Paddock Rumors: Jake Zemke BACK ON THE DUCATI FOR DAYTONA!!!

Paddock Rumors: Jake Zemke BACK ON THE DUCATI FOR DAYTONA!!! | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Here’s what we have so far. Desmo Veloce, located in Phoenix, AZ, is a newly formed performance shop specializing in Ducati performance. It’s owned and operated by longtime AMA Ducati technician Richard Boyd. Richard signed Garrett Willis to ride a Ducati for the 2013 season but last weekend while testing at Chuckwalla, Willis was injured and Desmo Veloce did not have a rider for the Daytona 200. Lucky for Richard, he worked with the 2006 Daytona 200 winner Jake Zemke last year on the Ducshop team and the call was made. Our sources tell us that Zemke who finished 6th last year and 3rd the year before in the 200 has agreed to fill in for Willis and race the Daytona 200. Jake has set pole in the past and you better believe that he’s going to be a contender.

Testing the 2013 Ducati Multistrada (and how it compares to the 2010-12 Multistrada) | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

The weekend before last I had the privilege of riding, back to back, two great motorcycles: the 2010 Multistrada and the brand new 2013 Multistrada.  After a short three years in production we have here a rather long list of changes in the 2013 model.

Vilner Adds Vroom to the Ducati Monster 1100 Evo

Vilner Adds Vroom to the Ducati Monster 1100 Evo | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

The Ducati Monster 1100 Evo is, well, a monster. Armed with 99hp76 lb.-ft and a 373 lb. dry weight, this Trellis-framed naked Italian stallion is a two-wheeled street pugilist par excellence. And at a starting MSRP ofjust under $12,000, it’s also an affordable monster.

Of course, since so many people who can drop $12k on a new motorcycle will choose to do so on a Monster 1100 Evo, you might not end up appearing to be as much of a non-conformist as you were hoping. Worse still, there are a fair number of other bikes (some of them also naked bikes) that are quicker. Fortunately, Bulgarian tuner Vilner has fixes for both of these issues; say hello to the Monster 1100 Evo Bulgari.

Reveal! Nicky Hayden and Jorge Lorenzo 2013 Helmet Designs

Reveal! Nicky Hayden and Jorge Lorenzo 2013 Helmet Designs | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Every rider in MotoGP rides with a custom helmet and these often become limited editions or special production issue during the season, to the public.  So the unveiling of a new paint scheme from a popular rider is often done with some element of fanfare. (i.e. Valentino Rossi)

But today Robert Marchion of Starline Graphics who does a number of the riders graphics, tweeted a series of photos of several new helmets he is doing, including two of the series most popular riders – Nicky Hayden and Jorge Lorenzo.  In these photos from his twitter feed, he gives us a good look at his beautiful work and Nicky’s 2013 style in advance of the first test...(click to see all the photos)

A great day in the park – Dania Vintage Motorcycle Show | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

Every year in late January, when the weather in Florida is crazy good and the rest of the country, not so much, there’s a motorcycle show in South Florida called the Dania Vintage Show and it’s a great day in the park.  Over 200 vintage bikes enter but the Ducati’s get a special deal – all years, any model, a separate show within a show. The Ducati Owners Club of South Florida gets together with Ducati Forza, the official dealer, and offers a hospitality area, special parking and the bike show.  This year MotoCorse sponsored the show and handmade the trophy’s.  And for the second year in a row Billy Joel showed up and sang...

In Las Vegas, a gamble on BMW's Kompressor and McQueen's Husky - AutoWeek

In Las Vegas, a gamble on BMW's Kompressor and McQueen's Husky - AutoWeek | Desmopro News | Scoop.it

The anonymous Japanese collector was upset. The rare BMW Kompressor Rennsport, the finest pre-/postwar machine that he had listed, wasn't going for what he wanted. Five hundred thousand dollars he wanted. Half a million bucks! And that wasn't even the value at which the motorcycle had been appraised. The catalog had said “…all the way up to $600,000.” For a motorcycle to go for six figures was stratospherically rare; the last motorcycle that had sold for that much was a 1929 Brough-Superior SS100, one of only 69 made, the Rolls-Royce of motorcycles, only better. It had gone for $456,799. He must have known that. Yet his face was downturned, a mixture of ambivalence and veiled disappointment. The bids on his beloved machine were now stuck at $380,000. He expected higher. He expected the full six hundred. It'd be foolish for him to want any less.Read more: http://www.autoweek.com/article/20130123/carnews01/130119933#ixzz2IuzdoGRW
