This 2008 Ducati Desmosedici RR is #250 out of the 1,500 produced during a two-year production run. Finished in Rosso GP with a white tail section, the bike was purchased new by the seller for his private collection and now has just 16 miles. It carried an MSRP of approximately $72k when new, and standard equipment includes carbon fiber bodywork, Marchesini wheels, Öhlins suspension, and Brembo brakes. Power is from a 989cc desmodromic V4 paired with a slipper-clutch and six-speed cassette gearbox. An August 2019 service included a new battery and fluid change. This Desmosedici RR is now offered with service records, factory books and accessories, and a clear California title in the seller’s name.

Twin headlights, a tail lamp, turn signals, and a license plate mount all came fitted by the factory. Photos of the bike with the side fairings removed are provided in the gallery below.
