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. Nonetheless, the 803cc machine rapidly proved itself as an awesome all-rounder.
“Its qualities shine by way of with out the intelligent advertising and marketing. It’s simple to experience, small and light-weight, has a beautiful useable air-cooled V-twin with a lot of low to mid-range energy. There’s some beautiful consideration to element on all of the fashions. Skilled arms might want a bit of 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 stable 75 bhp, and builders quickly discovered the Scrambler excelled as a donor for all kinds of customized builds. When it comes to trendy bikes, solely the BMW R nineT can rival the Ducati Scrambler for recognition of customization.
Among the best within the enterprise is “grasp constructor” Jose “Pepo” Rosell, who lower his tooth 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XTR Pepo rapidly outshone his outdated workshop with builds on an unlimited number of completely different platforms. We’ve featured XTR builds on almost each completely different producer beneath the solar: BMW, Bultaco, Harley, Honda, Royal Enfield, Triumph, Yamaha…even a Mobylette! Nonetheless, Pepo nonetheless returns usually to his past love, the 90-degree L-twins of Ducati.
Again in 2016, certainly one of our first-ever options from Pepo was his Ducati Scrambler “Regolarita” — a tribute to the unique Ducati Scramblers of the 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 aside from something you’re more likely 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 turned a counterculture icon within the Seventies — an delinquent roughneck normally depicted in his trademark straitjacket, headdress of torn electroshock wires, and wielding a damaged wine bottle.
“Makoki actually means an entire class of hooligan (that was present within the 70/80’s in Spain). Actually Makoki is a reminder of my youth in Madrid. It’s my day by day bike for using by way of Madrid.” -Pepo
We will’t consider a greater title for this 70s-inspired Bologna bull!
