Correct.

I'd really like to understand where the weight is coming from. and I may have to get my hands on a set of those wheels. 19F/17R would be much better to find ADV tires for.

OK, I'm confused... how is this not just an Urban Enduro in new colors? . . don't get me wrong. .I think UE's in new colors is a cool idea. .I just am not seeing the difference otherwise.

Did you look at the link?

Different wheel sizes, tires, adjustable suspension with longer travel, different bars, different seat, different foot pegs.

It's just a more off-road refined bike.

Did they take the urban enduro off the site in replacement for this? I wouldn't mind getting a hold of that suspension, swing arm, and wheels for my mine.

Ive been waiting to buy a scrambler to see what the new bikes looked like. I wanted an UE, should i pick one up new now for $9,600 with 0% financing or wait till spring and buy the Desert Sled for $11,500 + whatever charges they add and take my chances they have good financing through Ducati then. Thoughts? Wet weight on an UE was 423lbs so they've added 25lbs. I was hoping to make the UE as light as possible. The UE is also off the website so I'm guessing its now dead for 2017.

They've beefed up the frame, the front and rear suspension are both longer, the swing arm is larger, the seat is bulkier and the majority of the gain probably comes from those big heavy wheels and chunky tyres.

I like it, will have to take one for a test ride when they get here. Interested to see how it carries the extra weight but the seat height might rule it out for me being a shortarse, even the low seat is 840mm. Also wish they had gone tubeless spoked wheels on it.

I realy like the longer suspension on Desert Sled! I wonder if they can be fitted on my UE. I was thinking about longer suspension a couple of months ago, and yesterday when Desert Sled was introduced I got very excited about this possibility!

:sad3:

Marketing gone amuck imo
We'll see what happens going forward

Sure hope they're working on front wheel conversion kits for 15-16 owners if Pirelli drops the MT60RS
