When the question comes around "how should I upgrade my stock bike?", everyone says things like "suspension", "wheels", "brakes"... don't they? They don't say "fit custom fuel tank", "chop rear of frame", "fit non-stock faring".

It's a pretty bike, but the running gear appears to be mostly stock, but made pretty. That's ok, it's just not me.

that is the difference between custom and bolt on, first requires inspiration
and talent, second requires inspiration and money.
this bike is a perfect example, and it is pretty wild too, i love it.

no thats not right, anything is modifying your bike when it is not stock......a full anodized engine bolt kit for example is a MODIFICATION.

look at my bike, motors stock but i have a turbo bolted on and i have custom gauges and a 916 rear seat, even if the turbo wasnt fitted my bike is still modifyied.

you cant go bigger on the brakes on these things anyway haha 320mm is HUGE!! these run the exact same brakes as the superbikes, my front rotors were off a 998.

Well, like I said. This is not the common type of modification people usually do on these bikes. Of course the bike is modified. I never said it wasn't. Most people buy lighter wheels or a better suspension instead of what this person did. I'm not arguing with any of you about that. All I'm saying is that for me, it's not what I would do if I had the money. I'm not into stuff that just looks cool and doesn't perform, for the most part. To each his own.

.
Please stop putting words into my mouth that I did not say. I never said this bike was not modified. I said it was not the common type of modification and that it would not be something that I would choose. It looks good, but probably does not perform any better than stock.

Excuse me? That is bullshit.

If you like the bike, then fine. It's a matter of personal taste. I'm not into something that looks fast but really is not.

Oh please...
Most Ducati owners buy new stuff for their bikes to make them cooler or more desirable to them, not making them faster.
If you wanted the fasted bike and didn't care about a "cool" bike, sell your SS and get a jap 1k cc bike, it'll be faster.

Making a custom look for your bike is at least as cool as just bolting on some carbon stuff and pretending you're some street racer.

Main bike:
1198 chassis, Forged wheels, 1098R superstock engine, Kyle racing linear link, Ohlins ttx shock, Showa fork with 30 mm ohlins cartridge, race technology datalogger and much more.

Other bikes: Moto Morini Corsaro Veloce, Ducati 999 (Race),
Benelli 1130 TNT CR, Benelli 1130 TNT, ST4S, Ducati 900 SS,
Ducati 996 (Track), BMW 1100 RS (x2)
