A picture you don't see everyday

I thought I would post this. On a trip to Borgo Panigale in '03 we "snuck" into the design studio of Pierre Terblanche. This is the MTS as seen in the studio along with the MH mockup.

There's also a pic of us at dinner (gotta have validation right?) discussing life and Ducati. Pierre is in the middle, the guy on the right (Andrea) is the hook up for loaner bikes at the factory.

Cool photos! Now that the 1098 is out, did you ask him "Now who's laughing" (re: the 999)?

BTW, did you get your design cues from Graymia over at multistrada.net?

No, I free formed the bike, no real "design" in mind. I was given the red wheels off of another MTS to try the look. The stripe on the body and wheels seemed kinda fun. Pain to get the body stripe looking halfway reasonable on that body work though.

Great pics .... lunch with PT .... he is a very nice man and his designs aren't bad either (only a little bit of understatement here, but I don't want to start the wars / bashing again) Do you have more pictures of the Hailwood? Is it the mock-up, or the proto-type (or are these the same?)?
