Pierobon F042 hstreet
Pierobon is an Italian frame-builder that has been supplying components for race bikes for over 50 years. It’s a familiar name around the MotoGP paddock and since the company is based in Bologna, it’s especially associated with Ducati. In 2006, Pierobon created the track-only F042 Supertwin racebike, a light and flickable machine designed to house aircooled Ducati motors. Two years later, the street version arrived, and Pierobon has just relaunched that bike as the ‘hstreet’, with the new livery you see here. The frame uses big aluminum tubes, the wheels are featherweight 17” items, and the complete bike weighs just 140kg. You can buy the frame and build your own bike, but to take it on the road in Europe you’ll need expensive legal approvals. So it’s better to let Pierobon sell you a complete bike for €19,900 (US$26,500). Expensive, yes, but this is a superlight naked built by one of the best names in race engineering, and it’ll handle like a gnat on crack. I don’t know about you, but I’d love to see a F042 pitched against a Ducati Hypermotard along a winding country road.
