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 21 “front wheel and 18” rear, long stroke suspension and a new frame designed specifically for the off-road experience.
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.
Technology for the adventure of a lifetime.
We worked by drawing on the best of our knowledge in terms of ergonomics, engine, aerodynamics and electronics. And we developed a new specific chassis for off-road.
DesertX is functional, a ‘sport tool’, competent, technologically advanced and effective like all Ducatis.
