Manufactured in a special aeronautical-derived aluminium alloy, the new Zard engine guard for the Ducati DesertX is an essential part of the new Sabbia range - a series of products inspired by the world of rally-raid racing, which combine sophisticated design with cutting-edge construction technologies to offer uncompromising performance and durability, even in off-road use.
The Sabbia engine guard has been designed directly on the Ducati DesertX to offer optimal protection to all the mechanical parts of the powerful twin-cylinder engine. The aluminium alloy with which it is constructed offers excellent impact resistance and, despite its considerable thickness, guarantees optimum lightness.
To increase resistance even in the most demanding situations, the Sabbia engine guard is not anchored directly to the engine. In fact, the Zard engineers have created a tubular stainless-steel frame, designed specifically for the Ducati DesertX, which works as a support for the engine guard using the fixing points present on the bike.
The "dart" styling motif that characterises this engine guard has a dual purpose - aesthetic and functional. In fact, it lightens the component and ensures the correct air passage to help cool the mechanics, but at the same time it recalls the Z of the Zard logo and makes the engine guard more streamlined and aggressive.
PLEASE NOTE: the Sabbia engine guard can be purchased and fitted independently of the slip-on exhaust system. It does not imply any modifications to the original motorbike.
