Cruise to get the new Desmosedici RR - January 30, 2008, 05:26 AM

Hopefully this ass kills himself on it, but Im sure we wont be that fortunate.


Tom Cruise gets a $72,500 new toy
EnlargeBy Kevin Winter, Getty ImagesTom Cruise, who revealed the best picture at the Screen Actors Guild ceremony on Sunday, is the first owner of a Desmosedici RR, a new, limited-edition line of Ducati motorcycles.




http://www.usatoday.com/life/people/...e_N.htmBEVERLY HILLS (AP) Tom Cruise is the first on the list to get Ducati's newest motorcycle a $72,500 superbike bristling with titanium, magnesium and carbon fiber technology that can scoot up to 200 mph.
Cruise is scheduled to take delivery of the Desmosedici RR at Beverly Hills Ducati this week. Only 1,500 of the red-and-white Moto GP racing replica motorcycles will be made, and Cruise gets the first.
Michael Lock, chief of Cupertino-based Ducati North America, said the Desmosedici RR "is the impossible dream made possible."
"We are delighted to be able to deliver the world's first production unit here in the USA to Tom Cruise, who is a well-known Ducati enthusiast," Lock said in a statement.

Fru, I bet there will be a photo op where he rides it away from the dealership in a 3 piece suit, but he will stop 100 yards down the road to load it on a trailer which will deliver it to its coffin, I mean garage.

Rumor has it, he's a decent rider (with all that MI nonsense aside)... but nowhere close to good as the .net core crew....

you gotta hand it to him, he's managed to swindle millions...

The headline is misleading, Duc.

I thought YOU were going on a cruise to pick up YOUR DesmoRR!

His scientology ideals make me laugh but Cruise has been a long time motorcycle rider. Has a pretty extensive collection. He'll ride this bike though not that much.

Just some of the bikes in Tom's collection :

The Vyrus 985 C3 4V



The Hellcat (Rode it in MI3)



Triumph Scrambler



Honda Valkyrie Rune



He already has a turbo charged Ducati though I can't find a pic of it at the moment.

He studied with Keith Code (Twist of the Wrist 1 & 2) and Keith code even rates him as a "near pro rider".

Before you run your mouth do a little research cause my money is on Cruise!!
