Totti Motori ‘Recycle’

Totti Motori Recycle, Ducati Monster custom motorcycle parts
If you have a 1993-2005 model Ducati Monster, how do you make it look a little different to all the others? The Monster, despite its sales success, is a difficult bike to customize. The trellis frame dominates the bike’s appearance, so most custom Monsters are radical redesigns—such as the JvB Moto Flat Red. Bologna-based Roberto Totti, however, has come up with an alternative solution called ‘Recycle’. There are two flavors—café racer and scrambler—and the modified parts are interchangeable. It’s a modular approach centered on fibreglass tank covers, a new single-silencer exhaust system with three configurations (high, low and intermediate), and various seat/base setups according to the look you want. Spoked as opposed to the usual light alloy wheels are also available. It makes it relatively simple to create a different look for Ducati’s breakthrough machine, and one that extends beyond the usual Termignoni muffler upgrade. Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before?

    Beautiful design, nice and clean… I have always liked the Monster for its simple, straight forward look. Defiantly a modern day “cafe racer”. In the future this will be one of those plentifully available bikes that will be at the heart the restoration boom!… my two cents.

    I would buy a Monster now knowing I can do this to it. Keep seeing / hearing them in the morning traffic and thinking that’s a great way to get to work.

    Wow, they have tons of cool bikes on their site, and this Monster is no exception.

  • Greg

    I love it but I wish their site had more info about what exactly comes with the kit.

  • Simon

    I couldn’t agree more with Greg – I own a 2001 Monster and going beyond the usual billet clutch cover, bar end mirrors and pipe upgrade is looking to become a costly and time consuming business…

    More info on (or about) Mr Totti’s site would be great!

    Any photos available of the scrambler version?

  • Chris Pootay

    Horrible effort, molded ABS-plastic cover-ups (hideously-decaled at that) does not a custom make.

    Kozzy, I believe if you click here: http://www.tottimotori.com/dettaglio.php?lingua=it&sezione=annuncio&tipo=1&record=430#

    It shows both versions. You can click back and forth and see the difference in the fork length, handlebars and suspension height.

    Pootay, Dont all Ducatis use plastic tank covers now?? Wire wheels look great on this bike,and its nice to see a Duc thats not Red. Besides the front pipe acting as a skid plate, this would make a great scrambler!!
