DesertX Rally Technology

Professional off-road suspension
The bike offers an additional 20mm of suspension travel, for a total of 250mm at the front and 240mm at the rear. Both the 48mm closed cartridge front fork and 46mm rear shock are produced in collaboration with KYB. DesertX Rally flaunts a technology used on MX and enduro bikes that guarantees homogeneous behaviour and the necessary support even during the most extreme use.

Lighter, more technical wheels
DesertX Rally is more efficient off-road thanks to wheels that are lighter and more technical, with machined from solid hubs, carbon steel spokes and high-resistance Takasago Excel rims. The front wheel retains its 21”x2.15” size, while the rear is narrower than that of DesertX, measuring 18”x4”.

Lighter components
DesertX Rally is more efficient off-road thanks to its dedicated wheels, carbon sumpguard, and billet aluminium rear brake and gear level. It weighs the same as DesertX (just 1kg more), but the sensation is completely different.

Off-roading soul
DesertX Rally is even more efficient off road equipped with the top-notch off-road componentry. The front brake line is split, to allow for the mounting of the high mudguard. The Öhlins steering damper is adjustable and attached directly to the handlebar.

The gear lever and rear brake pedal are in billet aluminium. The sump guard is in forged carbon, more resistant than the standard version on DesertX and lighter than the version currently available as a Ducati Performance accessory for DesertX.

Mass-coloured plastics
The plastics are mass-coloured and unpainted, so any scratches are a lot less visible. The graphics are adhesive, in thick PVC, to better protect the surfaces of the bike and ensure greater scope for customisation.

The colours and graphics of the new livery take up those of the DesertX with which Antoine Meo triumphed in the Erzbergrodeo Prologue.

DesertX Rally Technical Data

DesertX Rally Design and Styling

Elegant and unique

The sleek surfaces, flowing design and volume difference between the front and rear remain the highly characteristic elements that in the new DesertX Rally reach completely new quality and finishing standards. Another highly characteristic element of the new DesertX Rally S are the Y-shaped 5 spoke wheels.

Overview of DesertX Rally Engine

Dedicated gearshift

No detail has been overlooked in the engine design. The gearbox is also totally dedicated with ratios that make it more versatile. A shorter first gear and a longer sixth gear than the Desmosedici Stradale engine, allow the bike to be adaptable in all situations of use: from off-road, to low-speed maneuvers to riding on the motorway.

Counter-rotating crankshaft

The adoption of the counter-rotating crankshaft - borrowed from the Desmosedici Stradale - allows to significantly reduce the gyroscopic effect that the wheels impart to the vehicle, improving handling and agility and reducing pitching during acceleration and braking. This technical choice improves riding safety and comfort in daily road use or traveling.

Overview of DesertX Rally Chassis


The new DesertX Rally reaches new levels of handling, riding fluidity, intuitiveness and ease of use.

Compact and agile, the frame and chassis have been designed to give an intense feeling of ease of riding and safe stability at high speeds.

Overview of DesertX Rally Equipment


Advanced Connectivity - With the new Ducati Connect system, your phone connects to the bike allowing you to control different actions through the handlebar joystick.

Ducati guarantees all its bikes for a period of 24 months from registration, with unlimited mileage.
