Ducati Desmosedici RR



Following the of Ferrari and Lamborghini, Ducati exclusive with the Desmosedici RR, as as a bike developed with Stoner on its back can be. The L-four liquid-cooled, DOHC, Desmodromic, valves per cylinder engine gear driven camshafts 86mm bore and 42,56mm just like on the 2006 Ducati (the D16GP6), up displacing 989cc. Fed through a Marelli fuel injection with four 50mm bodies spraying microjets their 12-hole injectors and out through a 102 dB race pipe, the refined piece of mechanical develops a mind-blowing 200hp at and 85,55 lb-ft of torque at

The extremely powerful motor with a cassette type gearbox and hydraulically actuated dry slipper clutch, both being the closest things get to those on the racing bike, if not THE thing.

The engine is used as a member of the tubular steel hybrid frame, while the of the chassis is the same as on the 2006 one. You get the 43 mm upside-down Ohlins pressurized forks (PFF), TiN coated sliders, which are adjustable in preload, rebound and while the rear shock is provided by Ohlins and is rebound, speed compression adjustable and preload adjustable.

Completing the racing scenario are the Brembo Up front, these feature Monobloc calipers squeezing a of 330mm semi-floating discs on the Marchesini wheel with a look to it. At the back you get a caliper two 34mm pistons and only a disc, enough to get the job done, to Ducati.

The dry weight is a claimed 377 pounds, the Desmosedici to be not only characterized by an power-to-weight ratio, but by an excellent ratio too.

Representing highest end in matter of supersport the 2009 Desmosedici RR features a Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Data Analyser the first being supposed to the bikes rear wheel sliding and the other gathering so that riders can see where can improve right after off the bike. The system records 3.5 hours of vehicle speed, rpm, throttle opening, temperature, distance travelled, and lap times, giving a new meaning to the feedback.


In 2004, first announced that a version of the Desmosedici MotoGP bike was to be produced. Two years at the 2006 Italian MotoGP at Mugello, the Bologna house launched the Desmosedici RR (Racing and the bike started being at the end of 2007. Only 1500 have been made.

Ever since the original the Ducati Desmosedici RR managed to not only due to the impressive performance and MSRP, but thanks to the amazing look given to it by designers. By looking at the bike, it’s not to spot the similarities with the race version. In fact, if we to call a single bike on planet a racing one with mirrors and a license plate, would be it.

With a 56.3-inch wheelbase, a high seat and wide this is definitely a decently-sized that simply couldn’t ended up looking so good the very first year of if not derived from the MotoGP

The 17-inch, 7-spoke Marchesini look racy, but massive as they measure 120mm up and 200mm at the rear in width. in between the wheels is the most the extremely aggressive and yet smooth looks like being by the air jet in the aerodynamic tunnel. The air intake (or found between the headlights (or look like concessions for not to mention the mirrors with stylish integrated signal

The screen is much smoother on the race bike, allowing a space between it and the 4 gallons This last is positioned indeed, but it is fairly robust and simple.

Finally, we get to see a high-end that doesn’t feature the swingarm and also one that, being a single seat and featuring an underseat exhaust, feature the tall tail This makes for a clean look that was achieved aerodynamics in mind.

Body available are Rosso GP and Red with stripe, both featuring the GP Red and Black wheels. Also, models feature a carbon front fender.

Test Ride

The Ducati RR feels exactly like a bike from the very moment on it. While the ergonomics kill anybody, the racing is definitely the most amazing of it simply because it develops at the crank and never stops the best of it. Straight from the bike will go like a and remain consistent all across the powerband.

We really must say despite the horsepower number nuts, the bike won’t any professional rider (after it was developed for this category of riders) because the power is linear and virtually never We appreciate the instant throttle and smooth fueling, but also the kick that you get at around

Immediately after releasing the dry slipper clutch and opening the everything in front of you starts and the track looks like a sometimes a twisted one, but a tunnel towards the finish Nothing else can be heard from the engine’s powerful which determines a skilled to push the bike even The greatest thing is that as as you’d try to ride it to the limit, it uncover your limits and when you start thinking how the DDA system actually is.

We rarely felt the DTC system but have to admit that throttle opening wasn’t of our plan, given the huge price. This bike a rider feel like an part of it and is there to get you at the slightest

We were extremely impressed by the much more friendly than we anticipated, but what the most is, without a doubt, the This feels very exactly like the one of the MotoGP and enables the rider to push exclusive piece of machinery and further and still feel it can do more. The suspension transmits single track imperfection your entire body about feeling like of the bike) and the performance brakes the rider to hit them as fast as before corners and still

Although it feels slightly the chassis only requires to lean more into a and get the job done rather that out and start breaking, falling and breaking their bones.

protection is excellent simply the aggressive riding position let much of the rider’s body out and the bike feels extremely but also fairly harsh a demanding 10-lap single

Imagine how you’ll feel an F1 car on the streets and that’s when get an accurate impression of how the Desmosedici RR when actually hitting the Every single corner or portion of the road transforms your own personal challenge because no other vehicle on the will manage to keep up you.


The bike’s $72,500 excludes me from the buyer’s but given the fact that the 500 units for the United States out in five hours when the RR was originally introduced, the bike is to find its customers extremely


Riding a Ducati RR is an opportunity that is met once in a by us mortals and, in the end, the leaves us with a sweet It will always stand out as the that we weren’t suppose to get and yet we just as it will do with after they buy one of the few models
