In 2007, Casey Stoner won his first MotoGP World Championship aboard Ducati’s V4 Desmosedici racer. That same year, the Bologna brand would unleash one of the most exotic and elite production motorcycle of the last 20 years with the Desmosedici D16RR (or “Race Replica”). Limited to just 1,500 units worldwide, the ultra-exclusive two-wheeler was the closest thing the public had ever seen to a MotoGP bike with headlights for sale.

While the D16RR is often referred to as a “detuned version” of the Italian prototype racer, it actually featured an all-new 989cc, 90-degree V4 with gear-driven cams, twin-pulse firing order, Desmo valve actuation, single-piece forged steel crankshaft, and sand-cast aluminum crankcases and cylinder heads. The RR was good for close to 200hp and 85ft-lbs of torque when equipped with the special race ECU and exhaust system which was included with each bike. In road-going trim, it was still capable of putting down 180 horses. Top speed was an equally impressive 190 mph thanks to a dry weight of only 377 lbs (425 lbs wet).

The first-ever four-cylinder production Ducati, the Desmo RR boasted a heap of race-grade hardware. Brakes consisted of the same units used on Ducati’s MotoGP bikes (wet setup) with dual four-piston radial-mount monoblocs and floating 330mm discs. Ohlins supplied its 43mm gas-pressurized FG353P forks and PRXB mono-shock.

The bodywork, heel-guards, fenders, fairing bracket, and subframe are comprised of carbon fiber, while the exhaust heat-shield is made from a carbon-ceramic composite.

Ducati’s MotoGP bike for the street also utilized a steel trellis frame derived from the brand’s premier class racer, and even the LCD display was plucked straight off the GP7. The whole thing rolls along on $20K Marchesini forged and machined magnesium wheels wrapped in special Bridgestone rubber developed exclusively for the D16RR. As one would expect on a motorcycle with a $70K+ sticker price, the fit and finish on the Desmo RR is absolutely exquisite. Each of the 1,500 units was built by hand by a special team and each example bares a numbered plaque.

This example (VIN: ZDM1ZDFW28B000308, Engine #: ZDF8000415) is #308 out of the production run.

The owner acquired it through Iconic Motorbikes last year, however he’s currently in Asia and already owns two Desmosedicis so he’s decided to let this one go. He has not ridden the bike at all and it has been in storage at our facility the entire time. The odometer shows 218 miles.

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on the original Bridgestone Battlax BT01 tires made in 2007.

The sale includes one key, World Dealer Guide, stock exhaust, and stock ECU (the race exhaust and ECU are currently equipped).
