And if the dream is a Ducati 1199 Panigale, but you do not get what you have saved, perhaps Ducati should include a sports bike a little cheaper than the Superbike to allow access to the brand to the "somewhat" less wealthy. More or less this is what Oberdan Bezzi has thought when he got down to work with his pencils to design this Ducati 798 Desmosport R. The best thing is that the reasoning has a good part of it, because currently, if you want to buy a sports Ducati, you only have the Ducati 848 (which has been on the market for some time) and it is not exactly cheap.
In Oberdan's words, they could catch a about 100 hp engine, mount it on a Trellis type chassis that works so well on other motorcycles, install brakes that are not from the top of the manufacturer's range and some "normal" suspensions. We put this under a more or less beautiful and current fairing, and the result could be on the market for about 9,000 euros. Would it be a best seller? It has all the pint.
The only one I can think of is that something like this could mean a decrease in product quality, with the respective loss of fame that it has cost them so many years to recover at Ducati. Because let's not forget, the Ducati of the seventies / eighties were a nightmare on wheels, which still remains in the memory of the most veteran. And Ducati Monsters are still selling very well, so throwing rocks at your own roof doesn't make much sense. While, we will continue dreaming seeing the perfect sketches of Oberdan Bezzi.
