The Pirelli SCORPION™ RALLY STR is the new “enduro on/off” tyre specially designed for the latest generation of adventure, dual purpose and enduro street bikes. The SCORPION™ RALLY STR revolutionises the tyre world as it successfully combines the performance of a top-flight off-road tyre with that of an enduro street one.

The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled mounts a Brembo braking system featuring a Bosch 9.1 MP ABS system with pressure sensor. Combining maximum stopping performance with minimalist styling, the front wheel has a single 330 mm disc (a good 5 mm thick) and a 4-piston Brembo M4.32B monobloc caliper with radial attachment. This decision to mount a powerful single-disc front braking system was taken to leave a clear view on the right side of the wheel. At the back, instead, a 245 mm disc is gripped by a caliper with a 32 mm diameter piston.

Engine
The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled mounts the EURO 4-compliant, twin-cylinder 803 cm3 air and oil-cooled engine taken from the Icon. Together with the new homologation comes 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.

Equipped with a 6-speed gearbox, the twin-cylinder Desmodue engine on the Scrambler has been designed to favour smooth running and fluid acceleration throughout the rev range, delivering 75 hp at 8,250 rpm and a torque of 68 Nm at 5,750 rpm.

Designed to be simple and accessible, just like the Ducati Scrambler itself, it also features 12,000 km (7,500 miles) maintenance intervals.

Dirt, Fun & Style
In perfect Scrambler style, the Desert Sled comes with a dedicated accessory and apparel line, including a pad for the handlebar
strut, an extra pair of front spotlights (a must on more adventurous routes), hand guards and a type-approved high exhaust.

Moreover, anyone preferring a lower seat can order an optional version with a height reduction of 20 mm.

The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled line includes an eye-catching off-road Bell helmet designed by legendary Los Angeles customiser and designer Roland Sands, plus an all-new collection of off-road style gloves, sweatshirts and T-shirts.

Ducati Scrambler is not just a new motorcycle but rather a new brand, a new approach to the motorcycling world that offers not only performance and technology but also freedom of expression, fun and sharing of positive emotion. Ducati Scrambler is a new brand, offering a whole new world made up of bikes, accessories and apparel that provide the last word in self-expression. Anti-conformist, accessible and essential, the Ducati Scrambler is a perfect mix of tradition and modernity, a step towards the pure essence of motorcycling: two wheels, wide handlebars, a straightforward engine and endless fun. The Scrambler world – the latest addition to the Ducati universe – is one of authentic creativity and free expression; the lead-up to its official arrival has generated an unprecedented buzz, as has a captivating launch campaign of outstanding originality.

This is more than just a new bike: it’s a whole new world, one that expresses itself via a range of versions that provide a starting point for satisfying the different needs and wants of individual motorcyclists. “Post-heritage” design gives a contemporary take on the iconic bike built by Ducati back in the 70s. This Ducati Scrambler, though, is not a retro bike: it is, rather, intended to be just how the legendary motorcycle would be today if Ducati had never stopped building it.

In 2016 the Ducati Scrambler family is set to grow. The Icon, Urban Enduro, Full Throttle and Classic versions will soon be joined by the Flat Track Pro, inspired by the world of oval track racing, and the new Sixty2 which opens the way for a new two-wheel segment that meets the requirements of those seeking a smaller-engined bike that is easy to handle and has low running costs but not wanting to miss out on the unique Scrambler spirit.

Moreover, thanks to a vast range of apparel and bike accessories, called “ingredients”, the Ducati Scrambler offers a virtually unlimited range of exclusive personalisation and lifestyle options.

Named after the English word “to scramble” (mixing up, blending), the Ducati Scrambler is a form of expression of the rider’s identity and lifestyle. The four motorcycle versions (Icon, Full Throttle, Classic and Urban Enduro) are just a starting point to create an absolutely unique, personalised model. Thanks to a wide range of ingredients, each Ducati Scrambler can be customised to suit any owner tastes.

A vast array of Ducati Performance ‘ingredients’ can be used to personalise the Ducati Scrambler. For example, chrome, matt black, or even carbon fibre tank side panels are available. Then there are a variety of solutions regarding the front mudguard, high plate holder, tank bag, canvas and leather panniers, high and low Termignoni slip-on exhaust, headlamp rim and grille, instrument panel rim, vintage grips, rear-view mirrors plus spoked wheels, four different seat versions and the low-slung tapered handlebars.

2017 Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

When the Ducati Design Center started working on the Ducati Scrambler the goal immediately became a very clear one: to revive a legend while, simultaneously, building a truly modern bike. A new bike inspired by the iconic 70s model but with all the technical specifications of a present-day one. That’s why, for example, the bike features an upside down stanchion fork, alloy rims, a rear monoshock, and front radial-mount calipers.

Everything on the Ducati Scrambler has been designed to be as “Ducati” as possible while remaining faithful to the style of its inspiring predecessor. Firstly, there’s the tank, sculptural and lovingly shaped yet loyal to the original teardrop design of the 70s model, including the ‘upward sloping’ look. Additional character is provided by the tank side covers: made of brushed aluminium, they’re interchangeable to allow plenty of scope for personalisation and feature version-specific logos.

Seat and tank have been formed carefully to give the Ducati Scrambler eye-pleasing proportions. A compact bike, the Ducati Scrambler instils confidence from the moment you set eyes on it. It’s been sized to make it accessible to all motorcyclists while its long seat maximises comfort and can accommodate a passenger comfortably, because the Ducati Scrambler is all about sharing too.
A great deal of thought has gone into every detail on the Ducati Scrambler, including the ultra-modern rear swingarm and the exhaust pipe routing, a layout that echoes the look seen on the latest Ducati nakeds. The short silencer and the rear mudguard tip have been designed to make the bike more compact, as have the passenger grab handles, hidden by the openings on the upper part of the seat.
Redesigned for the present day, the round headlamp is a key part of the Ducati Scrambler look. Ultra-modern LED light guide technology (used for the side lights) underlines the outstanding level of technical expertise. The filler cap, which sports the inscription “born free – 1962”, reflects the closure system in vogue in the 70s; similarly, the key, once inserted in the switchgear on the headlamp unit, recalls the design of the original light switch. Under-seat moulding provides another 70s design throwback.

 

Components

Lighting
Together with the fuel tank, the front headlamp is one of the most characteristic features of the Ducati Scrambler. Round, classically designed yet contemporary – that is, post-heritage – it has a glass front with a modern, LED-powered light guide around the rim (this acts as a side light). When on, it recalls the popular 70s stratagem of applying protective adhesive tape to off-road bike headlights. The high-beam function is performed by a single bulb hidden behind a Ducati-logoed screen. Moreover, the contrast between the cold white side light and warm yellow headlamp gives the Ducati Scrambler yet another personality boost.

At the rear, instead, lies a full-LED unit. This gives off a suffused light and features a technology unprecedented on motorcycles; this ‘soft’ effect is, in fact, achieved by combining an opaque light-diffusing lens with a 12-LED electrical card (18 LEDs when the brake is applied).

The bulb-powered indicators – positioned to the sides of the headlamp and on the rear mudguard – match the Scrambler style to perfection. Ducati Scrambler riders are also provided with a hazard light function, activated simply by holding down the left indicator button for three seconds.

 

Instrumentation
The Ducati Scrambler instrument panel consists of a single, round unit positioned above and slightly to the right of the headlamp. Fully digital, it has an engine rpm scale resonant of those seen on ’70s motorcycle speedometers (i.e. in the lower part of the instrument body). As engine revs increase the digits light up clockwise (right to left). Ducati Scrambler instrumentation also features two trip odometers and one total-mileage odometer, a trip fuel indicator, an air temperature display, maintenance reminders, a clock, and fuel reserve and ABS warning lights. Riders can also count on an engine oil pressure warning light, high beam indicator, neutral indicator, turn signal indicators, immobilizer and over-rev warning light.

Controls
Post-heritage styling is also evident on Ducati Scrambler controls. The wide handlebars house a classic wire-connected twist-grip throttle together with an axial-pump front brake lever with 4 different position settings. Minimalist Ducati Scrambler design continues with the cable-actuating clutch lever. The switchgear is characterised by the now-standard yet exclusive “trigger catch” that slides down to cover the starter button when the kill switch is activated. It’s the same one used on all Ducati bikes, its high tech design underscoring the post-heritage style of the Ducati Scrambler.

The black painted die cast aluminium footrest plates support the gear change lever and the off-road type rear brake lever.

Engine
An oil cooled L-twin two-valve Euro 4 803 cc engine powers the Ducati Scrambler. Derived from the Monster 796 engine, it has an 88 mm bore, a 66 mm stroke and has been redesigned to give smooth acceleration throughout the rev range. The Desmodue engine on the Ducati Scrambler has light machine-finished aluminium covers, including those on the clutch and alternator. The two belt covers are also made of aluminium and have, likewise, been machine-finished to enhance aesthetics.

To ensure smooth integration with the compact steel teardrop tank, the Desmodue engine on the Ducati Scrambler features a single 50 mm throttle body with two sub-butterfly injectors: this solution ensures fluid power delivery and accurate control of the fuel being aspirated into the cylinders.

Pistons and crankshaft are the same as those on the Monster 796 and Hypermotard 796 power units, while the camshafts have been designed to ensure linear power delivery thanks to the adoption of an 11° valve overlap angle. The 2-in-1 exhaust with aluminium silencer has been specially designed for the Ducati Scrambler. It features an aluminium heat plate for improved rider protection and is EURO 3 compliant.

The gearbox is a 6-speed unit while the multiplate APTC oil bath clutch with cable actuation, while emphasising the minimalist nature of the Ducati Scrambler, provides a light-touch brake lever with outstanding ‘feel’, a real plus point when it comes to the continuous stop-and-go of inner city traffic. Moreover, it features a torque-linked anti-hopping system that prevents rear wheel chatter when downshifting.

The twin-cylinder Desmodue engine on the Ducati Scrambler has been designed to favour smooth running and fluid acceleration throughout the rev range, putting out 75 hp (55.2 kW) @ 8,250 rpm and 50.2 lb-ft (6.9 kgm) of torque @ 5,750 rpm. Just like the Ducati Scrambler itself, it is designed to be simple and accessible and also features generous 12,000 kilometres maintenance intervals.

Desmo delight
The Ducati Scrambler is iconic, as is the celebrated Ducati Desmo, the engine valve closure system that has made Ducati famous all over the world. This system opens and closes the intake and exhaust valves positively and precisely, using a system of cams and levers. The term desmodromic stems from the Greek words desmos (link) and dromos (stroke); mechanically speaking, the term refers to mechanisms with a control to operate them in one direction (e.g. opening) and another which acts in the opposite direction (closure or return).

However, the desmodromic concept is not a recent one and has been used in the motorcycle and car industries for some time. It first appeared, in a variety of forms, way back at the start of the twentieth century. In 1956 renowned engineer Fabio Taglioni set Ducati off along the desmodromic path: the first bike to feature the solution was the Grand Prix 125, which had three overhead camshafts, driven by a vertical shaft and a bevel gear.

From that point on desmodromic history became a Ducati exclusive and in 1968 the company started producing this timing system as standard with the Mark 3 Desmo 350. This milestone of a motorcycle essentially had the same timing system as current 2-valve twin cylinder engines like the one on the Ducati Scrambler, clear evidence of the concept’s soundness. Used on all Ducati models, the system is also employed on Ducati Corse’s Superbikes and Desmosedici MotoGP bikes.

 

Chassis

Frame
The Ducati Scrambler features a twin upper spar steel Trellis frame. Essential and elegant, the Ducati Scrambler frame embraces the engine and extends beneath the seat, providing the stiffness one expects from a real Ducati. Thanks to a steering head angle of 24° and a 112 mm offset on the fork yokes, manoeuvrability is outstanding both in city traffic and on Alpine hairpins. Thanks to the wide handlebars, weaving your way through the urban obstacle course on a Ducati Scrambler is child’s play, while the 1445 mm wheelbase maximises stability at high speeds. The steel fuel tank, with that unmistakeable teardrop contour, has a capacity of 13.5 l (3.6 US gal). With an excellent frame and outstanding chassis geometry, the Ducati Scrambler makes for relaxed riding that is easy yet fun. User-friendly and agile, the Ducati Scrambler is a source of endless satisfaction on both city streets and the open road.

Suspension
The Kayaba suspension system on the Ducati Scrambler makes use of a 41 mm upside down stanchion fork and a monoshock with adjustable spring preload. Both provide 150 mm of wheel travel, ensuring the tyres hug the ground whatever the terrain, from city streets to undemanding off-road routes. It is this mix of comfort and performance that makes the Ducati Scrambler unique, letting riders express themselves to the maximum everywhere and anywhere.

Wheels and tyres
All new aluminium 10-spoke wheels – of evident flat-track origin – come as standard on the Ducati Scrambler. The design is a throwback to the days of thin, criss-crossed spokes inserted in the hub. The 3” x 18” front rim and the rear 5.5” x 17” one have been designed to be light and mount the new enduro-type Pirelli MT60 RS 110/80 ZR18 tyre at the front and the 180/55 ZR17 at the rear; featuring a chunky tread pattern, these tyres are produced exclusively for the Ducati Scrambler. The result is outstanding performance on surfaces of any kind.

Brembo braking system with 2-channel ABS
The Ducati Scrambler features Brembo braking using the Bosch 9.1 MP AMS system with an internal pressure sensor. To combine maximum stopping performance with minimalist styling the front wheel has a single 330 mm disc, no less than 5 mm thick, with a 4-piston Brembo M 4.32B monobloc radial-mount caliper. This heavy duty single-disc front brake solution was chosen to leave a clear view of the wheel design on the right. At the back, instead, a 245 mm disc is gripped by a caliper with a 32 mm piston.

A bit of history
The Scrambler was designed following a request from the Berliner brothers, the US importers of Ducati bikes in the 1960s. They wanted a bike that would suit the tastes of American bikers. Initial contact was established by Giorgio Monetti – famous for his round-the-world ride together with Leopoldo Tartarini – who was then Sales Manager at Ducati. It was agreed that the bike would have to be extremely practical and the design work was entrusted to Renzo Neri, who, even though he was Technical Department Manager at the time, was known to have a skilled hand: the designs for the tank, seat and mudguards are, in fact, his. The first Scrambler went into production in 1962 and was modified uninterruptedly until 1968, when the real “long engine cover” Scramblers appeared, followed by the 250 and 350 versions and, in 1969, the 450.

The first Scrambler series included some bikes with desmodromic cylinder heads and was the subject of continuous technical adjustments until production was discontinued in 1975. For a variety of reasons, the Scrambler was an enormous success. First of all, it embodied the rebellious, unconventional spirit of the time. It also had an exceptional frame, good enough to even be used on the racetrack. Also, it had a purpose-built engine, and great overall performance with a perfect central riding position made it one of the most enjoyable bikes of the period. Last but not least, it was cool: rounded lines with a hint of both classic and modern blended seamlessly with the bright colouring, which stood out against the black chassis setup and chrome tank.

The first Scrambler model is universally acknowledged as the meeting point between the American and European schools of motorcycling. A bike that defined an era, it became a Ducati milestone in much the same way that the 916 and Monster later would.
