    Someone already stole a Desmosedicci


    The question is... do you believe it or is it another case of made up bullshit?

    I bet the gunman was Brad Pitt.

    Desmosedici owner hijacked at gunpoint - Visordown Motorcycle news : General news

    A CALIFORNIAN man lost his brand new Ducati Desmosedici when a lone hijacker robbed the nightclub owner of his machine at gunpoint.
    Dan Travers, 42, was riding home from a friend's house in Santa Monica aboard his 40,000 steed when a lone gunman approached Travers while he was sat waiting at a set of traffic lights.

    "The guy appeared from behind me while I was waiting at a stop light," said Travers. "He told me to get off the bike and keep walking or he'd shoot. I couldn't see his face as he was wearing a helmet and dark visor. There was no one else around."

    Travers was one of the first customers to take delivery of the new Desmosedici in California.

    "I'm heartbroken," said Travers on losing his MotoGP replica. "I've been waiting for over a year for it to arrive and I've lost it in less than a week."

    It's unknown whether the thief targetted Travers or just got lucky.

    Let's just hope he's not turned it into a streetfighter.

    If this is real, how the heck is the thief going to sell that thing afterwards? It'd be like trying to fence the Mona Lisa. Guess the victim will be watching ebay and craigslist a lot.

    Of course it could be one of those deals where it's already on a cargo ship down to a druglord in central america or something...

    I doubt the guy thought it was a Honda

    My thoughts exactly. Maybe they already had a buyer who just intends to put the bike on a pedestal and never ride it.
