This bike takes its inspiration from Ducati’s iconic motorcycles that were seen in the Rally Raids in the 90s. The new DesertX takes the golden past of Ducati and splashes it with modern elegance and technology.


Being inspired by the 90s bike, the DesertX gets the same twin headlamp set up. But the new iteration gets LED lights and DRLs as well.

The fairings on the sides are small and give the bike a barer and more rustic look. The muscular fuel tank also carries the rustic look along with it. The bike also gets under-carriage protection.
