ThunderDuc: A Ducati SportClassic racer

Ducati SportClassic
Way back in April, we showcased possibly the coolest Ducati SportClassic on earth: Chris Gorel’s ThunderDuc, a heavily modified and extremely rapid 2006 model SportClassic. Since then, ThunderDuc has been upgraded even further into the ultimate track weapon—but Gorel is now putting the bike up for sale.

The price is a very tempting $18,000, and the best news is that ThunderDuc 2.0 is fuel-mapped to run on pump gas. This bike has never been beaten on a track, or crashed, or scratched, or dropped. And as Gorel says, it’s “what a modern day cafe racer should look like as an actual race machine.” (Which is maybe why Rev’It! featured it in their 2008 catalog.)
