First Ducati Desmosedici RR in America goes to Tom Cruise

Put on any random Tom Cruise movie and you're likely to see him riding a motorbike... without a helmet, of course, as that would ruin our view of his pretty face. But the Hollywood superstar is evidently an avid motorcycle rider, and has sunk a small portion of his enormous earnings into one of the fastest, most expensive superbikes he could get his hands on: the Ducati Desmosedici RR.

For a reported $72,500, Tom gets the first Desmosedici RR to arrive in the United States. The roadgoing version of the racing bike ridden by MotoGP world champion Casey Stoner, only 1,500 of which will be made, built around an 800cc V4 kicking out 200 horsepower. The first 500 Desmosedici RRs were slated to go to owners of the 999R, but while Cruise is known to be a previous Ducati owner, a simple "show me the money" moment probably put him at the top of the list.
