The Desmosedici RR - the ultimate expression of Ducati Corse's racing experience and technology transferred to a road bike - has become the new benchmark for performance, components and style for the entire sector.
The RR was launched in 6/06 on the eve of the Italian GP at Mugello. It was then possible to reserve the bike in Ducati Stores throughout the world, and hundreds of requests meant the bike has become an immediate commercial success. Production of the first true MotoGP replica will begin in a few days time.
Never before has so much expectation surrounded a bike destined for road use. The RR is an exclusive and esoteric product that also deserves some sort of safeguard for those enthusiasts who have ordered it.
Following Ducati's recent victory of the world MotoGP title by rider Casey Stoner, and with more than 1250 orders continuing to pour in from the dealer network, Ducati has decided to limit the total number of Desmosedici RRs produced in the Borgo Panigale factory to 1500.
Once again, Ducati wishes to reward the trust and loyalty of all those customers who made an early reservation and who can now see the value of their purchase increase even before they collect it from their dealer.
Production will begin in the second half of October 2007 and, as promised, Ducati will give delivery priority to the approximately 500 owners of the 999R who have ordered the Desmosedici RR. These people will receive it before the end of this year. For the remaining reservations, Ducati guarantees the delivery of the entire production run by the end of 2008.
