Wrecked Desmosedici RR up for auction

Written-off Desmo the perfect project bike?

ONE of the 1,500 MotoGP derived Ducati Desmosedici RRs is up for auction, but as a tragic write-off.

Advertised on Insurance Auto Auctions, it is a sorry sight to see the once exclusive road-legal MotoGP machine reduced to scrap. Looking at the now considerably shorter wheelbase and crushed bodywork, this Desmosedici RR came to its demise in a head-on collision with a solid object

The date for the auction is yet to be announched as the Ducati isn't 'ready for sale'.

Perhaps a great start for a Desmo rat-bike?

personally i think it should be crushed even more, but you could ask rossi he might want to try the frame on is bike

Why should it be "crushed even more"?? There is no 2 ways about it. It's a monsterous motorcycle, and if I could afford one, I'd be there in a heartbeat. Not this one though, it's a little crash damaged...

Might get it as a restoration project. I wouldn't have thought parts will cost that much right? :\

Hey Pagic..!

You could give it a nice new CARBON FIBRE FRAME. I’m sure Ducati Corse have a few lying around they can sell you.

COMMON... GIVE IT TO ME...!!!!!!

MKJ, I am sure Ducati Corse will hand over that Carbon frame with all speed......infact, get yourself down the Bologna. I have heard there are a couple on a skip out the back of the factory going spare...
