Look Good and Go Fast on the Scrambler Ducati Desert Sled Fasthouse

Off-road riding and Italian motorbikes are a classy combination. Throw Fasthouse, the clothing brand that took Jordan Graham to victory in the Hooligan class of the Mint 400, into the mix and you get one sharp looking motorbike. 

Scrambler Ducati introduced the Desert Sled Fasthouse on a limited edition run of 800 units. Starting with the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled base, the Fasthouse model is distinguished by its special graphics. The black and grey palette is reminiscent of the bikes that took part in the Mint 400 and the frame looks extra sharp in Ducati Red. Each frame is embellished with an aluminum plate bearing the number of the bike within the limited series, so you can feel extra special every time you go for a ride.

Powered by the 803 cc engine and equipped with all the characteristic elements of the Desert Sled, the Fasthouse is perfect for off-road adventuring. Running on black spoked wheels with a high fender and skidplate, the Fasthouse’s chassis is specifically designed to cope with the stresses of off-road use.


The saddle has a non-slip coating and a seat height of 860mm, the adjustable Kayaba suspension has 200 mm of travel, and the dirt inspired foot pegs have removable rubber pads.

Considering that Fasthouse is a clothing company, the Desert Sled Fasthouse has a matching line of accessories that includes t-shirts, a jacket, and a hat. So, when you’re not ripping through the Nevada desert (which is, of course, what this bike wants you to do) you can at least dress up in some moto-inspired gear and dream up your next ride.
