Ducati's Desmosedici RR

You may love or hate Tom Cruise, but one thing is for sure, if you are a motorcycle fan, you are going to be slightly jealous of him this week.

The USAToday reports that Tom is first in line to get his hands on the new Ducati Desmosedici RR. There are only 1,500 of them being made and he's getting the first one in the US!

According to the article the cool ride is, "bristling with titanium, magnesium and carbon fiber technology that can scoot up to 200 mph." Everyone should have one, right?

No, don't think you'll be just like Tom Cruise and pick one up (even if you had the $72K) because they are all sold out!

I just happen to be one of the lucky 1500 , who's been waiting for over a year for the rr. The only reason he's getting his before myself or others is I go down on my knees going into a apex, where it doesn't matter for Tom, he goes down anytime

Tom cruise is probably the most adventurous hollywood actor alive. reminds me alittle of Steve McQueen with all the bikes and cars. Must be nice to be able to spend £50,000 pounds on a custom built 170mph motorbike and not have to worry about the cost. one thing is for sure, I bet the bike insurance will be pretty hefty on his new machine. he must be obsessed with bikes, he already owns more than a dozen of them.
