Ducati announced yesterday that only 1500 Desmosedici RRs will be produced. With 1250 orders already received, this means only 250 of the MotoGP replicas remain available. By limiting numbers, Ducati hopes the 200bhp bike will increase in value even before customers take delivery. Production is set to begin later this month, with all deliveries taking place by the end of next year. The first 500 bikes will be delivered to buyers who already own a 999R.
