Ducati, in association with US clothing brand Fasthouse, has unveiled a limited-run Desert Sled Fasthouse scrambler bike. Its production is limited to 800 units.

Design: The bike has a full-LED lighting setup
Ducati Desert Sled Fasthouse sits on a red chassis and comes with a black and gray colored sloping fuel tank, a flat-type seat with non-slip covers, a pronounced beak, and short twin exhausts.

To ensure the safety of the rider, the Ducati Desert Sled Fasthouse is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for better handling on the roads.
Suspension duties on the motorcycle are taken care of by 46mm fully-adjustable USD forks on the front side and a Kayaba shock absorber with adjustable pre-load on the rear end.
