The DesertX pays clear homage to the Enduro bikes of the past, but every reference has been reinterpreted by Ducati with the aim of making the bike absolutely contemporary.
Jeremy Faraud, Product Design.
The aesthetic of the DesertX manages to combine the suggestion of homage to the "Dakarians" with a decidedly modern "look and feel". This Adventure bike was designed by the Centro Stile Ducati following the criteria of essentiality and sturdiness. The designers have pushed for a minimalist aesthetic that communicates resistance, once again managing to combine form and function in the best possible way.
The surfaces in contact with the rider are large and well connected, allowing movement in various directions with the highest level of comfort, especially in off-road riding.
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.
