I'm not usually one to be drawn to the red vehicle, be it car or moto. It's a little too flashy, a little too "look at me" fresh cheez. This year though, at the 2012 International Motorcycle show in New York, I found a few compelling reasons to reconsider my preconceived notions and heed the call of the hawt hawt hawtest of hues: RED. That smokin' bike at the top there is the one and only Ducati 1199 Panicale; the ultimate "OBJECT OF DESIRE". Simply looking at this beauty makes my temperature rise.

Oh my.
