Dream Wilder

Exploration. Fun. Performance. And a real craving to set off and head for the horizon. The identity of this bike leaves no doubt: just one look at it will have you dreaming of adventure.

Get Set for Adventure

Equipped with a 21” front and 18” rear wheel, the new DesertX is designed to handle even the most challenging off-road terrain. Ducati has combined its road expertise with dedicated off-road development to create a responsive and manoeuvrable bike that is at ease on all types of trail and asphalt.

  • Off-road Chassis — A 21” front and 18” rear wheel, long stroke suspension, generous ground clearance (9.8 in) and an off-road frame designed and tested to withstand the toughest conditions.
  • Ergonomics for All Conditions — A focus on ergonomics and aerodynamics makes for a motorcycle that is at home off-road and equally comfortable, easy, and safe during everyday use and when travelling.
  • Advanced Electronics for Maximum Versatility — The versatility of DesertX is also reflected in its Riding Modes, all six of them. The Enduro and Rally modes are specifically dedicated 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 11° with desmodromic timing, 3.7 lbs lighter than the previous generation of engine and equipped with a new gear ratio to ensure the very best off-road performance.

Choose Your LOOK

Two finish colors:   RR22   •  or  •   Star White Silk

The new RR22 livery, inspired by that of the Audi RS Q e-tron that participated in the last Dakar, complements the matte Star White Silk color scheme.


The Centro Stile faced a totally new challenge with DesertX, seizing the opportunity to experiment with a new design language and seeking inspiration from the world of African rally raids. The result is a sturdy, clean, modern design, based on shapes from the off-road world. A bike that wants to be robust, solid, and functional at the same time.

CONCEPT: 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

FLYLINE: Essential and Robust — The bike is visually composed of three macro elements: a single central volume, the seat, and the windshield, which incorporates the double headlight. A robust design that blends form and function.

ERGONOMICS: Designed for Comfort — The surfaces in contact with the rider are expansive and well connected, allowing unhindered movement in different directions, particularly during off-road riding.
