Ducati has confirmed that it will unveil the production version of the Scrambler DesertX in December 2021. In fact, the company will start revealing new models for next year, starting September 30, 2021.
Ducati to unveil production version of Scrambler DesertX in December 2021
Ducati has confirmed that it will unveil the production version of the Scrambler DesertX off-road motorcycle in December 2021. It was during EICMA 2019 that Ducati unveiled the Scrambler DesertX as a concept motorcycle, but then confirmed that the motorcycle would go into production. in about a year. Of course, the delay can be reduced due to the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic threw the proverbial key in the works and the best-laid plans have gone wrong! But nonetheless, in December 2021, Ducati will have a competent off-roader in its ranks, at least that’s what Ducati says.

The DesertX motorcycle would be inspired by the iconic Ducati motorcycles that took part in rally raids in the 1990s, such as the Paris-Dakar. Ducati says the retro-style scrambler is developed to cover long distances and will be able to tackle all kinds of difficult terrain. It is of course presented as a real all-terrain vehicle.

Design-wise, the motorcycle concept comes across as having solid off-road credentials with its high stance, with a large windshield and two round LED headlights and a muscular tank with crisp, crisp lines. One of the big highlights of the concept bike were the two fuel tanks, which have a total capacity of 30 liters.

The production model cannot have two fuel tanks. In terms of equipment, the bike is likely to have a 21-inch front wheel and an 18-inch rear wheel, both spoke, Pirelli Scorpion Rally spoked tires, and long-travel suspension with some form of setting. The concept bike had a ground clearance of 275mm and we would expect the Scrambler DesertX to have a similar ground clearance.
When unveiled in 2019, the Ducati Scrambler DesertX Concept would be powered by a 1,079cc L-Twin engine tuned to produce around 84bhp and paired with a 6-speed gearbox. We expect the updated Scrambler 1100 engine to power the production model.
