Ducati’s late-model L-Twin engines are immense feats of Italian mechanical engineering, with the liter-sized, two-cylinder engines winding up to 11,550rpm and putting down more than 200hp and over 100ft-lbs of torque. So when Polish shop, ATV Swap Garage was recently looking for an engine to power its next project, a heavily-customized Yamaha Raptor, it turned to the mighty L-Twin from Ducati’s 1299 Panigale superbike.
The Tuning Fork Company donor was completely torn down, before having its chassis powder-coated and then fitted with bespoke engine mounts, a custom bumper, crash bars and cargo nets, aftermarket wheels shod in custom off-road tires, and top-shelf FOX Float X suspension. The Ducati engine also features a full custom exhaust ending in a Termignoni superbike muffler, Ducabike clutch cover, and an oversized aluminum race radiator. This spare-no-expense project also borrows the Ducati’s Brembo brake system and TFT display. Decked out in sharp, custom bodywork, the build boasts a full Ducati Corse-inspired graphics package and a custom leather seat with bespoke Ducati and ASG-stitched branding. Plated and fully street-legal, this 205hp+ ATV also has ProTaper bars, bar-end mirrors, adjustable levers, numerous carbon fiber bits, and LED lighting.
