2023 Ducati DesertX Review – First Ride

Thankfully, the production version doesn’t fall far from Jeremy Faraud’s initial Desert X Scrambler concept in terms of looks. The 2023 DesertX is nearly as stunning in person as the concept I was fortunate enough to lay eyes upon in the halls of the Fiera Milano nearly three years ago. Obvious nods to Ducati-powered bikes of the 1990s can be found in the styling, but with a neo-retro tinge to the entire thing.
