or pay $115.00* per week.
Exploration. Fun. Performance. And a great desire to take and leave towards the horizon. The identity of this bike leaves no room for doubt: just looking at it, it brings you into the atmosphere of Dakar racing. DesertX is the first modern Ducati with a 21" front wheel and 18" rear, long stroke suspension and a new frame designed specifically for the off-road experience.
21 ”front and 18” rear wheels, long stroke suspension, generous ground clearance (250mm) and an off-road frame designed and tested to withstand the toughest conditions.
Ergonomics optimised for every condition
Ergonomics and aerodynamic study give life to a motorcycle that has off-road as a natural territory and at the same time remains comfortable, easy and safe for urban commuting and long travels.
Advanced electronics, dedicated to versatility
The versatility of DesertX is also reflected in the Riding Modes: there's 6 of them, with Enduro and Rally dedicated specifically to the off-road riding experience.
Lightweight engine tuned for off-road use
DesertX is equipped with the latest evolution of the 937 cc Testastretta 11th desmo, lighter by 1.7 kg compared to the previous generation and equipped with a new gear ratio to ensure the best off-road behavior.
Design: Post-heritage and digital
DesertX presented a completely new challenge to the Centro Stile. The opportunity to experiment with a new design language, seeking inspiration in the history of African Rally. The result is a solid, clean, modern design, based on shapes taken from the most adventurous off-road world. It is a bike that wants to be solid and functional at the same time.
The aesthetic of DesertX manages to combine the suggestion of the "Dakarians" with an almost touch interface feeling. It is post-heritage and digital at the same time. The bike is visually composed of 3 macro elements: a single central volume, the saddle and the windshield that integrates the double headlight. A “Robust Design” effect that combines form and function. The surfaces in contact with the rider are wide and well connected, allowing movement in various directions with the highest level of comfort, especially in off-road riding.
Electronics: Configure your adenture
DesertX, like all Ducati models, has advanced electronics for safety and performance in all conditions.
6 Riding Modes
The versatility of the DesertX is also reflected in its Riding Modes. It has 6 modes, 2 of which are specifically dedicated to the off-road riding experience: Enduro and the brand new Rally Mode, in addition to the Sport, Touring, Urban e Wet modes.
The Flexibility of the riders assistance package
The electronic equipment is completed by a package of rider assistance systems: Traction Control, Wheelie Control, Engine Brake Control, Cornering ABS, Quickshifter Up & Down and Cruise Control, to make long distance riding even more relaxing.
Full Led Lighting equipment
The bike’s completely Full LED lighting system equipment is of the highest level. The double front headlight has two bi-function polyellipsoidal modules with Daytime Running Light (DRL) and has been designed to ensure excellent visibility, which is particularly important for a bike that can ride in all conditions. The rear headlight is equipped with the Ducati Brake Light. The system, in the event of sudden braking, automatically activates the flashing of the rear light to signal the condition of sudden slowing to following vehicles, making a further contribution to rider safety.
Display and Connectivity
The DesertX is equipped with a 5" TFT color display ready for integration with the Ducati Multimedia System (and oriented vertically to offer the best visibility even when riding standing up.
Chassis: The Versatile Sport-Tool
The DesertX is a versatile bike: it has been specifically developed to cope with the most demanding off-road riding, but it is also safe and comfortable for touring, and at home on everyday trails.
21"/18" wheel combination
DesertX is equipped with the iconic wheel combination for the enduro segment: spoked wheels, 21'' at the front and 18'' at the rear. Ready to easily tackle any type of obstacle and asphalt.
Generous ground clearance
A fundamental feature for off-road use, DesertX has a ground clearance of 250 mm, which is particularly favorable for more extreme off-road riding.
Wide choice of tyres
The DesertX is equipped with Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tubeless tyres that combine greater reliability and safety in case of puncture with easier repair. Thanks to the different approvals obtained, there is a wide choice of alternative tyres.
Kayaba long stroke suspension
The 46mm upside-down fork and fully adjustable single shock absorber were developed with the Japanese brand Kayaba, a successful producer in the off-road world.
Take your wildest dreams and make them come true. Bring some friends and get ready to enjoy the adventure of a lifetime. DesertX will take you all the way, having been ridden by a champion of the calibre of Antoine Méo.
