NEW RELEASE! Ducati Desert X Rally!!!

POSTED: 04/10/2023

Exploration with supreme performance

DesertX Rally is a high-performance machine, designed to cross desert, rock and forest and satisfy your desire to conquer. This blog will be covering the highlights of the magnificent new beast that is the Desert X Rally!


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.


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.


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”.


Off Road

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. 


Paint work

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.

Sheffield Motorcycle Centre Ltd  is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Sheffield Motorcycle Centre Ltd  to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
