I love the Desert X concept but it would be a hard sell against the T7 Tenere. A Desert Sled is already 2k more than the T7 and the Desert X would probably have an msrp around 14k.Looks like it is going to be off road focused. Maybe the Desert X show bike has become a production vehicle.

i really hope not. If it is just yet another styling excise it will be very disappointing.
they have a history of doing this
I will agree if it’s only a graphic exercise... but want to be sure that they haven’t improved both suspensions or mounted a steering dumper like on the race one.., anyway, a black high Termignoni was the minimum... and I don’t see it#Underwhelmed
From the regular Scrambler to the Desert Sled, yes, also reinforced the frame as they said. But that was in 2017 when they introduced the DS.I understood they’ve improved the suspensions too... or not?
I may be wrong but this is something that could probably be said from any motorcycle company. Considering that Ducati updated their scramblers in 2019 (hydraulic clutch, cornering abs, more info on the display, and little more..), how much has the BMW GS changed in the past 4 years? or the Africa Twin? I think companies make a significant change every now and then in one of their models but the rest remain unchanged for a while. They keep up with environmental and safety laws and little else...It is getting very boring with this continual update by paint code attitude from Ducati.
I agree that there is little reason! If you own a pre-2019 model it would make some sense to buy a post-2019 model to benefit from the updates mentioned, but it would take a lot of love for the scrambler models not to chose another motorbike from another company. But I guess Ducati trusts in itself, its bikes and the premium name to keep people hooked to the brand. I'm not saying this is good but it has worked for them so far.What actual reason is there for anybody who owns a Scrambler that is two, three or four years old to buy a new one? The reality is that people change their motorcycles reasonably regularly and there is no incentive for anybody to upgrade an older Scrambler to a new one so I assume people drift off to other models. I doubt that owning a Scrambler is a gateway to people buying other Ducati’s.
