At its début, the bike coined by the brilliant Filippo Preziosi proved to harness astonishing power and it was evident that it had all it takes to be an astounding success. This prediction proved true when Capirossi won the first historic race at the Catalan motorcycle Grand Prix in 2003.
During the WDW 2004, Federico Minoli announced that production of the street version of the Desmosedici - the “Desmosedici RR” - would begin in 2006.
Produced in a limited series of 1500 models, almost ten years after production was discontinued, the Desmosedici RR is one of the most sought-after collectors' bikes.
Proudly testifying to excellent style made in Italy, the Borgo Panigale production facility is synonymous with technology, superior performance levels, as well as being a benchmark in the collective imagination of motorcyclists and enthusiasts from all over the world.
More than 500 motorcycles will be on show at Auto e Moto d'epoca in Bologna, from the models our great-grandparents rode to those which have made history. See you at BolognaFiere from 26th to 29th October.
