This beast is the F40 of bikes.
Judge for yourself: it's fast, it's light, it's Italian, it's red, it's very close to the racing version, and it absolutely mindblowing.
Moreover, the production history is also similar. It was planned to release a limited edition of 300 units, but it quickly turned out that customers were ready to buy much more (despite very high price). At the end they sold 1,500 units.

I suspect it has too much electronics (wheelie control, engine modes, suspension modes etc.) to be truly like F40 which hade absolutely none (not sure if F40 even had ABS).

But overall Ducatis are Ferraris of motorcycle world for sure. Maybe not the most consequential brand, but the most desirable.

It is, of course, easy to act like a purist and say that electronics are bad, but for a 200 horsepower bike, they probably are necessary, at least for 99% of riders. Otherwise you won't have the confidence to even use 50% of the performance potential.

That bike was very close to MotoGP, so definitely not for an average driver.
And the performance for 2007 was just amazing!
0-200 in 7,3 seconds...
While fastest cars at that time were only starting to get below 10 seconds. Only Veyron could compete at the straight.
And at the road course it was most likely demolishing everything stock road legal.
