To celebrate Jordan Graham's victory at the Hooligan Class of the Mint 400 last year, Scrambler Ducati presents the limited and 800-units only Desert Sled Fasthouse. This is in collaboration with the American clothing brand, Fasthouse.
The new Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled Fasthouse was presented by Jason Chinnock, CEO of Ducati North America and Kenny Alexander, founder and president of Fasthouse, in a video shot inside the Fasthouse headquarters in California. The model will be available in US dealerships from the end of March 2021.
This limited-edition Scrambler Ducati Desert Sled Fasthouse will feature a special livery, which is the same livery of the Desert Sleds that took part in last year’s Mint 400 competition.
The main colors are black and grey, which combines in a geometric design on the tank, on which the Fasthouse logo is inserted alongside the Ducati Scrambler one. The frame is in Ducati Red and is embellished with an aluminum plate bearing the number of the bike within the limited series. This makes each one of the 800 units to be produced unique. The front and rear mudguards are black.
The Ducati Scrambler Fasthouse is powered by the same 803cc engine of Ducati Scramblers and is equipped with all the characteristic elements of the Ducati “Land of Joy” Desert Sled models. The swingarm, the triple clamps and the bespoke suspension make this model perfect for those who want to experience great adventures on off-road trails, just like those at the Nevada desert that, each year, are the scene for the Mint 400. The inclination to the off-road universe is underlined by the chassis, 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 riding position is customized, thanks to the saddle with a non-slip coating that keeps the seat height at 860 mm, the adjustable Kayaba suspension with 200 mm of travel and the off-road inspired footpegs with removable rubber pads. The black spoked wheels measure 19-inch at the front and 17-inch at the rear and are fitted with Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires. The Scorpion Rally STR combines the best performance of an off-road tire with that of an enduro street tire.
The collaboration between the Land of Joy and Fasthouse in this special project also includes the launch of a capsule collection of apparel, created specifically for the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled Fasthouse. The collection consists of 4 elements: short-sleeved t-shirt, long-sleeved t-shirt, jacket and cap, all made with high-quality fabrics, 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.
