Tuned, lightened Desmosedici claimed to be ‘world’s most exclusive motorcycle’

In the world of specials, NCR already produce some of the very best. But this, the Italian firm’s all-new, 200bhp Millona 16, or M16 for short, takes things to an all-new level.  The M16 is based on Ducati’s road-going Desmosedici MotoGP replica – already some kind of ultimate with a £40,000 price tag and 200bhp performance – and then tuned...

Great on paper...

but just looks like a modded Firestorm in the flesh! I think the engineering that has gone into this bike is incredible but it I'd rather have a Desmo! I wonder why it doesn't have a full fairing, is it unfinished?

Blah, blah blah!!!!

:blink::laugh:Now and only if the mighty smart and elegant designers at the "Vyrus" motorcycles in "San Marino" could get a hold of one of these Desmo engines and then you would be able to see some magnifico and utter gorgeous motorcycles that are not only attractive but also supremely built with performance in mind. Being one of the owners of the so called 1500 units (with the exception of the ones already crashed), I'd say that this is a heretic act since the bike feels light already and does not need extra power as it is. If anything, the handling needs a bit improvement for the slower speed as it is super stiff on none track lower speed roads. I still would love for vyrus to build one. I am thinking of selling mine as my friend at Ducati has brought up a rather important fact to my attention, which scared me horrendously and that is the cost of rebuilding the engine after the 3 years of free maintenance runs out, which is something around the US $50K. According to this source and in his exact words, the cost of repairs of a failed cam, and by that, I assume that he means a total engine failure- will be what I just quoted. I think that I have enjoyed mine enough in the past 2900 miles- I put on the bike and with a year and half of free maintanace left on the bike, I'd rather have it gone before the hasselful engine issues destroying my savings and life. Enough said.

Original rear turn signals :(

The O.E.M rear turn signals look hideous indeed and should have been the first items on the "to be removed" list! I'm telling you; with an additional "$15K", you can certainly build an Desmo to a much higher degree of performance and yet maintaining the ultra unique looks of it. I love all kinds of bikes however and yet find this to be a rather bad joke!:dopeyhmmmm:

The fairing is probably where they shaved all of the weight.

As a Desmo owner I'm not quite sure what to make of it! I would imagine it must be lethal to ride if it's 26kg less than a standard Desmo and the way the power comes in on a Desmo well, it must  makeit all  very interesting!! Other than  being a Moto gp rider it would be a big challenge!!

The bike as shown will have to be modded to run or be usable. Where's the radiators and oil cooler, the right hand exhaust pipe exits onto, not under the footrest, need to do better NCR. The bike runs very hot as standard, this one ought to implode double quick without radiators or oil cooling.

It's just plain ugly!  (And that's coming from a 'busa owner.)

It look's like something the Chinese might build.

Someone's obviously got too much time and money!  Why not put it to some use, like redisigning my 'busa.
