Dream Wilder

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. 

 

Off-road chassis

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 optimized 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.

 

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. 

 

Post-heritage minimal

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

 

Essential and robust

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.

 

Designed for comfort

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.

 

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. 

 

Chassis

DesertX was developed for the most demanding off-road, and therefore has all the essential contents for this type of use: spoked wheels21'' at the front and 18'' at the rear and generous ground clearance. Thanks to the various homologations obtained, DesertX has various types of tires available, up to those dedicated to the off-road world. 


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 250 mm

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 tires

The DesertX is equipped with Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tubeless tires 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 tires.


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.

 

Engine

The new DesertX is equipped with the latest evolution of the water-cooled 937 cc Desmodromic 11° Testastretta engine with 110 horsepower and 92 Nm of torque.

It’s the well-known twin cylinder already appreciated on our other models for its double soul: very manageable and smooth at low revs, but with a torque that is always ready and able to release all the Ducati character with a great extension. 

 

1.7 kg lighter

The new version of the Testastretta 11 ° introduces important improvements over the previous generation, which have led to an overall weight saving of 1.7 kg.

 

Reliable in different uses

Reliable and also designed for touring use, the engine has very long maintenance intervals, with oil change every 15,000 km and valve clearance check every 30,000 km.

 

Wide gear ratio

The work on the DesertX gearshift also involved the ratios, which were shortened overall for greater efficiency at high speed.

 

Riding mode

The versatility of DesertX is also reflected in the Riding modes: up to six options, two of which are specifically dedicated to the off-road riding experience.

 

Riding assistance systems

The electronic equipment is completed by the package of riding assistance systems: Traction control, Wheelie control, Engine brake control, cornering ABS, Quickshifter up & down and Cruise control, to make riding on long journeys even more relaxing.

 

Lighting system

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.

 

TFT & Connectivity

DesertX is equipped with a high resolution 5 ”color TFT display oriented vertically and positioned to offer the best visibility even in standing riding. This display is designed for integration with the Ducati Multimedia System which allows you to connect your smartphone via Bluetooth and activate Turn by Turn navigation by receiving directions directly on the dashboard.
