Ducati has launched a funky new version of the Scrambler Desert Sled, the limited and numbered edition ‘Desert Sled Fasthouse’. The bike celebrates the collaboration between Ducati and the American clothing brand Fasthouse, which in 2020 achieved victory in the Hooligan class of the Mint 400, the oldest and most prestigious off-road race in America, with rider Jordan Graham.
The model will be available in dealerships from the end of March in a limited and numbered series of 800 units. Working from a base Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled, the Fasthouse model is distinguished by its special livery, which replicates the graphics used by the bikes that took part in the Mint 400. The frame is painted Ducati Red and wears an aluminium plate bearing the number of the bike within the limited series.
Ducati say the swingarm, triple clamps and bespoke suspension make this model perfect for those who want to experience great adventures on off-road trails, just like those of the Nevada desert that each year are the scene for the Mint 400. This is underlined by the chassis, which Ducati says is specifically designed to cope with the stresses of off-road use, as well as by the presence of a homologated grille for the front headlight, high mudguards and the skid plate.
The collaboration between the Scrambler Ducati (aka ‘Land of Joy’?!) and Fasthouse also includes the launch of a ‘capsule collection of apparel’, namely a short-sleeved t-shirt, long-sleeved t-shirt, jacket and cap, which will be available for purchase from the end of April on Fasthouse’s sales channels, in Ducati network dealers and on the Ducati Online Shop. Further information and details on Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled Fasthouse and the capsule collection are available on the scramblerducati.com website.
