Others look at them as a chance to make a tech-savvy statement or even to make a declaration of being “hip.” If you consider yourself to be in one of the later groups, then be forewarned: the following line of products may need a little bit of extra effort in order for you to catch up to them.

The good folks over at Italian-based Ducati Motor Holding, makers of arguably the world’s finest and most elegant motorcycles, have teamed up with SanDisk to create a line of flash drives and memory cards that have a look and feel inspired by the style and elegance of the legendary Ducati speedsters. Making an impressionable statement of style will be an immediate perk of owning any one of these drives.

With 45MB/sec of transfer speed, you cannot lose with being able to copy a gigabyte worth of data to and from the card in about 20 seconds. High-end professional photographers benefit too by finally having a reliable compact flash option that’s compatible with today’s medium format/digital-back cameras. As Sandisk states, “just like the Ducati motorcycles, this card can endure the abuse of adverse conditions-it’s built to perform in the extreme environments and temperatures of the most demanding photo shoots.” That pretty much sums it up.
