The Ducati Desmosedici RR is a road legal superbike built using the technology and aerodynamics of the Ducati MotoGP race bike. Ducati are the first to bring such an extreme top level race bike within the general publics grasp.

Power for the Ducati Desmosedici RR comes from a 989cc L-Four cylinder featuring 16 titanium valves, gear-driven double overhead cams, and quadruple 12 hole 'micro-jet' fuel injectors. Although it should be noted that the race bike and road bike have many different internal components. Most of the differences are a by-product of the compromises needed to allow the bike to pass European emissions and noise regulations, Others are to ensure longevity and reliability. A Ducati Moto GP race engine is toast after 400 miles, completely unfeasible and unwanted for a road bike.

However, the chassis components and hybrid carbon-fibre/steel trellis frame of the Ducati Desmosedici RR are almost identical to the race bike. Highlights include nitrogen pressurised 43mm Ohlins FG353 PFF forks, Ohlins four-way adjustable rear suspension, Brembo front calipers and magnesium Marchesini wheels.

The carbon-fibre bodywork of the Desmosedici RR features the first self-supporting carbon fiber tail unit fitted to a road bike, it also hides the unique exhaust which exits through the top. No chance of getting laden with a pillion.

The dash of the Ducati Desmosedici RR is taken directly from the racer and displays amongst other things, oil pressure, trip, fuel, air temperature and lap times.

As further proof that this is an exceptional bike with as few compromises as possible, Brigestone were drafted in to create tires specifically designed to fit the bike.

The Ducati Desmosedici RR comes painted in one of two color combinations; 'Rosso GP' (red) with white rear race number plates, or 'Rosso GP' with white rear race number plates and a broad white stripe on the side fairings. Whatever colors chosen the bike comes with Ducati MotoGP team sponsor decals to further affirm its racing roots.

Ducati plan to only produce around one Desmosedici RR per day with reservation priority going to Ducati 999R owners
