Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/172560961291

The advert says you'll never see another, for small things let us be thankful....

I quite like it. I'd own it. Granted it's not a real ducrappy. The only thing as far as I'm concerned they got goin for em us they look nice. I couldn't put up with that rattly John deere engine and all the other pains ducatti have.

Another one of those 'Marmite' bikes

I hate marmite, Ugh Dead

Now I have always fancied a Sucati since I saw one in MCN years back,think it was a Tlr engined 748r and that ticked all the boxes for me,looked like a Duc but with a powerful,reliable engine  and the added bonus of upsetting the duc fanbois  LOL

Now that I like, I got chatting to a lad last year that had a couple of TLR's and also a 748 with a TLR engine in it, he'd got it as a nearly finished project and just had to tweak it a bit, said it was funny on trackdays blasting past people that were not expecting it .
It's just things like that Tricati or whatever it is, I don't get it... if he hadn't plastered DUCATI all over it then it wouldn't have been too bad, but it just ends up being like one of those Ferrari body kits stuck over a TR7 or summat

I've not thought about that bike for years until today Confused

I tried researching through the MCN archives a few years back but failed to find any mention,someone was doing it as a project and hoped to sell anything needed as a kit I think,but I guess things just moved on and made the idea nonviable when better Duc models appeared.

The idea of plastering stickers over everything leaves me cold though,much better a totally unmarked vehicle with a stealth paint job and a totally sorted chassis is where it is for me.

It's the Ducati stickers everywhere and the red paint that spoil it greatly.

I appreciate the work etc, but personally I'd have either the Triumph or more likely the Ducati (v twin) and never the twain shall meet.

Incidentally, the worst/most ridiculous kit car combination I ever came across , lived near to me as a late teen.

It was a Lamborghini Countach, that was based on a VW Beetle. Complete with the "tweetle-tweetle" noise as it "raced" along with it's 0-60 time of 11 minutes and a hill, but a top speed of 55mph LOL Hilarious ha ha

I agree Rick, if it hadn't had Ducati 1098S plastered all over it then it wouldnt have been half bad, it does actually look a half decent job of how its all fitted together in the photos, but it's just the fact that it's pretending to be a Ducati I just don't get🤔...
As for the Lambo Beetle, wow....just wow.... but for some strange reason I really want one now you've described it

Yep as already said. Not really my thing but for £2900 that's not bad... But I'd have to get that Duke stickers off

The only admiration from me here is in the engineering, it looks well done. The "Why" question would just confuse me as I really dont see the point in all the effort to produce this end result. But it looks well executed.
