A pair of New Blues arrived in Daytona with the NCR factory crew, headed by Michele Poggipolini. All of us with a lust for titanium, magnesium, aluminum and carbon-fiber will recognize Poggipolini as the company supplying the world with awesome bits and pieces, building abject trickness for most of the Formula One grid and just about every supercar made. Michele is the grandson of Calisto Poggipolini, who started the high-tech manufacturing company in 1950. Poggipolini and NCR combined in 2002, and by 2005 NCR prototype Ducati-based racers were being produced for public consumption. And they were winning…frequently. In 25 races, NCR bikes have won 20 times, with the Millona One Shot model doing the dominating. New Blue doesn't rival the Millona in weight or power but is advertised as an out-of-the-box track bike for the discerning Ducatisti, delivered with slicks and no street equipment. And as Pegram, Neilson and I discovered, NCR has built a magical machine.
