2009 Ducati Supermono 549R (well, maybe)

By using half a 1098R engine and most of the new 696 Monster's frame and brakes, this reimagining of the Supermono could be offered at an affordable price. Dutch motorcycle blog Oliepeil, which commissioned this illustration, envisions it coming in under 120kg and making up to 100bhp in race trim. It might seem scarcely believable that Ducati would be prepared to expand its current model range to this degree, but with 10 new models arriving by 2010 and several other single-cylinder sportsbikes on the horizon, we wouldn't rule it out.

Yup. I think the production run was under 500 units too. I just wondered if anyone ran supermono in the US. I've seen a few of the home-built bikes that people have built around CR450 motors and it seems like it'd be a lot of fun.
