I’m besides myself with excitement as you can well imagine. My Desert X arrives Wednesday next week.
I’m from Somerset West, South Africa which is about a 35 min drive from Cape Town.
I own a few bikes amongst others a T7 which is currently a bit broken after I had a fall.
Here to many stories, questions and photos!

Welcome to the forum @JJ le Roux!

What other bikes were you considering before going with the Desert X?

Are you planning to get modifications and/or accessories for it?

Would love to see pics of your X on delivery day!
I own a T7 which I really enjoy. Before that I had a 790 adventure R. The list goes on but this is just in the last 2.5 years. I own a couple of classic BM’s.
I had an accident 2 weeks ago on my T7 with a long wait ahead because of parts availability and the holiday season. I reckon about 12 weeks.
To be honest I wasn’t planning on buying another bike. A friend sent me a link of the FortNine review and it sparked immediate interest. I know a salesman at Ducati and we got talking

To answer your question, I’m starting with the off-road pack and a headlight protector. Unfortunately the only part that was in stock here was the headlight protector. I’ll get the rest in January I believe. Good excuse to take it easy f the run in period and not take it off-road.
I post that picture for sure
As a matter of interest, to replace the headlight on my T7 is just over 20% of the insurance claim
