NCR Ducati Millona: Got US$80,000...?

Fast, cool, exotic and very, very expensive - the Millona

What has the power-to-weight ratio of a Yamaha R1, but costs about seven times as much? Why, the recently revamped NCR Ducati Millona racebike of course! Powered by Ducati’s 116-horsepower, 1100cc v-twin, the Millona weighs just 121kg, hence the very exciting power:weight figure.

The Millona also packs uprated pistons, titanium con-rods and valves and a new 2-into-1-into-2 exhaust system that’s made of titanium. Brembo brakes, Ohlins suspension and carbonfibre bodywork complete the package. Price? You know what they say. If you need to ask, you probably can’t afford it. But still, if you've got US$80,000 you should be able to take a Millona home. As for us, if we ever had that kind of money, we’d much rather have a Desmosedici RR

Go to the NCR Ducati website for more information on the Millona.

The usual suspects are all here - carbonfibre, titanium, Brembo, Ohlins - and at US$80,000 they'd better be!
