German motorcycle customizer Walt Siegl has developed a stylish, modern cafe racer Leggero 2012. While only a prototype, but Walt expects to release a small batch of motorcycles based on two-valve Ducati 900cc engines. In a single instance of such a bike would cost quite expensive, but small-scale production may slightly improve the situation without loss of quality of the final product.
Walt Siegel writes, “I wanted to use the elements of a classic sports design that can be easily recognized from the exhaust and ending frame design.”
Features of Leggero Series:
• Motor Ducati 900
• Keihin FCR carburetors 39mm
• Homemade steel exhaust systems in the style of Conti
• Frame made of chromium-molybdenum (4130) tubes, made in the image frame Ducati Verlicchi TT1/TT2 and weighs just 8.6 kg
• Fork Showa, Öhlins shock absorbers
• Body of carbon fiber: fuel tank, tail
In the design and construction of bike Walt Siegel enjoyed by many other specialists. For example, the frame and foot redesigned guys from M & E Design, who used the program “Solidworks” for all analyzes, calculations, tests of strength, etc. Matt Tanner of “Tannermatic” made the molds for the production of fuel tank and tail. Dave Goddard helped with painting cafe racer, Eric Cobalt engine, Vivienne Smith, upholstered seat, and Alex Vogel, a modern electrical system.
Specific price is not specified, because according to the customer possible variations in the suspension, paint, packaging, etc.
