One of the most important things about picking a motorbike to speed around the city on, is that it looks completely and utterly cool when you’re doing so and in that respect I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything as beautiful as this army green 140HP Ducati 848 Evo.
This sports infused cafe racer has been built purely for their own enjoyment by Austrian based National Custom Tech Motorcycles and so I’m not sure if it’s actually for sale, but goddamn I want one. It acts as a true testament to what NCT can actually achieve in custom bikes – here are some of the mods that they applied to make it look so gnarly, courtesy of HiConsumption, alongside some sick pictures of it:
Initially, they stripped the bike down to the bare essentials and got started with a new subframe.
It now features a hand-made aluminum tail with leather upholstery and a LED taillight, carbon fiber fenders and side covers, newly-installed Ohlins suspension at the front and rear, a new exhaust system featuring an Akrapovic silencer, and wheels now held within Diablo Supercorsa SC2 tires.
Finish her off with an olive green paint job and black powder coating on the trellis frame and wheels and you have a race-ready cafe racer suited for the street.
Not bad, not bad at all. Now I just need to get my hands on one of these babies, but I doubt I’ll ever have the cash to afford that if they just make them for fun. Maybe I could do the next best thing and get them to teach me how to do it?
For more sick bikes, watch this guy escape from police motorbikes on a moped in a completely sick chase. Nicely.
