2016 Ducati ‘Pandora’ By Young Guns Speed Shop

When Ducati approaches your custom motorcycle shop for a personalized project, you accept — no questions asked. Such was the case for Switzerland-based Young Guns Speed Shop, the builder contracted by the Italian motorcycle manufacturer to build a bike based on their latest racer.

After referencing a number of cafe and Gran Prix builds to nail down an image for the bike, the 2016 Ducati “Pandora” was born. Young Guns set out to create a hybrid of the two popular styles, combining prominent details from classic ‘70s sports bikes with a modernized design principle that would eventually emit a staggering 152-horsepower, thanks to its 1,198 Twin Testastretta motor. Utilizing a 2016 Ducati Monster 1200 R as the foundation for the Pandora, a newly adapted rear frame was coupled with a fiberglass monocoque seat and tank to create a uniform look, while the electronics (and battery systems) were relocated to remain hidden underneath the newly furnished areas of the bike. A handcrafted megaphone exhaust, clip-on handlebars, and a custom-made cooler round out the radical racer, resulting in one of the finest Ducati builds that we’ve ever covered.
