Yes, but does it come with the trademark wraparound glasses? And will your hair support the appropriate windblown mane of wavy locks? These are the questions you must ask yourself before entertaining a bid on Bono's Ducati 916. This particular 916 is even more special than your run of the mill V-twin Italian scooter with a desmodromic valvetrain and a host of racing features like a single-sided swingarm and underseat exhaust. The ownership of this bike has a quite an '80s-rock provenance to go with it. First, it was wheeled by the late Michael Hutchence of INXS, before being owned by U2's Adam Clayton and ultimately ending up in Bono's care. The Ducati is up for auction to raise funds for Riders for Health, an organization that provides healthcare to remote locations in Africa and uses motorcycles to reach those in need. The auction will be held in Birmingham, UK at the International Motorcycle and Scooter show on the 2nd of December. While a Ducati might be a rush to ride, we're betting that Bono gets off more on the thrill of sharing the wealth.
