The dream of a true GP replica has finally come true and the Desmosedici RR is the first-ever road-going motorcycle to offer such a stunning wealth of performance and technology that comes directly from Ducati's experience in MotoGP. The RR derives from the Ducati Corse Grand Prix racing Desmosedici GP6, the same bike with which Loris Capirossi and Sete Gibernau competed with in the 2006 MotoGP World Championship.

The body design and the aerodynamics faithfully reflect the Desmosedici GP6. The colour scheme, the fittings, the materials used in its construction as well as the technical features of the powerful four-cylinder desmodromic engine built by the Borgo Panigale factory engineers, leave no doubts whatsoever: the Desmosedici RR is the ultimate expression of the most extreme MotoGP racing machine today.

This is the new frontier of Ducati technological evolution, a dream come true, demonstrating once again the courage and the passion of Ducati, as well as the ability to transfer the experience of the racing world to a machine that is destined for road use.

Check out all the details in the complete description of the engine and in the thorough analisys of the vehicle, not to mention the tech specs as well as the most recent pictures.

Every single one of the 1500 Ducati Desmosedici RR bikes, the first true MotoGP replica which the Borgo Panigale manufacturer decided to produce in a limited number, has been sold. Following the conquest of Ducati's recent MotoGP title by Casey Stoner, the race was on to purchase the last remaining bikes available.

Reservations for the Desmosedici RR have been accepted via the official Ducati dealer network since 2 June 2006. Production of the 1500 limited edition motorcycles began in October 2007 and first deliveries are reserved to 999R owners who placed their Desmosedici RR order before 30 September 2006. Production of all remaining orders will be completed by December 2008.

The engine clearly represents the beating heart of this fantastic motorcycle, but the technological advancements also extend to the chassis: a signature tubular trellis hybrid frame, refined components, and a superb carbon fibre body.

With a power output of 200 HP* at 13,800 rpm and a torque of 11.8 kgm* at 10,500 rpm, the new D16RR engine follows the guidelines laid down by the Ducati Corse GP engine, a masterpiece of engineering and precision.

Ducati is proud to announce that it has won the prestigious Robb Report "Best of the Best—Sport Bike" award for the second year in a row and has been awarded "Best Superbike" for 2008 by Cycle World Magazine—both for the Desmosedici RR. More details available on the Ducati North America web site.

The most beautiful bike among the “Reds of Borgo Panigale” was voted the “2008 Bike of the Year” in France, Spain, Portugal, Hungary and Romania by readers of some prestigious European magazines that awarded first place in the “Sportbike” category to the D16 RR.

The Motorcycle Bloggers International (MBI), the international association of motorcycle bloggers, has awarded the Ducati Desmosedici RR the “Best Concept Motorcycle” of 2006 and “Object of Lust”, making this bike known as the most desired bike of all time. These awards add to the long list of honours for this model, confirming the great success of Ducati’s “new creature”.
