Thumbs up Ducati GP replica launched today ( The Desmosedici RR )

Thursday June 1, 2006, at the launch of the Ducati Desmosedici RR MotoGP replica road bike.
The bike was revealed at 4ham US time, and here's what Potter could tell us just a few minutes later:

"At 11:45 (Italian time), Ducati unveiled the most extreme road bike ever seen. The Desmosedici RR makes more than 200 horespower with the race kit, and it's the closest thing money can buy to a full-blown MotoGP bike.
The bike looks so pure you'd expect Loris Capirossi or Sete Gibernau to be riding it down the road, and they've just wheeled it onto the main straight at Mugello for press pictures''.

I love the black treatment on the forks...
My friend who has the dough to get one already is in the loop with ProItalia on it. 60k was the number I heard.
Pretty remarkable for a GP derived bike that cost a million (right?!)

My mods are ghey...
