"The Desmosedici RR is a true Grand Prix replica," commented Claudio Domenicali, Ducati's Product Director and the Managing Director of the Ducati Corse race team. "The technological level of this bike is extraordinarily high, and for the first time ever, all the authentic performance and technology of the ultimate MotoGP racing machine have been transferred to a road-going motorcycle."
If you fancy yourself as an owner of this dazzling machine, you'd better prepare to cough up a staggering 55,000 €. And even if you have that kind of money, there's no guarantee you'll get one. Those who already have a 999R in their garage get first dibs until September 30; the rest of us poor sods will have to hope they don't all want the RR. Ducati dealers are taking reservations for the RR beginning on June 2 for the 400-or-so units to be produced each year.
With the aim of producing the ultimate track performance, Ducati in collaboration with Bridgestone is developing special tyres for the Desmosedici RR. The tread pattern, construction and profile are being specially developed and produced by the Japanese tyre manufacturer.
