Unlike its Uraban Enduro variant, the Desert Sled model brings some proper off-roading to the Scrambler brand. The bike has been completely upgraded to meet needs of the segment.

All the changes have pushed the seat height to an impressive 860mm. Moto-cross styled handlebar and fatter foot pegs further improve the off-road ergonomics.
