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.
Equipped with a 21-inch front wheel and 18-inch rear wheel, the new DesertX is designed to handle even the most challenging off-road terrain. Dedicated off-road development combined with Ducati’s road expertise result in a responsive and maneuverable bike that is at ease on all types of trails and asphalt.
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 comfortThe 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.
New RR22 livery is inspired by that of the Audi RS Q e-tron
The new RR22 livery is inspired by that of the Audi RS Q e-tron that participated in the last Dakar. Seen for the first time during the International Press Launch in Sardinia on the DesertX ridden by Danilo Petrucci, it will join the Matt Star White Silk color scheme at Ducati’s European dealerships from November.
