We haven’t had a sketch by Oberdan Bezzi on the site in a while, but the Italian designer has inked this Ducati concept that we thought would help everyone get through the work week. Coining the name “Desmodoctor” it should be clear to whom Obiboi is paying homage to with this design, as Bezzi imagines what sort of “gift” the Bologna company would give Rossi to play around with when he’s not racing the Ducati Desmosedici GP11 or GP12.
A modified Ducati Desmosedici RR, Bezzi has taken the Rossi/Ducati McColor scheme and applied it as artfully as he can to the supermotard design — certainly no small feat. While the paint will be hit or miss with some people, what really intrigues us is the changes done to the Desmosedici that go beyond just the color pallete. Slash-cut exhaust tips, true spoke & hub motard wheels, and a raised ride height from the different suspension pieces. It’s a unique look based off the GP-turned-street racer, though we think the 200+ hp will be a bit overkill on dirt-laden fire trails.
