Ducati India on Monday announced the launch of the DesertX motorcycle at a starting price of RS 17,91,000 (ex-showroom, India). The bike has been designed for off-roading to places such as desert dunes, narrow off-road paths, gravel roads as well as mountainous twisties. Bookings for the bike have been opened across all Ducati dealerships in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Kochi, Kolkata and Chennai. Deliveries for the bike will commence in the first week of January.

Design language

In terms of aesthetics, Ducati DesertX seems to be a modern interpretation of the lines of the enduro motorcycles of the ‘80s, created by the Centro Stile Ducati. The bike rides on 21-inch front wheels, giving the DesertX a bold and adventurous look. The windshield merges with the headlamp and the double full-LED DRL, designed on its surface.
