In The Packaging Valley and Motor Valley, there are leading companies that are not afraid of the crisis due to the Covid Pandemic. In this area, the culture of innovation is in the DNA of people and companies themselves.
The cumulative loss to global GDP over 2020 and 2021 from the pandemic crisis could be around 9 trillion dollars, greater than the economies of Japan and Germany, combined.
This is a truly global crisis as no country is spared. Countries reliant on tourism, travel, hospitality, and entertainment for their growth are experiencing particularly large disruptions. Emerging markets and developing economies face additional challenges with unprecedented reversals in capital flows as global risk appetite wanes, and currency pressures, while coping with weaker health systems, and more limited fiscal space to provide support. Moreover, several economies entered this crisis in a vulnerable state with sluggish growth and high debt levels.
Given this situation, it is even more impressive to know that there are companies in the industrial district of The Packaging Valley and The Motor Valley that continues to grow, make profits, and introduce new models.
This is the case of Ducati which continues to grind positive results and present new successful products such as the New Scrambler Ducati Desert Sled Fasthouse.
New Scrambler Ducati Desert Sled Fasthouse | Ducati World Première 2021 Special Episode
Scrambler Ducati presents the limited and numbered edition Desert Sled Fasthouse model: a motorcycle created to celebrate the collaboration between Ducati Scrambler and the American clothing brand Fasthouse, which in 2020 took the rider, Jordan Graham, to victory in the Hooligan class of the Mint 400, the oldest and most prestigious off-road race in America.
The Ducati Scrambler Fasthouse is powered by the 803 cc engine and is equipped with all the characteristic elements of the Ducati “Land of Joy” Desert Sled models. The swingarm, the triple clamps, and the bespoke suspension make this model perfect for those who want to experience great adventures on off-road trails, just like those of the Nevada desert that each year is the scene for the Mint 400. The inclination to the off-road universe is underlined by the chassis, specifically designed to cope with the stresses of off-road use, as well as by the presence of a homologated grille for the front headlight, high mudguards, and the skid plate.
The new Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled Fasthouse was presented by Jason Chinnock (CEO Ducati North America) and Kenny Alexander (founder and president of Fasthouse) in a video shot inside the Fasthouse headquarters in California. The model will be available in dealerships from the end of March in a limited and numbered series of 800 units.
