Ducati confirms Desmosedici road bike
Ducati has confirmed it will put a version of its V4 MotoGP bike into production within two years.
The replica bike, labelled the Desmosedici RR, will be a limited production, ultra-high-spec beast with carbon-fibre bodywork designed by Alan Jenkins, the man responsible for the shape of the GP bike.
Ducati made its announcement at the World Ducati Weekend on Saturday.
MCN was there and will bring you more details and a full report in Wednesday’s edition of the paper.
The bike uses a 989cc four-cylinder engine in an ‘L’ layout with gear driven camshafts, sandcast aluminium alloy crankcase and cylinder heads, titanium conrods and valves and magnesium engine covers.
