In the interim, many a Scrambler have been beaten, battered, and bruised by riders asking them to be something they’re not. Like, say, dirt bikes. Problem there was that the Scrambler’s swingarm and frame weren't designed for the abuse, and plunging back to terra firma generally led to cracks in places where, well, you don’t want cracks. On the Desert Sled, a pair of plates hug the engine and support the swingarm—which itself is reinforced and longer—so jumps won’t lead it to the same fate. The frame is reinforced, the spoked front wheel is now 19 inches, and the footpegs are bigger, too, for fancier footwork as you work your way down a trail.
