New Desmosedici set to be Christmas hit

A new version of Loris Capirossi's Ducati Desmosedici will be available in time for Christmas, although this variation of the bike will stand at just a few inches high. A radio controlled version of the popular Italian's 2006 model is set to hit shelves in the next few weeks, with a survey of children in 10 European countries between the ages of 5 and 10 showing the potential for the toy to become a festive smash.

The children taking part in the Duracell survey picked the Nikko toy as one of their favourites from a shortlist, and unsurprisingly it was the standout hit with the Italian contingent. Having been chosen in the top three in a further six countries, the Desmosedici can now proudly boast the title of Europe's favourite toy.
