For 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. The end result is a harmonious mix of old and new. But 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!

Don’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.
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.
