This may be old news, caught it on DESMO:



Join us at Ducati New York on January 18th at 7:00pm to celebrate the
North American unveiling of "New Blue"—a modern replica of the 1977
Daytona winning 750SS campaigned by Cook Neilson and Phil Schilling
throughout the mid 1970's. Cook Neilson and Phil Schilling built the
750SS into a remarkably successful race bike and nicknamed the
motorcycle "Old Blue" in reference to the team's attractive livery.
New Blue began life as a Ducati SportClassic Sport 1000 S and was sent
to NCR's factory for cosmetic replication and race preparation. NCR was
able to remove an astounding eighty-four pounds of dry weight and add
an additional 30 horsepower to the motorcycle.

Cook Neilson, Ducati North America CEO, Michael Lock and a
representative from NCR will be on hand. Cocktails will be served
throughout the evening. Please help us commemorate this occasion!

For more information, please contact:

Ducati New York
155 Avenue of the Americas (6th and Spring)
New York, NY 10013
212-989-1414

the street in front will be closed off for Motorcycle parking as well.

When I took delivery of my bike today, Bill really wanted people to come to this. I get the feeling they want this to be a pretty kicking party.

Just passed by the shop... they took the whole street out for parking. 20 or so cases of peroni sitting by the front door.

In case it snows, if anyone lives uptown, I'd love to play chase to someone to get home safe. Getting worried.

I chickened out this morning and took the subway into work. The forecast wasn't too inviting, and wouldn't you know it... it's sprinkling snow as I type.
I caught a quick preview of "New Blue" last night and I left there wishing I had $65k laying around!
I'll be walking to the unveiling from work in my orange "blaze" camo if anyone should care to say hi!

One thing that surprised me was the size of the 1098. A look at the specs doesn't do it justice. It's got a profile like a razor-blade. It's beautifully designed and by far the sexiest bike I've ever seen. It doesn't take a second glance to see how it weighs in at 100 lbs less than either the Busa or the ZX-14. This is a special breed of bike. Nothing is wasted on the 1098. Trully astonishing motorcycle.

Anyone who missed New Blue, the 1098's and ther Hyper Motard they are at the Ducati booth at the Javits Center. They are all sweet.
