Oberdan Bezzi, the famed automobile designer has finally come up with a conceptual Ducati 798 Desmosport R Concept layout to produce a version of this superbike which can be easily afforded by its aficionados who wish to own one, but can’t because it is just too costly. The concept scrounges a good amount of things from the previous versions of Ducati superbikes but at the same time it coalesce only the changes which are needed in order to make this new superbike within the reach of the buyer with low budget. Moreover, it should be convenient to manage on the street, keeping in mind the weight factor of superbike which is always on a heavier side, be it any brand.
A midst a lot of assumptions about the avouched Ducati 799 Superbike which is under formulation in Borgo Panigale as this news is written. Ducati does have a lesser-displacement version of its 1199 Panigale in its workshop, although what it will be called and exactly what displacement will be used in it is still a matter of guesstimate. For now, going along Oberdan Bezzi down the old lane of the thought process which has brought up his Ducati 798 Desmosport R concept will make more sense.
To produce a superbike for the sports bike market, Bezzi isn’t focusing on the water-cooled 1,200cc Superquadro motor, but the tried and tested Desmo Due air-cooled torso which is found in the existing Monster and Hypermotard lines. The aim has been set at 100 hp strong figurine with up to 365 lbs of dry weight overall and under a price tag of 9,000 EURO. Thus Bezzi has to hit the same chord that NCR and Radical Ducati have been brushing on for the past couple of years, although at various ends of the cost continuum.
Evidently, while pulling in some delineation and technical aspects from the Panigale, the new Ducati 798 Desmosport R concept still features a conventional trellis-frame which is very traditional in Ducati. However, it seems very untrue with the specification of performance and price mentioned here that this concept superbike could be an 800cc-machine, keeping in mind that the 1,100cc variant of the air-cooled twin also puts out an average sum of 100 hp in its EVO form. But, a flyweight air-cooled Ducati sports-bike is something which the firm has been bellowing since a long time. Now it has built one.
