The first incarnation of the Ducati Multistrada was an awkward machine. But this unusual customized version has transformed Ducati’s ugly duckling into a swan. It’s called “Biuta” and it was created by Carlo Roscio of Pavi, a town in Lombardy some 35 kilometers south of Milan.
With the help of his brother, Carlo has built a mongrel of a machine. The suspension is Honda-spec Öhlins all round—with forks from a VTR1000 SP-2, and shocks from an unspecified CBR. The headlight is from a Yamaha MT-03, and the tail is modeled on the Aprilia RSV unit, recreated using carbon fiber.
The side-mounted oil cooler is a racecar fitment; the sinuous exhaust is a hand-made one-off from Zard. A Beringer braking system keeps the forged aluminum Marchesini wheels in check.
