With its Desert-X motorcycle, Ducati has ventured into the world of Adventure. Having first straightened up in 2015 with its Scrambler series, the firm is taking it further by introducing new models on this retro platform.
Not to miss out on this wave of distinctive motorcycle design, Exan has also crafted a new exhaust system that delivers special exhaust notes and looks perfect on the Desert-X.
If you love the Ducati Desert-X but think its stock exhaust is too tame and looks a little too pseudo-ADV, we have something that’ll suit your tastes. Exan has developed an X-Rally exhaust system for the Desert-X with a 937cc Testastretta 11-degree L-Twin engine. It makes 110 horsepower and 92 Nm of torque.
The X-Rally Exhaust system produces more performance and efficiency by reducing back pressure. Increased gas flow at medium revs helps the two-stroke to perform better and produces a pleasing sound.
The old classic look of dirt motorcycle pipes inspires the X-Rally Exhaust. We’re talking about straight pipes looking good in stock form — that fantastic sparkly finish to the muffler, which is just another part of the bike and doesn’t detract from customisation or make the exhaust or bike look out of place when in stock trim.
You can choose titanium, carbon, titanium, stainless steel, and black stainless steel. However, the heat shield gets a black colour even if you choose the carbon version.
Everything to fit the product is included in the package: Link pipe to the original manifold, slip-on silencer, fitting kit with included: springs, screws, bracket, high-temperature stickers to use on the exhaust, specific ECE homologation paper for the motorbike model.
It has 24 months guarantee and comes with the EURO 5 approved / street legal version.
The guys at Exan have been putting out top-notch products ever since they started, and the X-Rally exhaust is just another example. If you’re looking for more performance from your motorcycle, this may be the exhaust for you.
As for the price, they come at € 418,50 (Approx USD 440). However, the leading Italian motorcycle web magazine, Motociclismo, has mentioned low prices for €366 (about USD 389) for the light-coloured stainless model and €381 (about USD 405) for the unique finishes.
