$25 and you might be riding a Bayliss 1098R!

$25 and you might be riding a Bayliss 1098R! | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Duc Pond Motorsports and Horsepower Charities are raising money for a few great causes and we like the way they are thinking. The raffle is for a limited edition Bayliss 1098R, a bike so rare that they only produced 500 WORLDWIDE. And for those that aren’t familiar with the Bayliss 1098R, it was a proper tribute for a true champion, not a “sticker kit” bike – the 1098R Bayliss was the real deal with all the good bits and pieces, and it’s beautiful to boot.

The 900SS was one of my bikes (Monster 600, 750SS, 900SS). An awesome bike but the 750SS was more fun (un real toy) :)

Ninester, a Mean, Customized Ducati Fighter | autoevolution

Ninester, a Mean, Customized Ducati Fighter | autoevolution | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
Here's one nice piece of news to the fans of customized fighters. Welcome the Ninester, stripped-down 2001 Ducati Monster, with aggressive and at the same time, flowing looks.

One of the nicest things about this Ducati is the fact the bike looks very clean and this adds major on the cool factor scale. The wiring has been cleverly and skillfully hidden under the wide Ducati 999 fuel tank, so there are no loose wires and cables.

For Sale | 2006 Paul Smart 1000 Limited Edition Sport Classic | Ducaticlassifieds.com

For Sale | 2006 Paul Smart 1000 Limited Edition Sport Classic | Ducaticlassifieds.com | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

For sale is my 2006 Paul Smart 1000 LE. I bought her brand new in the fall of 2007 from Salt Lake Motorsports. She was originally prepped by Matt Spencer, master Ducati mechanic/tuner & three time KTM Paris-Dakar crew chief for Chris Blaise. All subsequent service has been performed by Matt, (then SLMS/ now speedbyspencerdotcom).
Matt set her up with a Power Commander III, Termignoni slip-on, DP ECU and Ohlins spring upgrade – 00698-06/44 L136. The stock Ohlins spring is under-sprung. The upgrade provides a much more compliant and plush ride. I removed the stock mirrors in favor of a left bar mount CRG and installed a dpcars fender kit – dpcarsdotnet ~ (The stock mirrors and stock tail light/ license plate assembly are included. The stock exhaust is no longer available).
She originally resided in Chicago and is currently located with me in Denver, (garaged in both places). 2224 miles are currently on the clock.

2009 595 Supermono Strada | Phil Aynsley Photography

2009 595 Supermono Strada | Phil Aynsley Photography | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Developed by noted Ducati Supermono tuner Alistair Wager, the Strada is the Supermono Ducati never built. Wager bought much of the factory's remaining parts stock and commissioned Pierobon, who built the original frames for Ducati, to construct a further 10. Of the 3 road-going bikes he's built to date, this (the 3rd) is the most like the originals. The main changes from the 1993 racers are the use of the Testastretta head, 104mm piston, 54mm throttle body with shower type injectors & starter motor (all from the 999R). The exhaust runs on the opposite side to the original. A one piece billet steel crank and balance mechanism are fitted (the later was cast originally). Green powder coated aluminium side cases replicate the magnesium originals. NGR slipper clutch. The carbon fibre body work is of modern, lighter type. The Ohlins rear shock was built up from NOS parts. The bike produces 75hp at the rear wheel and weighs 137kg wet. Cost £40,000 plus VAT. Photographed in New Zealand, 2012. Bill Irwin collection.

The Other Racing Face Of Ducati In America – Jake Zemke | Ducati.net | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Ducati.net recently sat down at with Jake Zemke, rider of the Ducshop Racing 848 EVO. With similar backgrounds and friendships going back years, we couldn’t help but notice the divergence the careers of ex-Honda factory riders, Zemke and Hayden have taken, yet here they are, after all the years, racing again with the same manufacturer (Ducati), something that we’d be willing to bet neither saw coming as a career path. And that is where the similarities stop.

Return of the Cafe Racers: Ducati Super Sport 900 The Operator by Icon

Return of the Cafe Racers: Ducati Super Sport 900 The Operator by Icon | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Some time in the foreseeable future the advent of an apocalypse due to a zombie outbreak, nuclear war or perhaps even global warming, will cause the total breakdown of society as we know it. When this disaster happens the majority of the survivors will more than likely become desert roaming vigilantes fighting to the death for the next tank of fuel or can of dog food. Never fear though, not everyone will be out to dismember you or throw you in a cage with a giant gladiator just for laughs. There is one who stands against all that is evil and is prepared to aid those in need during the end of times and it's been made by Icon. This is Icon's custom Ducati Super Sport 900 they call "The Operator" and it's here to help stitch your arms back on and set you on your wasteland way.

Motegi MotoGP: Seventh maximum potential, admits Valentino Rossi | MCN

Motegi MotoGP: Seventh maximum potential, admits Valentino Rossi | MCN | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
Valentino Rossi says he could have not ridden any faster or put in any extra effort after he ended the Grand Prix of Japan at the Twin Ring Motegi in a lonely and distant seventh.

The Italian said finishing a massive 26 seconds behind race winner Dani Pedrosa was the maximum potential his factory Ducati GP12 has, with a lack of rear grip under acceleration remaining the Desmosedici’s biggest weakness.
