JvB-MOTO Ducati Flat Red

JvB-MOTO Ducati Flat Red
Six months ago, we were awestruck by Jens vom Brauck’s minimalistic Ducati Scrambler custom. But the other day, a comment on twitter reminded us of an earlier JvB-MOTO Ducati bike, the Flat Red. This motorcycle won the international Ducati Design Contest in 2004, and five years later, it still looks fresh. The bike was first developed as a 1:12 scale model, and later built on base of a 2002 900SSie. As Jens says, “It’s not the most practical bike, and neither is it made for the racetrack—but it doesn’t want to be. It wants to be good fun, it will deliver lots of character, and it is going to be cooler and quicker than every ‘cruiser’ ever built”. Quite. [Thanks Andrew Jones.]
