Dutch had high hopes for the Scrambler Ducati Desert Sled, it appears they've finally built the bike he was hoping for two years ago.

The press launch location might have been the backdrop to many a spaghetti western but the Ducati team weren't messing around with the off-road route.

We raced against the super fast Anvil Motociclette guys last week at Snow Quake, and these pics show that they're also a bit handy with the tools.

Based on the Scrambler Ducati Sixty2 is it may only displace 400cc but with all but the essentials removed it must be a riot off-road. Whether it be ice or sand.

Images by Luciano Consolini|Photography and the bike is featured in full on Pipeburn.

Dutch has always had a soft spot for Ducatis but it was going to take more than clever marketing to win him over when it came to the Scrambler.

He joined the press launch in Almeria to find out if the Scrambler Ducati Desert Sled is more than just the sum of its new parts. After 45kms of serious trail riding and some of the best roads Spain has to offer his thoughts, views and a stack of...

Riding adventure bikes needn't be a plastic clad, generic affair. Ton-Up Garage from Portugal stretched an R80 tank to fit this 1200cc desert basher and gave it a retro makeover, in preparation for Scram Africa.
Full details over on the Bike Shed.

Please someone buy this gorgeous Ossa before Ross sees it and clutters up our restaurant with even more race bikes.

Despite his apparent inability to stay upright on a motorcycle Ross thought it'd be a good idea to try ice racing! Sideburn Magazine's Snow Quake is in its second year and the grids were packed with some rare bikes, LOADS of spikes and plenty of MacGyver engineering.

Word from a frigid northern Italy is that he had an absolute blast....and didn't crash once! A medal awaits.
Two 4th places...

Sadly not all of the helmets survived the making of our recent NEXX Helmets X. Garage Gear Guide feature - they were raced, crashed in (multiple times...) and racked up many miles on the road. To top it off yesterday we checked out the mud adhesion qualities of one of the 2017 colour ways... Check the full copy on [ Thebikeshed.cc Link ]

News In Brief. Ducati's new Desert Sled works, and is the bike they should have brought out back in 2015. Only the tank and engine come from the original bike. A beefed-up frame and long travel suspension, with reinforced pivot for a modified swing arm and narrower seat, with more ground clearance and ride height means this bike is better for bigger riders but it also has genuine trail riding...

Cheap needn't mean cheerful. French brand MASH Motors manufacture low cost, small capacity motorcycles for those on a budget. But that didn't stop the Dutch distributor from donating one for a custom job.

Compatriates Wrench Kings were happy to oblige and put together this striking 'CafeScram' using a Mash 400 Scrambler as a base.

When your latest custom build is due at the Motor Bike Expo in Verona this Friday the very last thing you do is lend it to Ross Sharp

"Some light greenlaning would make for a good film" he told Yamaha Motor

So, here you have it - the latest Yard Build by Rough Crafts. Hopefully it will have dried out by the weekend and show visitors will be able to see Winston Yeh's fantastic...
