Hey Ya'll,
I'm in the market for my first Desert Sled. I am not finding a lot of used local inventory so am considering a new one from my local dealer. I have done some digging and haven't found any real changes to the 2020's from the 2019 models. Anyone know if there are any significant changes? I don't mind paying a little more for the 2020 if there are significant changes but if they didn't change much I think my dealer has worked me up a pretty good deal on a 2019. Thanks for your time, I am new to this thing so appreciate any info. Thanks again.

From previous to 2019 there were a lot of changes that for me where important like cornering abs softer seat hidraulic clutch and many other small things. But the 2020 it's practically the same.

Ducati refreshed the whole Scrambler line for 2019, not just the DS. If you’re looking to buy soon, I would pick up a 19/20 model instead. I think creature comfort updates are worth it if you don’t already have a DS.

The factory wheels are not tubeless but can be converted to be. Do a search and you’ll find a few topics on the conversion using tape and other materials.

I wondered if they upgraded to tubeless. My 2018 model is tube so the same is for the red chassis Desert Sled.

Yes I know there are many solutions. Maybe the 19-17 wheels from a Multistrada 950 could do the trick but I am eager to go for 21-18 with Earle motors wheelbase extender if it ever becomes available but until then...

I set the rear wheel up tubeless and it works great. I have not converted the front yet, but it is on the list to do.

Is there a change regarding the manufacturer of the forks and the rear shock? I watched an italian video and the reviewer was saying that the front forks are Showa...

Have they changed the air filter position? I read somewhere that the 2019 model is harder to get the air filter out...
