Ducati Flat Red

Winner of the international Ducati Design Contest `04

In my work for the Ducati design contest”Design your Dream Ducati”, I wanted to find a compromise between the style of a classic, clean chopper and the performance of a superlight, fast and powerfull sports bike. Inspired by old-school hot rods , I wanted to build a real rock`n roll bike.

The bike was first developed as a 1:12 scale model and later built on base of a Ducati 900SSie from 2002.

1: 12 Scale model:

“Timeless hot rod styling, absolutely minimalistic design, low riding position and visible clean technics bring motorcycle fascination even to people who are not into bikes.
Of course it´s not the most practical bike, neither is it made for the racetrack, but it doesn´t want to be.
It wants to be good fun, it will deliver lots of character and it is going to be cooler and quicker than every „cruiser“ ever built.”

( Description for the Design Contest. In 2004 there were not many bikes like this, many people didn´t understand this concept….)
