SEMA: Toyota Tundra Ducati Desmosedici Transporter with 500HP
Toyota showed off three Tundra concepts in Las Vegas but the coolest one in town was by far was the Ducati Desmosedici Transporter. Built to carry the only street legal MotoGP bike ever produced, the scorching hot Ducati Desmosedici RR, the customized Tundra has been modified to accept a 6.5-inch bed that features flip up bedsides and a motorized loading ramp. The pickup truck is of course tied thematically to the bike, incorporating the Italian motorcycle company's red paint finish with white stripes. Power is provided by a 5.7-liter supercharged V8 engine producing 500HP and 550-lbs/ft of torque.
Additional features include integrated tool and spares storage, popup solar panels for accessory power, 22-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico tires, a lowering kit and an upgraded braking system.
