Eraldo Ferracci, the racing legend turned dealer, will join other dealers in exhibiting at the Philadelphia Motorcycle Show Oct. 9-11 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center. Ferracci’s dealership, Fast by Ferraci, will be displaying a Ducati Desmosedici RR and a MV Agusta F4CC. Ferracci himself will make an appearance Sunday.
The 2008 Desmosedici RR had a limited production run of 1,500 units. They were pre-sold for $72,500 each. The bike produces a claimed 200 hp at 13,800 rpm.
The 2006 F4CC had a much more limited run: Only 100 were made. They retailed for $120,000. Each has a platinum plate at the top of the steering column bearing the model number (1 to 100).
This is the inaugural Philadelphia Motorcycle Show. “Pennsylvania consistently ranks fourth in the nation for new motorcycles sold, and with more than 800,000 registered riders in Pennsylvania, it’s prime time for a major show to return to the Philadelphia area,” show manager David Mockus said in a press release.
Show days and hours are as follows: Friday, 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $5 for kids ages 6 to 11. Kids under 5 are admitted free. Visit www.phillyexpos.com for discount tickets and more information.
