This just released custom from Deus Ex Machina is the fulfillment of promise made between two strong Italian brands back in 2010. After getting a chance to have some long-awaited fun drifting the Ducati Scrambler at a Sydney horse-race track called Harold Park five years back, Deus’ Filippo Bassoli knew that a new Deus creation had to be made in the years that followed. And, today, Deus fulfills their end of the bargain with a bike that is equal parts vintage and real street-ready power. After dismantling the bike down to its frame, the Deus designers went to work, focusing on the appeal of the aluminum body by adding a single-piece tail, number plate support, and a new headlight inspired by the speedway bikes. An asymmetric mudguard completes the look while many small accents, including an altered conic filter, new disc brakes, and, of course, the dedicated exhaust. The easiest part of the whole project was naming the bike, which Deus named after the horse that one everything at the park, Hondo Grattan. From the looks of it, that winning spirit is alive and well. See more of the results from this exciting collaboration after the jump.
