Dukati Superbike Desmosedici RR

Ducati’s will soon begin delivery of it’s Superbike for 2008, the Desmosedici RR. With a limited production of only 1,500 bikes and price tag of over $72,000 you’ll need to be one of the elite (lucky) to get one. But if you do you’ll be able to hit speeds of 200 mph.

A number of ‘firsts’ for Ducati and production sport bike design have been introduced. The 848 and 1098 are the first to have a data acquisition system integrated as standard equipment and the first to use an ingenious construction method for its weight-saving single-sided swingarm.

More ‘firsts’ for a road-going Ducati include the direct application of MotoGP technology, like the power producing GP6-derived elliptical throttle bodies and the use of the information-rich instrumentation originally developed for the Desmosedici GP7. Furthermore, the 1098 is the first production motorcycle to have the amazing stopping power of Brembo Monobloc brakes.

Let’s just wait and see who’s the first guy to film himself doing over 200 on a freeway. Tom Cruise perhaps?
