Ducati’s DesertX adventure bike has been making waves in the off-road ADV segment since its launch earlier this year, and now the manufacturer has added some extra excitement with the introduction of the RR22 livery. This new design was originally created as an exclusive one-off colorway for a track day event put together with Audi and ex-Moto GP star Danilo Petrucci in Sardinia. However, its popularity has led to it becoming a standard option for DesertX.
Inspired by the Audi RS Q e-tron, the DesertX RR22 livery features a black, gray, and red color scheme with graphics that nod to the advanced technology of the electric-drivetrain vehicle. The styling package is completed with a splash of red integrated into the black saddle. Despite its eye-catching design, the DesertX still packs a punch with its tried and true 937cc Testastretta engine, which produces 110 horsepower, and its 21”/18” wheels, generous ground clearance, and 9.1”/8.7” of front and rear suspension travel.
In addition to its stunning appearance, the DesertX also comes equipped with a full suite of state-of-the-art rider aids and premium braking by Brembo. It even has an optional rear tank that adds an additional 2.1 gallons of fuel to its 5.54-gallon standard capacity. The new DesertX RR22 livery joins the original White Silk color scheme with an MSRP of $18,295, a premium of $1,200 over the base model.
If you’re in the market for a high-performance adventure bike with a unique and innovative design, the Ducati DesertX RR22 is well worth considering. For more information, visit ducati.com.
