Ducati Multistrada Biuta Custom Motorcycle | By Carlo Roscio

By - July 10th, 2012

There is some truth in the saying ” Slow and Steady Wins the Race” when it comes to this particular Ducati custom. Built by Carlo Roscio of Pavia, Italy, and his brother, over the course of two years, the Ducati Multistrada “Biuta” is a tuned version of the 2003 Ducati Multistrada 1000DS, though hardly recognizable since the only things from the original bike are the frame, gas tank, and the two-cylinder 1000DS engine. No mere DIY project, the brothers first disassembled, then rebuilt every aspects of the bike. Not satisfied with third party add-ons, they fabricated the subframe, fashioned carbon-fiber parts themselves, and salvaged LED turn signals from a Volkswagen Touran, in addition to Buell aftermarket parts, Ohlins shocks from Honda CBR, Aprilia RSV handle-bars, and Yamaha MT-03 headlight. Distinctively unique down to the Baby Blue color scheme, the Ducati Multistrada Biuta Custom Motorcycle really exemplified the definition of what a “chopper” is despite its Italian origin. via: il Ducatista
