Looks like Toyota may be trying to on-up Honda at SEMA with the truck/motorcycle combo. Where Honda was able to fit an off-road bike into the bed of the Ridgeline, Toyota has shown up with a truck that can carry the bike and all the accessories. The Tundra Ducati Transporter is based on a Tundra CrewMax, which has been modified to accept a 6.5-inch bed.
The truck comes with flip up bedsides, a motorized loading ramp by Rampage, integrated tool and spares storage, and popup solar panels for accessory power.
It is powered by a supercharged version of the Tundra’s 5.7-liter V8, making a total of 500 hp. It comes with TRD Lowering Kit, TRD Dual Exhaust and TRD Sway Bar.
Press release after the jump.
The Ducati Desmosedici RR is the only street legal MotoGP bike ever produced. The ultimate track day bike requires the ultimate transport; that’s where Toyota comes in with the 2009 Tundra Ducati Desmosedici transporter.
The Tundra/Ducati Transporter is built on a Tundra CrewMax, which has been modified to accept a 6.5-inch bed. The transporter is tied thematically to the bike, incorporating Ducati Corse style along with high tech materials and execution to create synergies for two companies obsessed with quality and performance. Additional features include major bed innovations such as flip up bedsides, a motorized loading ramp by Rampage, integrated tool and spares storage, and popup solar panels for accessory power.
Performance is enhanced through the full catalog of TRD Performanceparts such as supercharger, exhaust, intake, suspension and brakes. The interior treatment by Fast Ed’s Interiors combines high tech style with Italian flair.
