Doh! This is disappointing! I read the headline on the main motorcycle.com page and I was totally anticipating new pictures & a possible review of the Desmosedici uber-bike that they are supposedly coming out with.

WOW. I want I want.



though 400lbs doesn't sound particularly remarkable for a machine that likely can't be used on extended rides. Still, I am excited.

Yah see now you disappointed me even more making me thing motorcycledaily had tidbits on the desmosedici.



But anyway, this hypermotard strikes me as Ducatis efforts to stab a wooden stake right through Erik Buell's heart.

It's great to see Ducati working on new ways to configure their current products, but I"m waiting for the Moto Morini Corsaro 1200. Now that promises to be the real Il Monsto!

Like the looks. Wouldn't mind a test drive, assuming I didn't kill myself...



$10 on Sean.

A red child of a Ulysses/HP2 affair.

The tank looks small, but not *that* small. I imagine the riding position isnt too bad, either.



Too bad desmo valves need such frequent maintanance. It would be a nice urban commute / traffic buster otherwise, being so narrow, and still have lots of power for weekend / track day fun.

Actually, this is really nothing more than a Multi with the body work it SHOULD have had from the start. And I just wish Ducati could realize that there are a number of folks who would buy this with the 620 engine or even the 800. But no, they will screw up and release it initially only as a ridiculously overpowered 1000. There sales are off over 15% this year. So what does Ducati do? They raise their prices $500 American on every bike even though the Dollar has grown stronger over the last year. Does this make sense? Will charging an extra $500 over last year increase their sales in the US? Maybe the Chinese will buy them out and run the company intelligently.



Sorry for the rant.
