According to Ducati Motorcycles
DesertX was developed for the most demanding off-road, and therefore has all the essential contents for this type of use: spoked wheels, 21 ” 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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
