Thumbs up Moto Puro Elite II Cafe Racer

Elite II Café Racer by Moto Puro
BY JENSEN BEELER
http://www.asphaltandrubber.com/bike...-ii-moto-puro/



The Ducati 1199 Panigale is perhaps the pinnacle of technology for sport bikes from Bologna, Italy. With 195 horses of fury, and a positively anorexic dry weight of 367 lbs, the spec-sheet racing for the Panigale is intriguing, if getting around a race track the absolutely fastest way possible is your primary goal.



But what if you enjoy the finer things in your Ducati life as well? In that case, the brains at Moto Puro might have just the thing for your Desmo addiction: the Ducati Elite II.
To build the Elite II, the Dutch builders of Moto Puro took a Ducati 1199 Panigale S, and stripped the machine down to its Superquadro engine and electrical components. From there, those crazy Dutchmen built a café racer style motorcycle, complete with tubeless wire-laced wheels on single-sided swingarm.



The Elite II still uses the monocoque front frame for the airbox and headstock, but Moto Puro has built its own trellis subframe for the rear seat. A hand-built aluminum fuel tank, a handlebar instead of clip-ons, and a custom exhaust from QD complete the café look.



The design is a bit different from the Krax-Moto rendering of the Pierobon-framed Panigale café racer. We like it just the same though, and it goes to show that you don’t need to wear tight-fitting jeans to get into this moto-aesthetic. Thanks for the tip Joost!
