Naked 848 Monster

My latest project converting a 2008 Ducati 848 Superbike into a Monster.

It started off pearl white with a few aftermarket parts. I took it down to an engine and frame, everything else was removed, everything.

I made a custom frame for an old Yamaha SR400 café racer seat. I designed the frame to match the characteristic Ducati trellis X-frame. Cut into the custom seat frame is the break light with integrated turn signals.

The headlight I used is from an older Ducati Monster. The exhaust is a custom modified QD ExBox from a Monster. Off-road tires are for the roads and trails in Panama.

The fuel tank was replaced with an aluminum tank and painted a Satin Ducati Red and finished off with vintage DUCATI decals.

The clutch cover was replaced with one that is transparent so you can see the clutch spinning, I like to see all the moving parts.

Many more modifications where made, and many parts removed. Total weight reduction was 51 pounds, along with a lower center of gravity.
