Continuing the legacy of Ducati’s lineage, the DesertX Rally exudes a distinctive and unmatched style, instantly captivating onlookers with its new design and off-road capabilities. However, it’s the advanced technology within that truly sets the Rally apart as a formidable off-road machine.

Equipped with a high front mudguard tailored for rugged terrain and Kayaba suspension borrowed from motocross, featuring enhanced travel with a closed cartridge fork and shock absorber equipped with a larger piston, riders can confidently tackle any obstacle.

Complemented by newly designed central-spoked wheels optimized for off-road racing, the Rally excels across diverse landscapes. Further enhancing its durability are lightweight forged carbon components such as the sump guard, gear pedals, and rear brake lever, all meticulously crafted for the most extreme adventures.

Bipul Chandra, Managing Director of Ducati India, expressed excitement about the launch, stating, “As Ducati continues to redefine off-road riding, we are thrilled to introduce the DesertX Rally to the Indian market. With its unmatched blend of style, technical innovation, and off-road prowess, the DesertX Rally will revolutionize the riding experience for off-road enthusiasts nationwide, transcending limits as the ultimate off-road motorcycle.”
