The Ducati Leggero
is a series of custom motorcycles designed by Walt Siegl. They
demonstrate what you can do with a Ducati 900SS if youâ€™ve got
the time and talent to turn them into something new.
Siegl, who builds
his bikes in a New Hampshire workshop, also races his bikes
whenever he has the chance. This gives him the firsthand
knowledge he needs to build his performance motorcycles.
He first started
working on the Leggero series several years ago. Although
theyâ€™re based on the Ducati 900SS, a large portion of each bike
has been replaced with custom-built parts. Many of which are a
steel alloy with chromium and molybdenum that adds strength
while shaving weight.
Since this bike
was destined for the track it was given a longer aluminum swing
arm and a Showa monoshock with Showa forks up front and Brembo
brakes front and rear. All bodywork was made in house from
Kevlar composite and a Motogadget tachometer/speedometer
replaced the original.
