RSD Desmosedici - March 12, 2011, 10:46 PM

Quote:
The Ducati Demosedici completely blew away the motorcycle world in its debut in 2008. The only true, street legal Moto GP race bike made available to the general public. With a limited production of 1,500 units worldwide, the 500 shipped to the US sold out in just 5 hours! This box-stock V4-powered machine cranks out 200 HP, redlines at 16,000 RPM and weighs in at a nimble 377 lb. What more could you ask for?

Well, our good friend Justyn Amstutz (owner of 3 Desmo’s) is not one to leave anything alone. We already did the teardown on his ZERO-mile bike in order to start converting it into our version of a street legal, “Street Tracker”. All of the bodywork was preserved to allow him to use as spares in case he lays down one of his other Desmos. We started mock up of the project by putting it on some spoked wheels with flat track race tires. We then fab’d up a subframe, and started on creating the tail section and aluminum gas tank to get that flat track inspired appearance.

Why would you do that to a desmo. And the RC8 you got is rarer than the desmo

personally i think they made a mistake making so many of the Desmos, but the economy tanked at just the right time also

at the end of the day, the KTM is just a paint job with some factory pieces added on. The Desmo is in a completely different league.

I agree but I can come much closer to harnessing the RC8s power. The desmo... forget about it.
