Fashionable Ducati Café Racer from Jerem Bikes…
In 2003, Ducati gave their sport touring collection a kick within the pants with the introduction of the ST3, which boasted a brand new and distinctive three-valve L-twin engine. A single cam operated three desmodronic valves per cylinder. The thought was to strike a steadiness between the strengths of two-valve and four-valve heads:
“As the idea goes a two valve head creates higher torque low-down than a 4 valve however on the sacrifice of mid-range and high finish energy. The 4 valve can get trip of the burnt gases quicker at excessive revs as a result of there are two holes as an alternative of 1 to get them out of the pinnacle and into the exhaust…” –Visordown
The ST3 changed each the lackluster two-valve ST2 and the four-valve ST4, whose engine was based mostly on that of the 916 superbike — a potent machine, however a bit finicky and high-strung for a lot of sport touring riders. By most accounts, the ST3 struck a extra excellent steadiness between the 2:
“Powered by a singular three-valve head engine with two consumption and a single exhaust valve, the ST3 delivered a really respectable 107bhp with 72ft.lb of torque, however extra importantly this new design of head gave the low-end grunt of the two-valve ST2 mixed with the sporty high finish of the four-valve ST4.”
Enter our good friend Jérémie Duchampt of France’s Jerem Bikes, who’s been turning out fairly the secure of high-level builds over the previous couple of years, together with a number of previous trendy Ducati cafe racers just like the one you see right here. For this construct, he began with an ST3s, the high-end model of the ST3 that boasted absolutely adjustable Öhlins suspension, lighter weight wheels, a distinct aluminum swingarm, and different such upgrades.
As with all of Jérémie’s builds, practically each final half was changed, refurbished, personalized, or fabricated. The body was detabbed and painted a Peugeot gold, and a customized rear tail loop fabricated for a cleaner, sleeker tail.
Up entrance, the unique Öhlins forks had been rebuilt and re-anodized gold, and the bike is now rolling on some very trick Kineo wheels sourced from EVO-X Racing, wrapped in sticky Pirelli Rosso3 rubber.
Out again, the ST3 double-sided swingarm has been changed with the single-sided unit from a Monster S2R, full with an Öhlins rear shock.
The tail unit was tailored for the construct to suit the brand new subframe, that includes built-in LED lighting and a customized saddle (and ahead tank cowl) from Yaya Brush Saddlery.
Shifting contained in the body, the engine was left largely inventory, although it was refurbished, repainted, and outfitted with a 749 radiator modified to maintain the high-performance hoses contained in the trellis body. A customized stomach pan / engine guard remembers the consumption of a jet fighter, painted satin grey metallic like the opposite bodywork.
The bike is sporting an LED Jeep headlight, and the remainder of the lighting is minimalist LED. Within the cockpit, an Avia Compositi GP-style sprint retains the pilot knowledgeable of engine revs and velocity.
All in all, this ageing sport-tourer has been reworked into a shocking trendy cafe racer that will look proper at residence streaking down the runway beside an F-22 Raptor.
