When it comes to sporty superbikes, Ducati typically takes the cake in terms of accessibility and quality. Take the 848 Evo for instance. It’s obviously a road-ready beast with upwards of 140 horsepower behind the throttle and does its due diligence looking the part as well. So when Austrian-based National Custom Tech Motorcycles (NCT) released this sport-infused cafe racer, we knew it was love at first sight.
Built strictly for their own enjoyment, this Ducati Evo acts as a true testament to what NCT is capable of in the world of custom bikes. Initially, they stripped the bike down to the bare essentials and got started with a new subframe. It now features a hand-made aluminum tail with leather upholstery and a LED taillight, carbon fiber fenders and side covers, newly-installed Ohlins suspension at the front and rear, a new exhaust system featuring an Akrapovic silencer, and wheels now held within Diablo Supercorsa SC2 tires. Finish her off with an olive green paint job and black powder coating on the trellis frame and wheels and you have a race-ready cafe racer suited for the street.
