Presented directly from the Ducati Corse racing department within the Ducati factory in Bologna, Italy and offered under reserve, both machines represent "motorcycle exotica" at its most desirable and a genuine chance-of-a-lifetime purchase for international collectors.
Peter Wallman, specialist at RM Auctions - Europe comments, "Ducati represents the pinnacle of two-wheeled desirability with a reputation for world-beating performance and unmistakable design. We are very excited to be working with yet another leading manufacturer and to have this exclusive opportunity to offer items that are not normally available to the public. The sale offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire very unique pieces of Ducati history, not to be missed."
Built in the Ducati factory in Borgo Panigale, Bologna 7-11 December 2009, Casey Stoner's Ducati Desmosedici GP10 "CS1" was first started for bench testing on 14 December 2009 before being track tested by the Australian rider in Sepang, Malaysia in February 2010. Stoner first competed with CS1 in Qatar in April 2010 and raced it to victory in the Australian GP at Phillip Island in October 2010. The machine took pole positions in Qatar, Phillip Island and Valencia and powered the Australian to podium positions in Valencia, Assen and Catalunya. Its final Grand Prix was in Valencia, November 2010 having logged a total of 4,232km.
Valentino Rossi's Ducati Desmosedici GP11 "VR2" was built at the Ducati factory 6-10 December 2010 and was first started for bench testing two days later. VR2's first track test for Rossi was carried out in the February 2011 Sepang tests and first competed in the Qatar Grand Prix the following month. It recorded a podium position at Le Mans, France in May 2011 and competed in its last race at the Dutch TT in Assen, having logged a total of 2,342km.
"The release of two very special machines like these is an extremely rare occasion for us, so the lucky buyer must not only enter into a confidentiality agreement, but also become a close member of the ‘Ducati family'!" said Ducati Corse General and Technical Director, Filippo Preziosi. "The Desmosedici GP10 and GP11 were two very interesting bikes in our GP project history and therefore will represent exciting opportunities for serious collectors."
RM's highly-anticipated Monaco auction will also offer the private Saltarelli Collection of historic Ducati motorcycles at the same event, providing a wonderful celebration of Ducatis history. In addition to the motorcycles, the two-day sale will also feature a magnificent roster of blue-chip automobiles.

Residual impact force transmitted to the head, 31% below the limit set by the standard. The result is achieved thanks to the numerous FEM simulations and in-house tests carried out.
HIC index 48% below the limit set by the standard. The HIC (Head Injury Criterion) index measures the level of brain trauma risk due to the accelerations of impact. In this case too, the result is achieved thanks to the numerous FEM simulations and in-house tests carried out.
71% more compact visor movement. This allows use of the space saved to increase the thickness of the absorption material, benefitting safety.
9% bigger visor window 9%. This gives the rider better visibility of the track in front and laterally when bent over the bike riding straight ahead, benefitting active safety.
3% smaller frontal section and 6% small lateral section: the helmet is more compact and lighter, without reducing passive safety and comfort.
Aerodynamic resistance (Cd) reduced by 17%. The lower the Cd value, the lower the amount of stress transmitted to the rider’s neck, with an increase in comfort and reduction of fatigue. Attentive design, computational fluid dynamic tests and wind tunnel testing have obtained an average 17% reduction of the Cd while racing.
193% increase in vent surface. The position and size of the vents and computational fluid dynamic wind tunnel testing have generated a ventilation system capable of effectively removing heat and humidity.

Having just had his steel plate removed from his near fatal accident last year, Vale will get back on track.!
Valentino Rossi (Ducati Team) 8th, 2’03.245 (39 laps):
"Paradoxically, we actually started too early this morning! It would’ve been better to start at 11 like the others, because before that the asphalt was quite dirty, and by the time the conditions started to improve, the tyre already had about fifteen laps on it. We decided to save the second tyre for the afternoon, but it started raining after lunch. As a result, we didn’t get much done today. We didn’t even start working with the new software that we have available for this test. On the plus side, we were able to confirm that the feeling in the wet is still pretty good with the GP12. Weather permitting, and with a couple more tyres at our disposal, I think that tomorrow we’ll be able to work a little more comprehensively and understand things a bit more."
