Ducati finally reveals the Desert x

Ducati unveiled the all-new DesertX during the sixth and final episode of their World Premiere 2022 series. Which has been running for a few months. The eagerly anticipated machine is Ducati’s modern interpretation of the iconic Rally Bikes that competed during the Paris-golden Dakar era. Notably, the final design revealed today resembles the concept that sparked such excitement when it debuted in 2019.

Ducati Desert x: Engine and Suspension

The DesertX is powered by a 937 cc liquid-cooled Testastretta 11° Desmodromic valvetrain engine. That produces 110 horsepower at 9,250 rpm and 68 pound-feet of torque at 6,500 rpm. This engine incorporates all of the Multistrada V2’s improvements, such as the light and compact 8-disc clutch and the gearbox. This also helps to reduce total engine weight by 3.7 lb (1.7 kg) over the previous version.

The DesertX has a steel trellis frame, 9.1 inches of front suspension travel, and 8.7 inches of rear suspension travel, as well as a 21″/18″ tubeless spoked wheel combo shod with Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres. It also has a tough 46mm fork with a dirt-friendly rake of 27.6° and a long 63.3-inch wheelbase, so it should feel planted during aggressive off-road riding. There’s also plenty of ground clearance available, with 9.8 inches.

Ducati Desert x: Fuel Tank

A fuel tank capacity of 5.54 gallons (21 l) and the ability to mount a rear tank (available as an accessory) for an additional 2.1 gallons (8 l) of fuel, for a total capacity of 7.7 gallons, provide sufficient range for longer journeys (29 l). When the main tank’s fuel level falls below a certain threshold, fuel transfer from the rear to the front tank is enabled and can be activated from the dashboard. The DesertX also has a large load capacity of 528 pounds, making it ideal for transporting luggage as well as a passenger on long trips.

Desert x: Other Features

The lighting system, which is entirely LED, also boasts high-tech features. The one-of-a-kind double front headlight has two twin-function poly-ellipsoidal modules with Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and is designed to provide excellent visibility, which is especially important for a motorcycle designed to travel in a variety of conditions. The rear light is equipped with the Ducati Brake Light, a system that activates the flashing of the brake light to alert following vehicles in the event of sudden braking, increasing rider safety even further.
