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 specific D16RR (VIN: ZDM1ZDFW98B000676, Engine #: ZDF80000797) is #676 out of the 1,500 that were produced.

It was originally sold new in California, spent most of its life in the Southwest, and spent the last 2.5 years in the Southwest before the previous owner sold it here on Iconic Motorbike Auctions in April 2021. The current owner is overseas 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 3,814 miles.

In preparation for the previous listing, the seller had Iconic’s White Glove Service handle some paintwork to fix a scratch on the tail, chips in the exhaust heat shield, and scuffs in the left middle fairing and right lower fairing.

While the bodywork was off, we installed a new battery and flushed the brake/clutch fluid.

Our friends at EuroCycle in Reno, Nevada were able to confirm that this bike has had the following warranty/recall work done:
10/02/08 – Left and right valve return springs replaced, as well as spark plugs, cylinder head gaskets and some o-rings. Dealer who filed the claim put no information as to why those parts were replaced.
11/06/14 – CR063 (recall) tail guard overheating.
11/08/14 – Came in for gearbox inspection, claim was rejected.
1/16/15 – Same claim as above but Ducati approved it the second time around. The bike was in for service and, upon draining the oil, technician found what appeared to be a piece of the gear selector spring. They did a teardown and ruled out any engine damage, found the gear selector spring was the issue (but it had done some carnage in there) and replaced the entire gearbox.

In addition, the previous seller had a service done at BMW Motorcycles of Atlanta in February of 2019: oil/filter change and a new key cut and coded to the bike.

It is on the original Bridgestone Battlax BT-01 tires from 2008.

Modifications:
Ducati Corse-branded tank guard.

Cosmetic Blemishes:
We do not see any blemishes of note.

Inside of tank:

The sale includes two keys and the code card (not pictured).
