Ducati gives the go-ahead for the MotoGP replica bike. The announcement was made at WDW2004 in front of thousands of Ducati fans.

DESMOSEDICI RACING REPLICA: ANOTHER DREAM COMES TRUE.

Misano Adriatico (RN) 22 May 2004 - In the magical atmosphere of the WDW (World Ducati Week, the giant bi-annual meeting of Ducati fans from around the world), as a fitting culmination of a week of events, sport, entertainment and, above all, motorcycles, an announcement that we have all been waiting for: Ducati has launched the Desmosedici Racing Replica development project! The "red Borgo Panigale", the Italian MotoGP bike which has fascinated fans from around the world, will soon be available.

The announcement gives the official go-ahead for the project, which will make the motorcycle available within two years. This is naturally a limited edition, as is right for a product conceived as the first true MotoGP replica. The new frontier of Ducati's technological evolution, embodies all the fundamental features of the motorcycle competing in the MotoGP World Championship, ridden by Troy Bayliss and Loris Capirossi. The Desmosedici RR is another confirmation of Ducati's vision, as well as the company's ability to transfer their experience of the world of racing to a bike intended for the road.

Federico Minoli (President and Managing Director, Ducati Motor Holding) called Gianluigi Mengoli (Technical Director, DMH) and Claudio Domenicali (Managing Director, Ducati Race Division) to the stage to represent the two technological centres of the company. Together they are the driving forces behind this exceptional project. Together with Troy Bayliss and Loris Capirossi the Desmosedici RR engine was presented to the public for the very first time, as the heart of this jewel in the crown of Ducati technology, which was received with unbridled enthusiasm by the public.

Yes, but will it be reliable? Ducati has been having a tough time keeping their race bikes from blowing up this year. Not exactly the marketing pitch I would be looking for if I was sitting in an Italian boardroom and planning on launching a replica of (literally) a beast for the masses..

This is true....however not being all that knowledgable of Duc's, I dont know the answer to this question...but on a normal note, are Ducati's usually a reliable ride that an owner can keep the bike forever type deal, or are they known in general for being somewhat tempermental ? Just curious.

Let's just say my buddy with a Duc likes the fact that I have tool kit on my bike (no matter how lame that factory tool kit is)... He has used it and I never have. :shock:
