Shell out an additional $51,500-or in this case an additional $60,300, since our testbike came with the optional Ducati Performance titanium exhaust, race ECU and air filter-and you can throw a leg over a Desmosedici RR. MotoGP DNA, gear-driven cams, titanium valves and conrods, magnesium case covers and a gas-charged Öhlins fork are just some of the ultra-exotic bits you can brag about. But when it comes to outright performance, the numbers aren't as outrageously spectacular as you might imagine. On the dyno, the Desmo's 990cc, 90-degree V4 pumped out 169.8 bhp and 72.4 lb.-ft. of torque, which propelled the bike's 430 lbs. down the quarter mile in 9.59 seconds at 152.8 mph. That's quicker and faster than a Hayabusa, though if you spent as much money on one of those-or even a GSX-R1000-it would crucify the Duc.
