Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali said 2021 was a magical year for Ducati.
"We delivered over 59,000 motorcycles, a number never achieved before in 95 years of the company's history.
"We also won the title of MotoGP Constructors' World Champion for the second consecutive year, and we started the electric era of our company with the V21L prototype, which foresees the bike that will race in the MotoE championship from 2023.
"The pandemic, which is still underway, in addition to generating so much suffering, has also made activities more complex, forcing us to conduct a continuous internal reorganisation," he said.
Domenicali said the DesertX would be an extremely attractive proposal for adventure fans this year.
The DesertX is designed to tackle the most demanding off-roads with 21-inch front and 18-inch rear wheels, long suspension travel and ample ground clearance.
