For sale to highest bidder: slightly used 2008 Ducati Desmosedici RR street-legal MotoGP replica.

Okay, maybe “slightly used” is a bit misleading. This Ducati Desmosedici RR (one of only 1,500 produced) lost a battle with physics and currently sits in pieces at Insurance Auto Auctions’ Fremont, Calif., branch. The auction hasn’t actually started yet as it awaits certification. We’re guessing it will be sold “as is”.

As seen in the pictures below, this Desmosedici has seen better days, with bent Ohlins fork tubes, dangling brake disc and heavily damaged fairing.

How many miles does it have? They’ll let you know once they find the odometer.
