Buyer's Guide > Scrambler Desert Sled
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The Scrambler Desert Sled pays homage to the big-bore offroad bikes of the 1960s and 1970s, as piloted by such heros as Steve McQueen and the Ekins brothers. This machine has little in common with those svelte race winners, but it is certainly much better-suited to offroading than the rest of the Scrambler line, with upgraded suspension and chassis. For 2019, it gets leaning ABS that can also be turned off for riding in the dirt. There's new LED lighting, a new frame, new tires, and an updated seat.
