It has been rumored that retired Formula One driver Michael Schumacher is selling his Desmo. It is #8, if he owns 8, who owns 1-8? After all he was and still is one of the highest paid, most successful, and most famous athletes of all time! Just a thought...

My guess is that the one that was sitting in the factory museum was #1. The others probably went to some rich friends of the company who we've never heard of.

I´m guessing Loris has the second, since he was the first to win a race on a D16. And even if Michael Schumacher is a great driver, he has no affiliation with Ducati at all.

I hope Giancarlo Falappa got one, not that i would trust him to ride it :D He was the first one to start doing wheelies over the finishing line.. EVER!

You guys think too small.
I would take the bike AND Angelina!
And make Tom hold the video camera, while Brad washed and waxed the bike.
(I mean come on, Tom is so short, he is a human tripod)
And I would ride off into the sunset with the video in pocket.......


LOL

Tom took delivery of the first model into the United States, not sure if it was numbered #1 or not, Michael Jordan took delivery of his shortly there after. This came from the dealer who deliver the bike to him

Just got back from a factory tour. They mentioned the Pitt/Cruise thing, and said the Ducati CEO (or some bigwig at the company, I don't recall) has the first one.
