This Badass Custom Ducati Diavel Puts The Pedal To the Metal
Say hello your next two-wheeled obsession.
Most commonly, customizers improve project motorcycles by hacking through the extraneous and removing the unneeded to reveal the elemental essence of two-wheeled cool hidden beneath. This isn’t one of those times.
Instead, Portland, Oregon’s Moto Corsa commissioned master sheetmetal bender Jeff Johnson, of Ill Eagle Designs to produce retro-futuristic art deco bodywork for this Ducati Diavel. Up front, he dressed up the Italian power cruiser with headlight cowl housing an LED array for forward lighting.
The Diavel wears a carbon fiber-wrapped Termignoni exhaust to extend the bike’s custom appearance. The bike debuted at the Portland One Motorcycle show.
Staged next to a stock Diavel, the Moto Corsa’s custom’s hand-formed aluminum bodywork stands out. It shows that stripped-down bobbers, trackers and cafe racers aren’t the only design trends you might spot at a custom bike show.
