Robb Report honors Ducati Desmosedici RR with “Best Of The Best”

Cupertino, Ca (21 May 2008) – Ducati North America is honored to announce that it has won the prestigious Robb Report “Best of the Best- Sport Bike” award for the second year in a row.

The Robb Report “Best of the Best” awards are given to objects of desire on an annual basis; with the Sport Bike category highlighting the pinnacle of performance motorcycle technology. Ducati has been the proud recipient of this honor for two years running; with the award going to the ground breaking 1098 S Superbike in 2007, and now the Desmosedici RR- the world’s first Moto GP derived production bike.

Unveiled at the Italian Grand Prix in 2006; the Desmosedici RR can be considered the most exotic performance motorcycle on the planet. With 200 horsepower on tap and such precious materials as magnesium, titanium and stainless steel draped in carbon fiber bodywork; it represents the epitome of what a sport bike should be: fast, lightweight, and aerodynamic.

The June issue of Robb Report reports: “As a complete package of desirability, the Desmosedici RR is without peer.”
“The Desmosedici RR is that rare thing; an extraordinary fantasy made real.” Says Michael Lock, CEO of Ducati North America. “The Best of the Best is a fitting title for this Italian creation and we are proud to be able to bring it to life.”
