Tom Cruise to get first Ducati Desmosedici RR

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - Tom Cruise is the first on the list to get Ducati's newest motorcycle — a $72,500 superbike bristling with titanium, magnesium and carbon fiber technology that can scoot up to 200 mph.

Cruise is scheduled to take delivery of the Desmosedici RR at Beverly Hills Ducati this week. Only 1,500 of the red-and-white Moto GP racing replica motorcycles will be made and Cruise gets the first.

Michael Lock, chief of Cupertino-based Ducati North America, said the Desmosedici RR "is the impossible dream — made possible."

"We are delighted to be able to deliver the world's first production unit here in the USA to Tom Cruise, who is a well-known Ducati enthusiast," Lock said in a statement.

FYI, matt leblanc of "Friends" also got the first Aprilia Nero, he's supposed to be a decent rider and a gearhead.

Maybe Tom will wad it up first time out.(do the world a favor) What a waste of machinery for a pansy like Cruise. Like he'd ever get it close to it's potential. Will sit in his garage as eye candy.

I wanted to ride a SS bike since I saw Cruise cruz'n in Top Gun back in '86.
You don't have to admit that you wanted one since them (you old guys.)


Don't hate. The rest of us either don't have the cash or need it to go other places instead of buying this bike. I am glad to see he is getting it and it won't wind up in a museum somewhere and never get riden.
