New Ducati Desmosedici D16RR Reviews and Specification

Ducati Desmosedici D16RR, The first true MotoGP replica, Ducati's Desmosedici feasts on never-ending corners."If God were to ever ask me what my perfect motorcycle would be, Ducati’s Desmosedici D16RR would be it

I wonder how long companies like Ducati will continue to support professional racing when the sactioning bodies of motorsports continue to change the rules after the companies have invested millions of dollars in developing these machines...Then companies like Buell (Harley)petition the sactioning bodies to allow them to cheat. Ducati and others should just concentrate on developing the best most perfect motor bikes in the world and damn the displacement. Don't let the Hall monitors rule...rule them! The AMA amd others might have to think twice if no one shows up a GP to race.

The breaks have gobs of stopping power to help sort out the bike's overzealous acceleration.Cranked over at full-lean the Desmosedici is right at home.Red lips and curving hips leave the timid rider feeling a little weak in the knees. With 180 horses to chew up circuits, the Desmosedici is a bike built from the start with the track in mind.
