    Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled

    Not a true dual sport for sure...but nice to see Ducati building something that is moving in the right direction, something that kind-of-sort-of resembles a real dual sport. I'd definitely buy one if I were rich enough to have lots of bikes. The $12k price tag doesn't help...

    Still, I actually quite like it, and think it would be a fun ride!

    It would be fun till the first time you drop it.... Ducati parts are a tad on the expensive side....
    Pair of 2006 TW's modded to the hilt and a Ducati Multistrada.

    It won't be greed which destroys America. It will be envy.

    An Urban Enduro for the wanna-be crowd. Those 75 horses might need asphalt or very firm desert roads for traction.

    I like my under powered high traction TW for the dirt/logging roads but I could go for the Scrambler/Cafe Racer for the street.

    I really like that kinda bike.

    If it were made by Yamaha, Honda, or Suzuki, (ok, maybe Victory), I'd probably purchase it.
