I am super excited about the Desert Sled, and I'm going to go put down a deposit on one. I really didn't expect Ducati to make a variant like the Desert Sled, and was thinking I'd have my Icon for many many years. I love it for what it is, and it's so much fun. That said, if I were to improve things, it'd be a lot of the things they've done on the DS; like a better suspension with more travel, more ground clearance, less touchy throttle at the low end (which they pointed out they worked on), more aggressive tires (which you can't really get for the Icon, other than TKC-80's where you run a rear tire on the front), taller front wheel, taller seat height (I'm 6' tall), and a heavier duty frame setup in general. They also done me a huge favor and clearly used some of the height and lower frame to drop the foot pegs, which will greatly improve the riding position for me! It's almost like Ducati was listening to people?
