SC-Project launches new exhaust system options for Ducati DesertX


As expected, shortly after the launch of the DesertX, we’re starting to see aftermarket options for owners of Ducati’s newest machine. One of the companies wasting no time is Italian manufacturer SC-Project, who released their Rally Raid silencer for the DesertX – a slip-on exhaust system already offered for several adventure bikes like the Tenere 700, 890 Adventure and Norden 901.

Constructed with high quality lightweight titanium, the Rally Raid muffler reduces weight by 1.5kg (3.3lbs) over the stock pipe and features a compact construction (250mm length) with a tailpipe that follows its rally design. The product is inspired by the company’s involvement in motorcycle racing at the highest level and more precisely “is the result of SC-Project’s experience in the most extreme off-road competitions”, explains the builder.

The system retains DesertX’s Euro 5 homologation and, as part of SC-Project’s slip-on line, is also 100% plug-and-play. Along with weight savings and improved sound, the Rally Raid muffler offers a gain of 1.5 horsepower and 0.9 lb-ft of torque at 8,200 rpm. According to SC-Project, the system also offers “stable horsepower and torque improvement in the low and mid ranges.”

For a further performance boost, SC-Project offers an optional stripping kit.

For those looking for more power and weight savings, SC-Project also offers an optional stripper kit to be used in conjunction with the Rally Raid silencer. This reduces weight by 5.1 kg (11.2 lb) and gives a total increase of 2.8 hp and 1.6 lb-ft of torque at 8,500 rpm. However, keep in mind that this is a non-street-legal upgrade, which the company says is intended “for racing only.”
