Ducati 1098R by Mr. Martini’s Flash Back America

The bike you’re probably checking out now is Mr. Martini’s Flash Back America custom made street bike, based on a Ducati streetfighter. The model is quite unconventional, to be honest, and brings forth new principles in the field of motorbike upgrades.

Based in Italy, in Verona, the brand has relentlessly slashed and hewn the body of the Ducati 1098R in order to turn it into such a masterpiece. They were probably aware of the fact that the Flash Back America would never ever look like a Ducati superbike again – this has sadly raised both glamour and controversy.

The guys have reportedly discarded the front cowl of the bike but added a massive retro headlight. The sidecovers that remained were trimmed to an extremely unconventional shape, yet again, revealing a shortened subframe and miniature cowl hiding the tail light. The carbon rims mounted on the Ducati have gorgeously been assorted with an overall satin grey paintjob.

In addition, the project has also received some pretty wonderful custom exhaust lines – massive in diameter and ending with a small Zard exhaust. The look even more chunkier than they used to, while being a lot louder.
