Ducati SportClassic SPORT 1000 S – West 16th Street, NYC

May 14th, 2009 by Ian

ducati-sport-1000-sFor the retro-inspired SportClassic series, Ducati dug into the archives to create a line of bikes reminiscent of their iconic 1970’s cafe-racer models. ┬áThe end result is a harmonious mix of old and new. ┬áBut don’t be fooled by all the vintage sheet metal – this bike is no Sunday cruiser and boasts 92 horsepower in a package that weighs just under 400 pounds. This stylish gent opted to remove the front fairing, adding his own sprezzatura!

2006 Kawasaki Ninja – West 24th Street, NYC

May 11th, 2009 by Ian

kawasaki-ninjaDon’t feel bad. We had no clue what this bike was either. The exposed mid section speaks more Monster or Breva than it does a Japanese crotch rocket. The proud owner, who doubled as Morpheus in the Matrix, not only removed the stock fairings but applied a generous coating of PVC for that menacing matte black look that is so en vogue. The whole thing is a very stealth affair.

Chromed Ducati Monster – Prince Street, NYC

It is difficult to miss the throaty growl emanating from the Monster’s exhaust. Couple that in with the fact that this particular example is chromed and you have a motorcycle that is hard to miss. The driver was rocking hi top Chucks and a Momo Fighter Helmet, exactly what you would expect to see while cruising Prince Street.
