70s-inspired Ducati 800 Avenue Tracker by XTR Pepo…
Launched in 2015, the Ducati Scrambler was a little bit of a misnomer, because it had a couple of of the trimmings of a correct scrambler past the title. Nevertheless, the 803cc machine shortly proved itself as an ideal all-rounder.
“Its qualities shine by means of with out the intelligent advertising. It’s straightforward to journey, small and lightweight, has a stunning useable air-cooled V-twin with a number of low to mid-range energy. There’s some beautiful consideration to element on all of the fashions. Skilled fingers might want just a little extra energy and noise, however everybody else will find it irresistible.” –MCN
The air-cooled L-twin was based mostly on the Monster 796 mill, tweaked to place out a strong 75 bhp, and builders quickly discovered the Scrambler excelled as a donor for all kinds of customized builds. By way of trendy bikes, solely the BMW R nineT can rival the Ducati Scrambler for reputation of customization.
Among the best within the enterprise is “grasp constructor” Jose “Pepo” Rosell, who lower his enamel because the founding father of the world-renowned workshop Radical Ducati earlier than taking a sabbatical and reemerging with a brand new, extra expansive model: XTR Pepo.
XTR Pepo shortly outshone his previous workshop with builds on an enormous number of totally different platforms. We’ve featured XTR builds on almost each totally different producer underneath the solar: BMW, Bultaco, Harley, Honda, Royal Enfield, Triumph, Yamaha…even a Mobylette! Nevertheless, Pepo nonetheless returns typically to his old flame, the 90-degree L-twins of Ducati.
Again in 2016, one among our first-ever options from Pepo was his Ducati Scrambler “Regolarita” — a tribute to the unique Ducati Scramblers of the Nineteen Sixties. In distinction, his new customized Scrambler “Makoki” takes inspiration from classic flat monitor bikes, with 70s-style bubble lettering, metal-flake paint, a tracker tail part and handlebars, aspect quantity plates, and different such particulars.
As with all XTR Pepo builds, there’s a heavy classic racing affect. Our favourite half needs to be the Castrol inexperienced swingarm, which actually units the bike other than something you’re prone to see with two wheels and a Ducati engine.
The nickname is a tribute to the Spanish comedian antihero Makoki, a psychological asylum escapee who grew to become a counterculture icon within the Nineteen Seventies — an delinquent roughneck normally depicted in his trademark straitjacket, headdress of torn electroshock wires, and wielding a damaged wine bottle.
We are able to’t consider a greater title for this 70s-inspired Bologna bull!
