New MX bike from Ducati in 2024

Just last month, UK-based Triumph Motorcycles unleashed their newly developed motocross bike, the TF 250-X. Triumph has also set its eyes on an ambitious motocross racing campaign in the next few years.

Now, it seems that Triumph is not the only European manufacturer that wants to bring back their off-road racing glory days, as Ducati announces that it will reveal a new model for motocross in January 2024.

Ducati also tapped the services of motocross superstar Alessandro Lupino, and 9-time MX World champion, Antonio Cairoli, in the development of the new machine.

While a lot of the details are yet to be published by Ducati, it is speculated that the new bike will be powered by a new single-cylinder 250cc engine that is developed from Ducati’s new Superquadro Mono, which was just revealed last October.

According to Ducati, the new Superquadro Mono engine was designed and built by choosing refined materials and is based on the Panigale 1299 engine, the 1285 cc Superquadro, which represents the maximum evolution of the Ducati street-legal twin-cylinder. The Superquadro Mono inherits the 116 mm diameter piston from the Panigale engine, the shape of the combustion chamber, the 46.8 mm diameter titanium intake valves, the 38.2 mm steel exhaust valves, and the Desmodromic system.

The Motocross team will also be presented along with the other official Ducati Corse teams during “Campioni in Pista”, an event that will be held January 21-23, 2024.
