RSD Desmo Tracker 07 April 16
The RSD Desmo Tracker is finally finished, tested and thrashed just enough to ensure she’s ready to do battle on the streets of San Diego.
The DesmoTracker started life out as a Ducati Desmocedici Moto GP Replica. With much of the original bike still intact and 100% functional she has been modified for a yet to exist dirt track with mile long perfectly flat banked corners. The Desmo’s 200 plus HP GP Spec motor would test the sanity of any man brave enough to throw a leg over her. Modifications are vast and include an aluminum hand-made body mounted to the original frame. Fabricated cromoly sub frame and swingarm, dirttrack specific suspension settings coupled with new dirt track triple clamps, 19 inch Performance Machine Flat track wheels and Goodyear tires give the Tracker it’s aggressive stance. Titanium pipes with courted cross over’s allow the exhaust to exit at an incredible pitch. Paint is by Chris Woods at Airtrix in Santa Barbra. All modifications were performed at Roland Sands Design facility in Los Alamitos, Ca.
The Desmo Tracker was a difficult build in many ways. As you can imagine digging your hands into the Mona Lisa is not done without a measure of respect and reserve. The words Moto GP and Dirttrack couldn’t be further from the other in terms of function and aesthetic on two wheels. RSDs job was too blend the two into something that could be at home on the show room floor ready for public consumption with a push button starter, comfortable egro’s, street and dirt worthy suspension, lights and 180 plus horsepower on tap. They feel they have obtained that goal.
