Desmos were. $75k. Unless that's a fully built AMA superbike spec ducati.....it wasn't $140k.

Watch his foot get caught under it in slo-mo....wow. It was caught between the ground and a spinning tire, those boots saved that foot for sure.

Info blurb on YouTube says its an 1198rs with a 1098 frame (used for the vin stamp to make it street legal). I imagine most of the money was spent on labor. Guy's still an idiot.

I thought the only "option" was the termignoni exhaust at $2500?

It's the 1098R models I think it's like mid $20k range.

Do they not have a tip over sensor?

not a bike expert: rear tire locked up? skip to around 47s and look at the rear tire spin. see a shiny glare then a dark spot pop up. fancy race rubber not at race conditions? magic streak mark around 30s (probabl similar streak mark in his pants).

ft tire locked up, you can see a sliver of black skid mark

too much lean angle for the amt of braking he was doing.
