DesertX - Let's Adventure
The most versatile Ducati yet.
The Ducati DesertX will for many conjure up images of the Ducati powered Cagiva Elephant of old. That is where the similarities end…. Designed and built using the latest cutting edge technology, the Ducati DesertX offers the widest range of uses of any Ducati built to date. Very much at home on the roads, the DesertX also offers the capability of letting out your more adventurous side. The 21″/18″ wheel combination gives the Ducati DesertX the ability to tackle the most rugged of terrains. With 6 pre-set rider modes: Sport, Touring, Urban, Wet, Enduro and Rally all of which get differing levels of power, traction, wheelie control, ABS etc that can all be re-tailored to suit your own requirements. Now with a 4 year factory warranty valid Europe wide – What’s not to like!
DesertX is Adventurous
Perfect harmony between weight, performance and agility.
Ducati really wanted to broaden its audience for the DesertX. Seat height starts at 875mm but can be reduced with either a lower seat option or a suspension lowering kit or even a combination of both which are available as accessory options. The narrow seat and bodywork ensure that these seat heights translate into real benefits for the rider. The Ducati DesertX offers an upright riding position with considerably more leg room for added comfort and manoeuvrability when riding out of the seat. The steering angle makes low speed manoeuvring a doddle. The electronic package can be extended with the addition of the Ducati Multimedia system that allows Bluetooth pairing to your smartphone, allowing for calls, notifications, music management and for the addition of turn by turn sat nav guidance. All lights / indicators are Full LED.
Iconic design revived
The volumes, silhouette, tank and headlight characterise the design of the Original Cagiva Elephant and remain true to the original lines of the bike born over 3 decades ago while revisiting them with a modern flair. The 21 liter tank offers exceptional range, however there is scope to add an additional 8 litre tank (which is another accessory item that is available) to ensure that the Ducati DesertX can explore the areas that others can only dream of.
Testastretta 11° engine
Fluid delivery, full and increased torque curve
Thanks to high maximum power and torque values, fluid delivery and a full torque curve at all speeds, the new DesertX’s Watercooled Testastretta 11° engine can guarantee performance and agility to the rider. 110 bhp, with 68 ft lb of torque, this powerplant oozes versatility. Maintenance intervals – 9000 miles or bi-annual for oil service, 18,000 miles for valve clearance service. “Adventurous” intervals………
