As Ducati looks forward to their next 90 years dominating the performance motorcycle segment, they look back for inspiration for this latest Ducati draXter drag racing concept bike. Designed by the Ducati Design Center's Advanced Design team, the Ducati draXter takes the beloved XDiavel cruiser back to the Italian brand's racing roots, taming a 1262cc engine within a modified version of the road bike's frame. Given its new role in life, Ducati also swapped in a new suspension, brake system, and lower handlebars and footpegs. Extra padding and a refined tank also add to a more drag-focused riding stance. The design was then finished with touches of yellow accents across its black and matte body, including a large #90 to mark their 90th anniversary. Currently only a one-off concept, let us know if you'd love to see this hit production.
