Ducati Desmosedici RR: Whatever

Ducati had announced their during the World Ducati back in May 2004. And today, in 2006, they’ve kept word. 989cc L4. 205 horsepower. 165 kilos dry weight.

And a top speed in of 320km/h. Ducati’s Desmosedici RR, the first road-legal MotoGP is go. Okay, so the road going RR has about 35 horsepower less the bike which Loris rode to victory in this MotoGP at Jerez. And Ducati are building 400 of these bikes, of more than 300 are already for.

Plus, each RR cost in about US$65,000 so not like you can just rush to the Ducati dealership and put down a on one. But yes, if there’s one in the world which makes me to earn more money, this Ducati. It’s beyond its sand-cast aluminium crankcase and cylinder heads.

It’s glorious beyond its con-rods and valves. It’s beyond its magnesium engine

Stunning it may be, but the Ducati still the last word in straight performance. That honour have to go to the MTT Y2K . the world’s first and turbine-powered motorcycle. The Y2K has a Rolls-Royce turbine engine, which 320 horsepower, and the bike is capable of a top speed of about 365km/h. to see the bike in action?

Want to listen to that engine spooling up? Watch video . Awesome, eh? Forget its performance with other – the Y2K raced an L-39 Aerovodochovy jet (for a television documentary for Discovery channel), and won repeatedly, several runs.

All right, of us would never be able to go for a MotoGP racer replica, or a jet bike. But if you must have 200 and 320km/h, there’s still The Kawasaki ZZR1400 for example, costs a relatively modest Rs lakh or so. On the track, and off it, the Desmosedici RR be in a completely different league

And in a straight line, the Y2K will the fairing off the ZZR. However, on the the ZZR’s 190 horsepower, massive (in stock form, it does a second quarter mile …), and top speed should be just adequate for most.

Performance And just now, it’s more than it ever has in the Which is ironic really, the ever more stringent of speed limits in most of the world. But that’s not stopping manufacturers from getting on the and performance bandwagon. It’s to the point where BMW. motorcycles most people associate with genteel were rumoured to be going to in 2007!

Not that it’s going to but still.

MotoGP bikes for the and the quest for 400km/h notwithstanding, also other interesting happening in the world of motorcycles. The Neander for one, which is the world’s first motorcycle to be by a turbodiesel engine. The 1400cc makes 200Nm of torque at and the diesel bike can accelerate zero to 100km/h in four Top speed for this 310 kilo is 220km/h, so laugh at the Neander at own peril. More oddballs?

Take the very recent Gibbs Quadski – a 140bhp that’s also a jet-ski. Its retract at the touch of a button you want to use it on water, and the thing can do up to on either land or water. I kid you not, is expected to begin the next three years.

will they ever of next.

Update (26.09.2006): have got more than 700 for the Desmosedici RR and are planning a second line to meet orders!
