As the owner of Taipei-based Rough Crafts, Winston Yeh’s keen eye for design is almost instantly recognizable throughout the industry. And with a special request from a customer that’s close to 6’5” tall, Yeh needed something bigger than what he was used to building for this inquiry. So, he settled on a Ducati XDiavel S – their largest cruiser available – and raised the tail to achieve this.
Now dubbed “Flatout Titan,” that aptly-named ride now stands 34.6 inches off the ground. This was accomplished via a custom shock linkage, a custom-fabricated subframe, and some Marzocchi forks. Additionally, Yeh outfitted the new bike with a pair of carbon wheels now wrapped in Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tires, a pair of Beringer brake calipers up front, a hand-shaped aluminum tank and tail now with a sleek LED rear light from Doghouse Racing, Rizoma foot controls, handlebar risers, Motogadget grips and turn signals, and some timing belt covers, frame covers and a rear sprocket hub kit compliments of AEM Factory. All complete with over 150 horses at the helm. That’s one lucky customer.
