M16 MotoGP streetfighter: the most motorcycle on the planet?

Overkill. The origins are military in nature, a situation where one country has nuclear weapons to destroy more of another nation it would ever need to in to win a war.

But the term applies to today’s sportsbike market, any numpty with a license and a book can waltz into a and wobble out on a thoroughbred race that can break the speed at mid-revs in first gear and faster than any car on the road. Of for some people that’s not enough, bless their – but to create a vehicle that out from the pack in such a of plenty, you have to take to the absolute extreme.

And it’s a long time we saw anything quite as extreme as the NCR a bike that takes one of the expensive roadbikes ever throws almost all of it in the bin and replaces it the most exotic materials on the Gentlemen, start your

Ducati’s Desmosedici RR broke new when it was released in 2006, as the true MotoGP replica for the With more than 200 on tap and an impressively svelte 171kg to about, it looked decades of its time. But now that BMW’s S RR superbike can pretty much those figures for a fraction of the US$77,000 pricetag, Desmosedici can stay ahead of the game by their hallowed steeds off at NCR and them worked over this, the NCR M16.

The very thought of pulling the off a MotoGP bike and making a streetfighter out of it will make people sick to the stomach – but will appreciate the fact NCR’s efforts cut the Ducati to an astonishing 145kg – lighter the Desmosedici ever was in its racing and a pretty amazing achievement that the stock bike was dripping in carbon fiber, and titanium.

In the engine department, the roaring V4 gets an NCR Corse racing clutch and a lightened gearbox. The stock Ohlins suspension is by, well, even topper-shelf suspension, the same stuff using in MotoGP this as opposed to 2006, the last the Desmosedici 990cc beast in the top class.

The electronics are just as impressive as the raw muscle and light of the M16. The ECU is pre-programmable with up to 3 engine maps, there’s a adjustable traction control to keep the power under and a datalogging and telemetry system records everything from brake and gear inputs to the suspension’s been up to as you were

The NCR M16 has every right to call exclusive — possibly the exclusive motorcycle in the world at a EUR135,000 — and that’s on top of the of the Desmosedici RR donor bike. certainly a pretty penny, but boy we love to take one down to the to get some milk.
