A CALIFORNIAN man lost his brand new Ducati Desmosedici when hijackers robbed the nightclub owner of his machine at gunpoint.

Dan Travers, 42, was riding home from a friend's house in Santa Monica aboard his £40,000 steed when a lone gunman approached Travers while he was sat waiting at a set of traffic lights.

"The guy appeared from behind me while I was waiting at a stop light," said Travers. "He told me to get off the bike and keep walking or he'd shoot. I couldn't see his face as he was wearing a helmet and dark visor. There was no one else around."

Travers was one of the first customers to take delivery of the new Desmosedici in California.

"I'm heartbroken," said Travers on losing his MotoGP replica. "I've been waiting for over a year for it to arrive and I've lost it in less than a week."

It's unknown whether the thief targetted Travers or just got lucky.

Probably Brad Pitt thinking it was Tom.

I cannot fucking believe this!!! What a situation to be in; the D16 owner certainly did the right thing: perhaps he has kids at home and no human life is worth a Desmosedici. I hope people will not come up with some stupid jokes or statements in this thread. I am sorry for your loss man, I really am.

I hope he had state farm! Iam glad i wasn't the first knowing most of my miles are going to be on the road. Now there are only 1499 in the world. The resale value just went up on the bikes if he doesn't get it back. Or maybe my insurance will go up! That sucks man, if this story is true just be glad he didn't smoke u in the head!

Can you guys imagine if this poor guy is reading our comments to his unfortunate event? What would he think? Let us keep this in mind before we post something, ok?

Who cares. Maybe he was in on it you dont know him or what happened. I say its open season baby. Maybe he couldn't make the payments and wanted it to be stolen. We dont know the real story. I will let him buy mine for 100,000

Anyway, my heart goes out to the gentleman.

Serious bummer.

That occurred to me as well. The answer is it's going overseas. Very common thing with exotic hardware in California.

Either overseas or sold through private sale for all parts that don't have a serial number on them and believe me there is enough money to be made on those alone. This fucking thing has ruined my evening
