Desmo is unique for sure. It's like no other bike I've ridden. This one doesn't get much seat time unfortunately. Less than 300 miles on the clock which is a shame I know. It looks good though!

Thank you.

I ride all of them as much as I can. They're kept fresh with regular services as well. The two that get the most use are the R and the Dragster.

I sold my dragster about a month ago and I really miss that bike.

Had to make room for this, which is due in a couple of weeks.

I have a deposit down on that dragster RC. What a gorgeous naked bike. Definitely my favorite naked bike by far.

A great addition. Thanks for the extra pics. Back in the early 90's there were three guys I'd see up at the Crest on Sunday's riding 851's. One weekday it was just me and one of those riders. When we pulled over at Newcombs Ranch I said to him "That's not the 851". He got that naughty grin on his face and told me that he'd take the plate of his 851 and use it on the 888 once in a rare while so he could take it for a spin. Awesome bike! First Ducati that really got my attention. Congratulations!!!

How about some shots of the RC30, one of my favourite all time bikes?

Cool stable!

The 30 continues to be a crowd favorite. Honda got it right with this bike.

Here are a few just for you!

I think you'll really enjoy the Dragster. it was such a fun bike to ride. Comfortable, fast, loves to wheelie, sounds great. Traction control and up and down quickshifting was great too. They're fantastic looking bikes too. it got the most seat time by far.

Here's the one I just sold



Thanks from Twistedracer and GunMoto

I rode one back in 2015 when I was strongly considering the white n black one. I liked it a lot but just couldn't pull the trigger on it. Fast forward 2 years and this tricolore paint scheme really did it for me. If I'm being honest, I love the entire RC lineup from MV for 2017 n would probably have one of each if I could afford it but I can't. Stunning bikes. I can't wait!!
Thanks from Twistedracer

I love the one with the white stripes. When I built a rolling bench in my garage I got the exact dimensions of those stripes and painted the outside of the bench exactly the same.
