On the road
Voted for off-road use, I found it a bit soft riding on blacktop. A considerable ground clearancepaired with suspensions with a generous travel guarantee safe and fun riding. The long swingarm, allows power to be released without losing traction and certainly helped by knobby tires made for the purpose.
Braking is good and effective supported by a 330 mm 4-piston front disc with radial connection.
I really liked the engine, the 800 cc 73 hp twin-cylinder engine, is docile, and gas can be well dosed even on rough terrain. If you accelerate at low speed with a high gear, it doesn’t pipe-bangand goes up quickly.
The sprint is good, and you can insist with the same gear, without suffering.
I loved the Desert Sled, especially off road. Scrambler style with light vintage touch, paired with soft lines and the most modern material technology. Motorcycle that offers fun even to the less experienced riders and allows for emotion-laden journeys without using conventional roads.
