Prepare to remove your hat at the sight of the Ducati Desmosedici RR (www.ducati.com) —if you do not want it blown off. This first-ever street-legal MotoGP replica is derived from the Ducati Corse Grand Prix Desmosedici GP6, which finished third in the MotoGP World Championship in 2006. The high-performance engine of this $65,000 bike achieves 200 hp at 13,800 rpm. Features borrowed from the race version include an Öhlins suspension system and seven-spoke Marchesini magnesium alloy wheels.
