Ducati 750SS ‘Predator’ By NCT Motorcycles

When it comes to city-dwelling bikes, a lot of customizers lean toward building understated, inconspicuous motorcycles. And there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, it can be quite brilliant when done properly. Sometimes, however, (and especially when it comes to performance-focused bikes) we like a bit of flair to go along with the power. That’s just one of the many reasons to love NCT Motorcycles’ ‘Predator’ Ducati 750SS.

Done up in a bold black and yellow color scheme that could make Pittsburgh’s sports teams blush, this beastly bumblebee has been transformed into a beautiful cafe racer. But that transformation wasn’t completed by happenstance; it took a lot of work — including chopping down the frame, giving it a new powder coat finish, swapping out the swing arm for one from a vintage Ducati 748, putting on new USD forks, and replacing the brake system with new drilled disc brakes for extra stopping power. All told, we think NCT managed to capture the spirit of the original bike while still making it a new and interesting build that stands out against the crowd.
