News from Bologna friends is that Ducati's 'supernaked' Streetfighter has been voted the "best-looking bike at the 2008 Milan show". True, it's as pleasing to the eye as Mariacarla Boscono's left tit... (she's the supermodel friends, the gorgeous Dolores keeps The Dirk appraised of things in the world of high-flying fashion)... but it also goes like a rat up a drain-pipe (not sure about Mariacarla on that score).

The new, Bologna-made supernaked Streetfighter claimed more than 25 percent of the 20,000 votes cast by visitors to this year's EICMA event. Second and third went to the Aprilia RSV4 Factory and the MV Agusta Brutale 1078RR.With 155hp of Ducati L-Twin muscle harnessed in a stripped-down, super-light, 167kg bike (S Version), the Streetfighter was, according to Italian magazine, Motociclismo, the star of the Milan show.

With face-melting grunt from the upgraded 'Testastretta Evoluzione' 1098cc L-Twin engine, Ducati's trademark Trellis frame, single-sided swingarm, Monobloc brakes, Öhlins suspension, lightweight forged wheels and Ducati Traction Control, the Streetfighter is loaded with 'the good stuff'.

It's the stuff, in fact, of naked bike legends. I'm not sure what you might have been gazing upon naked this morning friends, but the Ducati Streetfighter supernaked will come in a close second.

And, oh yes, 500,000 people visited Milan's EICMA this year (in case you were thinking motorcycles struggle to pull a crowd).

Ride free friends. The Dirk. (Damn, seem to be stuck with the image of Mariacarla's tit...)
