NCR Unveils Desmosedici-powered M16
NCR M16 Unveiled
The new NCR M16 was just unveiled at World Ducati Week 2010. This official press launch of the NCR M16 took place at 10AM on Thursday June 10th at the NCR booth within the Misano Paddock.
At NCR, you find a passionate pursuit to use the very best material and technology available today to build the very best performance parts and motorcycles.
Around since 1967, NCR has built very exclusive performance motorcycles. They strive to offer the highest technology with unmatched quality for all our customers. Every motorcycle is hand built with the greatest attention to detail.
NCR continues this trend with its latest introduction of a truly exclusive and technologically advanced Ippoliti Designed NCR Millona 16 or simply the NCR M16.
Starting with a Ducati Desmosedici DD16RR, the NCR M16 utilizes the latest carbon fiber and titanium to create a clean and flowing design with functionality as its main criteria.
You can see the family evolution of the NCR Millona One Shot air cooled motorcycle in the lines of the new NCR M16. The NCR tradition of unmatched power to weight ration continues to be the main driving force in the design and development.
Upon closer inspection, you will note that this is no ordinary motorcycle. It was conceived from the start to be the most exclusive motorcycle in the world by using the strongest and lightest material in the world.
By carefully developing every single component to be as light and strong as possible while achieving the very best performance. Without gas, the NCR M16 achieves an incredible weight of 145 kg (319 lbs). Since there are no rules to follow, the claimed weight is actually lighter than the imposed minimum weight of a MotoGP motorcycle.
To achieve this weight, NCR designed and developed its own carbon fiber frame while improving the air intake system by allowing an unobstructed flow of air through the steering head.
Again with the goal of achieving the lightest weight and the strongest performance, NCR developed a new swingarm in carbon fiber as well. The fuel tank, faring, subframe/tail, fender, front faring stay are all carbon as well.
Even the NCR wheels are been projected and manufactured in carbon fiber.
All mechanical parts are either titanium or avionic grade aluminum with material grades derived from Formula One. This is of course in the NCR tradition.
The motor develops over 200 horsepower at the rear wheel. WIth the latest generation MotoGP suspension in front and rear, the racing heritage continues. Also the brakes are from the highest racing application.
The NCR M16 uses its own electronics derived from racing with full traction control, data collection and recording, 3 user selectable maps, as well as constant fuel remapping based on environment and gas conditions.
