Ducati has officially revealed its new DesertX off-road motorcycle, a robust and stylish offering inspired by the Dakar Rally and Enduro motorcycles of the 80s, following a widespread positive response to its concept model in 2019.

The DesertX utilizes an all-new steel trellis chassis and is fitted with a 21-inch front and 18-inch rear rims with Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tires. While Enduro and Rally modes are dedicated specifically to off-road riding, other modes are available for easy and comfortable riding during commutes. A 5-inch TFT display allows for the easy adjustment of rider aids including engine break control, traction control wheelie control, and ABS cornering.  In comparison to the Multistrada 1260 Enduro which was Ducati’s previous staple off-road bike, the DesertX is $5000 USD cheaper and weighs 50 pounds less while sporting an upscale clean and modern aesthetic.

The Ducati DesertX starts at $16,795 USD, and can now be configured on the Ducati website. The bikes will arrive in dealerships beginning in June of 2022. Explore the new offering in the in-depth introductory video below.
