Ducati Desmosedici RR makes its first public appearance in action at Misano!

With Vittoriano Guareschi aboard, the Desmosedici RR struts its stuff

The absolutely glorious Ducati Desmosedici RR made its first ever public appearance at the recently concluded 2007 World Ducati Week. Ducati MotoGP Team test rider, Vittoriano Guareschi rode the bike around the Misano Circuit for a few demo laps.

Powered by Ducati’s pre-2007 MotoGP-spec 989cc, 200bhp L4, the Desmosedici RR is indeed a MotoGP bike for the road. Ducati Motor Holding CEO, Gabriele Del Torchio says, ‘This is a dream motorcycle that is destined to become an icon, endorsed by the fact that so many of the world’s top sportsmen and celebrities alike have placed orders to own one.’

Apart from its GP6 MotoGP bike-spec engine, the Desmosedici RR boasts of bits like sand-cast aluminium crankcases, magnesium engine covers, a cassette type six-speed gearbox and hydraulically actuated dry multi-plate slipper clutch. The engine’s double overhead cams actuate four titanium valves per cylinder and are gear driven from a crankshaft which has titanium connecting rods.

Ducati Desmosedici RR. Perhaps the most lust-worthy motorcycle in the world

Says Claudio Domenicali, Director of Product Development at Ducati Motor Holding and the CEO at Ducati Corse, ‘We are extremely pleased with the final result – the bike is fantastic both statically and dynamically. The chassis is rigid and the engine crisp, just like the racing Desmosedici and this is the very essence of the project – to leave the owner with a taste of our MotoGP bike!’
