It should run on an 85hp, 1,079cc engine
The off-road-focused 2021 Scrambler Desert Sled should be powered by a 1,079cc, L-twin, air-cooled engine that generates 85.5hp of power at 7,500rpm and 88Nm of peak torque at 4,750rpm. The mill should be linked to a 6-speed gearbox.
Disc brakes on both the wheels will ensure safety
To ensure the rider's safety, the new scrambler should be equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels along with dual-channel ABS for improved handling on the roads.
Suspension duties on the motorcycle should be taken care of by 46mm USD forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit by Kayaba on the rear end.
