And to make sure it survives that abuse (because some of the original Icons came to untimely ends with structural failures after they were jumped repeatedly) the Desert Sled even has a “reinforced off-road frame” and a new swingarm. We don’t know exactly how the frame was reinforced, but it likely has extra gusseting at the tube joints. The swingarm is visibly thicker and beefier than the one fitted on the other Scrambler models, though we don’t know if it’s any longer. At 59.3 inches the wheelbase is several inches longer than on other Scrambler models, but we’re in the dark as to whether that’s due to a longer swingarm, the taller suspension, or both. In any case, lengthening the wheelbase is also something Ducati did to the Multi Enduro, and it paid big dividends when power-sliding the thing.
