Ducati 749 by Apogee Motorworks

Ducati 749 build by Gustavo Penna of Apogee Motorworks, The bike started life as a stock Ducati 749, Gustavo used it as his canyon carver and weekend track bike for a number of years before he decided to take out the spanners and see what was hiding beneath the Pierre Terblanche designed fairings.He installed a more powerful 749R engine, complete with its racing cams, titanium valves, valve guides, connecting rods, magnesium head covers, a slipper clutch and carbon-fibre belt covers.

A hile the original sketch featured a fuel tank and seat that could be slid forwards or backwards to suit the rider, thus allowing for a perfect posture, it never did make it into production, which is why Gustavo re-engineered the rear sub-frame and fuel tank to enable full adjustability. The exhaust was designed with the help of a friend who works at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, with the duo employing computational fluid dynamics to perfect the design and then handcrafting it from titanium.
