A few weeks ago “REVS” Toronto, the downtown Ducati dealership held a fun fashion and 2008 Ducati model unveiling promo night for all its clientele. That included media and Ducatisti (part of the Ducati North America synchronized fashion nights). I accepted my invitation happily and looked forward to mingling with like minded motorcycle passionato’s. It was an evening to enjoy Ducati’s latest motorcycle fashion style and get closer to the 2008 models which included a close up of the Desmosedici RR !
The event did not disappoint and it was super great to see fellow motorcyclists. Part of the festivities included a staged photo shoot with the star of the show, the Ducati Desmosedici RR. Without a second thought, we all stood in front of the camera. And well, you know I’ve never been camera shy. This particular Ducati Desmosedici was not for sale. It had a one night showing at Toronto Ducati and then the keys would be handed over to its new owner. It was purchased by very fortunate local Canadian Doctor who added it to his collection. He attended that night.
Earlier in the evening, before the photo shoot the ‘doctor’ (I’ve forgotten his name as the Ducati Desmosedici distracted my concentration); ignited the Ducati Desmosedici and provided all of us a sensation of power translated through its sound! It was exhilarating. There really is none so seductive a rumble as was put out by this race replica Ducati Desmosedici MotoGP bike. It was heaven for all of us in the room. The double L-Twin 4 cylinder 322 kph (200 mph) engines’ sound vibrated piercingly through the heart and soul of each Ducatisti present. Now then, if I could only ride it!
If you’re not up-to-date as to what this amazing machine is all about I invite you to read my Ducati Desmosedici info on the MOTORESS technique/technical section—you’ll truly be impressed.
