The 2009 Tundra Ducati Desmosedici transporter is built on a Toyota Tundra CrewMax pickup, with the frame stretched to fit a 198.2 cm (6.5 ft) bed with some storage room for umbrella girls and other track necessities.
There are flip-up bed sides, a Rampage powered loading ramp, and something called "Italian flair." And of course it’s red.
"Toyota approached us for this project," said Michael Lock, Ducati North America boss. "It is a partnership that gives Ducati some visibility to an enthusiast crowd that we otherwise don’t normally reach."
The Ducatundra will likely start to appear in big numbers at the next Sturgis rally, but it won’t be carryin’ no Desmosedicis, yo.
And if it doesn’t turn up there, Sturgis-goers can take comfort in the Stinger Trailer Canada addition of Pod-ium trailers to their line-up. Pod-ium makes a range of trailers for carrying motorcycles, even Ducatis, to Sturgis and other places. See www.pod-ium.com for more on that.
