F4CC or Desmocidici

While at Indy there were 2 of the Ducati Desmos on display. One with the race exhaust and one with the street exhaust. Both stunning bikes. After reading the post on the F4CC I'm wondering which you would rather have. They made a lot more of the Ducs but it was a MotorGP bike with lights while the CC is more in line with the standard bike. Ideally having both would be the answer but given the choice I would have my F4R and the Desmo instead of the F4r and the CC

if i had the money, i'd get the d16.

main reason, even without the race exhaust its the greatest sounding bike made. the bike just looks different without being too different.

yes the f4cc is a nice looking bike with handmade parts,but like you said its more of a standard bike with one off parts.

i don't think either one will ever appreciate in value at all.

One is an Italian Motorcycle worth owning and the other is a Ducati

My choice

Here's my choice between the 2. I've parked my MV beside a Desmo & there is no contest for the top choice. My 312 Corse has almost everything the F4cc does except for the swing arm. And I do covet that swing arm.


This is the bike that knocks them both into the dirt. 135kg & the 135hp NCR Hailwood race engine.


As far as sex appeal, nothing beats the MH. My buddy has a Desmo & at this years Laguna GP, when we got to Ducati Island it was full. They let me on & told him to park out with the farm equipment.


The MV will scare the snot out me. The Vyrus is the most fun to ride fast.

Beware of the lollipop of mediocrity. One lick and you'll suck forever.

MV Agusta 312 Corse / Ducati MH900e "Carbon Dream" / NCR "New Blue" / Vyrus 984 / 1963 MV Agusta 175

Definitely the Ducati Desmo! My mate has one, which I've ridden, and it's freaking unbelievable.. As Roadbiking said, the sound is truly orgasmic and like nothing else on the road!

Is that your Vyrus?. I have been speaking to Vyrus about the 987. What are you r thoughts on it?. I have a Mhe also
I would get the Ducati ,mainly for the sound the thing makes. Like nothing I've ever heard before. Its orgasmic
Where as the Cc, although beautiful is just another F4

I was told by a previous Desmo owner that at every 15k miles (24,000km) is a MAJOR service.

That is a complete motor tear down and 350 hours worth of work. He was quoted $35,000 AUD for this service for parts and labour.

Yep moto GP engine requires moto GP expenses, nope no thanks.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!
