Simply outrageous best describes Ducati's Desmosedici RR, a modern marvel of moto tech that defies all rules of logic. Sure, this MotoGP refugee represents complete and total overkill on the street, but even more astounding is the fact this bike need not even exist. With no homologation rule within the sport's premier class, the D16RR provides 200 horses of heart-pounding proof that the storied Italian manufacturer truly is fueled by passion in its pursuit of performance excellence. We called it "magic in the streets" and "a masterpiece with a warranty." How could we not consider the world's first street-legal MotoGP replica to be anything less than the year's Best Superbike?
