Description


Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 2008 Ducati Desmosedici RR. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

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: ZDM1ZDFW18B000672) is #672 of 1,500.


The seller acquired approximately a year ago from a private party in Huntington Beach, California. Since then, he’s ridden the bike approximately 400 miles. The odometer shows 6,749 miles.

On 12/15/2008 with roughly 1,000 miles, the engine was replaced by Power Motorsports under warranty due to broken valve springs. Per a previous owner, the replacement motor “was a crate motor with all of the updates” that was stamped with the original serial number (ZDF8000798).

Modifications:
Full Termignoni GP7 titanium exhaust with the matching ECU, air filter, and corresponding bellypan/seat/tail/taillight sections that allow the exhaust to fit. The mufflers and the stock exhaust are not included, and the exhaust has been pipe wrapped.


17″ BST carbon fiber wheels (stock wheels included).

Brembo T-Drive 320mm rotors.

Translogic quick shifter.

Brake lever guard.

The sale includes an OEM Ducati carbon fiber race front fairing with carbon fiber air scoop and misc mounting hardware as well as a SGR clutch plate kit and stronger spring for the Ohlins shock.

Cosmetic Blemishes:





The tires are from 2018.

The sale includes several extras as pictured below.
