Ever wondered what Ducati’s exclusive Desmosedici RR sounds like? Well, to be honest, with the stock exhaust can the motorcycle sounds pretty much like two Ducati 1098 side-by-side.

But, as we at MCN discovered when it arived at our offices, if you swap the standard unit for the ‘race’ version – part of the Desmosedici package – you get a near as dammit MotoGP bike.

Not only does the Desmosedici (‘Team’ version seen here) sound awesome, but approximately 5kg weight is shed, and the bike’s full 200bhp (claimed) performance is unleashed.

Check out the video below to see the Desmosedici’s beautiful MotoGP-inspired lines and listen to the glorious exhaust note. No wonder all 1500 Desmosedici RR are sold…

More on the Desmosedici coming soon in MotorCycle News.
