I know what some of you are saying: What could possibly be better than a street-legal MotoGP bike? Well, anyone who has ridden Ducati's similar-concept Desmosedici will tell you it is one of the most brutal, uncomfortable, and difficult motorcycles for the average rider to master on the street or the racetrack. Then there's the issue of price: The rumor buzzing around EICMA suggested that should the RCV-S ever see production, it would sell for 170,000 euros (about $210,000)—making even the $75,000 Desmosedici seem dirt cheap in comparison. This isn't a serious attempt by Honda to advance superbike performance. It's a quickie parts-bin fix to make, what is at best, a mantelpiece for well-moneyed collectors.
