After multiple stunning launches, Ducati has concluded the Ducati World Premiere 2022 with a bang and launched the much anticipated DesertX adventure motorcycle. With a bold twin-pot LED headlamp design, this retro ADV is both charming and purpose-built to go off the beaten path.Powered by a 937cc Testastretta V-Twin derived from the Multistrada V2, this potent motor makes 110 bhp of power and a hefty 92 Nm of torque. Unlike the Multistrada V2, the engine is tuned for more offroad riding in the DesertX and should have a more usable powerband for offroad.To further aid the rider on bad terrain, the DesertX comes equipped with a set of 21-inch wire-spoke wheels in the front and 18-inch wire-spoke wheels in the back, a setup that is not even found on the much larger Multistrada 1260 Enduro. It also gets an impressive 230 mm of travel on its front forks, 220 mm of travel for its rear shock and a tall 250 mm of ground clearance.Unfortunately, all of this translates to a rather tall 875 mm seat height that won’t be very accomodating for everyone. Even with an accessory lower seat, we don’t imagine this number going down by a considerable margin.On the electronic front, we can expect the DesertX to be armed to the teeth with a whole host of goodies such as riding modes, an IMU, traction control and a few more that haven’t yet been disclosed.In typical Ducati fashion, all of these electronics can be accessed via a 5-inch TFT dash that can also be paired with Bluetooth connectivity. With a weight of 223 kgs and a fuel capacity of 21-litres, the DesertX promises to be a handy tool that can help you venture deeper into the unknown. Other tidbits will include heated grips, auxiliary lights, aluminium panniers and an 8-litre auxiliary fuel tank.
