Ducati Desmosedici RR

DUCATI DESMOSEDICI RR: THE ULTIMATE DUCATI EXPERIENCE


Ducati has chosen the magical atmosphere of the Italian Grand Prix at Mugello to launch the Desmosedici RR production prototype.

The dream of a true GP replica has finally come true and the Desmosedici RR will be the first-ever road-going motorcycle to offer such a stunning wealth of performance and technology that comes directly from Ducati's experience in MotoGP. The RR derives from the Ducati Corse Grand Prix racing Desmosedici GP6, the same bike with which Loris Capirossi and Sete Gibernau are competing with in the 2006 MotoGP World Championship. The Mugello launch is the perfect occasion to reveal the shape and the technical characteristics with which the bike will go to market, confirming the high technological features of this exclusive and esoteric machine.

The body design and the aerodynamics faithfully reflect the Desmosedici GP6. The colour scheme, the fittings, the materials used in its construction as well as the technical features of the powerful four-cylinder desmodromic engine built by the Borgo Panigale factory engineers, leave no doubts whatsoever: the Desmosedici RR is the ultimate expression of the most extreme MotoGP racing machine today.

The project is currently in the industrialization phase and, as previously announced, it will be a limited edition motorcycle, with approximately 400 bikes being produced a year. The RR is scheduled to arrive in the market in July 2007, while from June 2nd 2006 it will be possible to reserve the bike through the official Ducati dealer network, with Ducati 999R owners receiving priority.

This is the new frontier of Ducati technological evolution, a dream come true, demonstrating once again the courage and the passion of Ducati, as well as the ability to transfer the experience of the racing world to a machine that is destined for road use.

Federico Minoli (Chairman and Managing Director of Ducati Motor Holding) and Claudio Domenicali (Product Director of Ducati Motor and Managing Director of Ducati Corse), together with Ducati Corse riders Loris Capirossi, Sete Gibernau and Vittoriano Guareschi were at Mugello to unveil Ducati's latest jewel of technology.

"This is an important moment for us, another dream come true. Producing the Desmosedici RR means offering the ultimate expression of Ducati technology, while remaining faithful to the tradition of every one of our road and racing bikes," declared Federico Minoli. "It is a challenge that we wanted to accept and although relatively few bikes will be made, the RR will be a true object of desire for all Ducatisti. It will be the ultimate Ducati experience, one that best exemplifies the passion and the ingenuity for which we are famous. Meanwhile the twin-cylinder remains and will continue to remain Ducati's traditional engine, having equipped all of our production models in the past and equipping them in the future."

"The Desmosedici RR is a true Grand Prix replica," commented Claudio Domenicali. "The technological level of this bike is extraordinarily high and for the first time ever all the authentic performance and technology of the ultimate MotoGP racing machine have been transferred to a road-going motorcycle. Over 200 hp of power for a bike that features exclusive components and quality materials, destined to become the new point of reference for production motorcycles. There couldn't have been a better place than Mugello for the unveiling of this new bike and who better to take the wraps off it than Loris, Sete and Vittoriano, because this bike is also their bike and all of their experience has gone into developing this road-going motorcycle."

Desmosedici Engine Features
• 200+ hp with racing exhaust kit (supplied with every bike)
• 989cc L-Four cylinder, Twin Pulse configuration
• Desmodromic, with 16 titanium valves (Desmosedici)
• Quadruple 12 hole 'micro-jet' fuel injectors
• Double overhead cams, gear driven
• Titanium connecting rods
• Cassette transmission
• Sand cast engine cases
• Magnesium covers
• 4 into 2 into 1 vertical exit exhaust
• Dry 'Slipper' clutch

Desmosedici Chassis Features
• Hybrid Trellis frame
• Carbon fibre seat support
• Öhlins nitrogen pressurized reservoir 43mm "FG353" PFF forks
• Öhlins four-way adjustable rear shock with GP6 linkage and
geometry
• Brembo radial "monoblock" front callipers
• Forged and machined Marchesini magnesium wheels
• New lightweight Corse electronic multifunction dashboard
• Aluminium alloy tank
• Full Carbon fibre body
• Bridgestone tyres with special profile and structure

The Desmosedici RR will be available with a special race kit that includes a 102 dB racing exhaust, a dedicated CPU, bike cover, track stand.

For this exclusive Ducati model a new dedicated service plan has been devised thanks to which each Ducati Desmosedici RR owner can count upon a three-year warranty and a three-year maintenance period free of charge. Two versions of the RR will be available: the Desmosedici RR is painted in 'Rosso GP', has a white number plate on the tail section and a white Ducati logo on the fairing, while the Desmosedici RR 'Team Version' is painted in 'Rosso GP', and as with the factory Corse bikes, has a broad white stripe on the fairing. A team sponsor decal kit will be provided with each bike.

Don't be forgetting MV Agusta. Even car magazines say those are the closest you'll ever get to a Ferrari on two wheels.

Hopefully, the price should be under the 999R considering it has 989cc's compared to the R's 999.

I'll definately look into this. Thanks for the photos.

Well the engine of the F4 was developed by Ferrari (or at least Ferrari had some input in it), that's what the F stands for...
