    So you want to ride a MotoGP bike?


    Well now apparently you can.

    You've probably seen the internet buzz around Ducati's new super expensive, super exclusive V4 Superleggera. Seems you can purchase "experiences" beyond just the motorcycle -

Even more amazingly, 30 Superleggera V4 owners will have an exclusive opportunity to enjoy the “MotoGP Experience” and live the dream of every racing enthusiast. For the very first time, they will be able to ride a circuit on the Desmosedici GP20 used by Dovizioso and Petrucci, with the close support of the Ducati Corse technicians.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the MotoGP bike quietly has the Superleggera engine in it. How many mere mortals could handle real MotoGP power delivery..?

    I feel like a motoGP bike would be the most dangerous in the hands of your general club racer - someone that uses a bit of wheel spin and can push a front end (even if they don't know it). A person that is fast enough to need heat in the tires and heat in the brakes to make it work, but not quite capable enough of getting it done. Not sure how the electronics would react to someone in that range, riding it like a superbike. I'd love to find out.
