DUCATI PARTNERS WITH TOYOTA TO CREATE ULTIMATE TRACK DAY TRANSPORTER

Cupertino, CA (11 November 2008) --Ducati North America and Toyota unveiled the ultimate transporter for motorcycle enthusiasts at SEMA last week -- the 2009 Tundra Ducati Desmosedici transporter.

This unique and exciting concept vehicle is tied thematically to the Ducati Desmosedici RR, the only street legal MotoGP bike ever produced, incorporating the signature Ducati red paint finish with white stripes.

"Toyota approached us for this project based on Ducati's world-championship racing record and our reputation for the best in technology and performance," said Michael Lock, CEO Ducati North America. "It is a partnership that gives Ducati some visibility to an enthusiast crowd that we otherwise don't normally reach."

The Tundra/Ducati transporter is built on a Tundra CrewMax, which engineers stretched the frame of to accommodate a 6.5-foot bed set-up with storage options for track day support. Additional features of the vehicle include major bed innovations such as flip up bedsides, a motorized loading ramp by Rampage, integrated tool and spares storage as well as popup solar panels for accessory power. The interior treatment by Fast Ed's Interiors combines high tech style with Italian flair.
