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. 

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.

Features

  • Off-road chassis: 21” front and 18” rear wheels, long stroke suspension, generous ground clearance (9.8 in) 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 3.7 lb compared to the previous generation and equipped with a new gear ratio to ensure the best off-road behavior.
  • 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.
