Like many purposeful adventure tourers, the Ducati DesertX Rally also comes with a 21-inch front wheel and an 18-inch rear wheel, with both being spoke units. The tyres offered as standard over these spoke wheels are 90/90-21 at the front and 150/70 R18 at the rear, with both being tube-type Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres.

Complementing the rugged and tough design and abilities of the Ducati DesertX Rally as a hardcore adventure tourer, the Pirelli Scorpion Rally STR tyres feature a new silica-rich compound. This exclusive compound increases the grip levels of the DesertX Rally on both wet and dry surfaces while offering superior abrasion resistance. This tube-type Pirelli tyre for the Ducati DesertX Rally also has an increased width and length of the contour and tread blocks, eventually increasing the grip levels.
