In 2019, the Italian manufacturer revealed the Desert X concept, which caused a strong reaction among fans. Since then, the project has been finalized and prepared for production as a competitor for the Honda iconic Africa Twin.
The Desert X Concept was unveiled under the Scrambler Ducati brand with an air-cooled 1079cc engine. Much has changed since then. The motorcycle, which is expected to premiere on December 9, is under the Ducati brand. A 21-inch front wheel and an 18-inch rear wheel are planned, and a liquid-cooled 937cc Testastretta engine will replace the outdated engine. The same unit is installed on the Hypermotard 950 and Multistrada 950. From a design point of view, changes are expected to be minimal in comparison with the crankcase, of course.
Turenduro Ducati DesertX could be a real bomb if Italians can make more than 115 hp bike weighing up to 225 kg.
