A Limited Edition Bike Inspired By Two Italian Icons

View all 14 Photos

When a custom motorcycle workshop that has become well-known for its high quality and stylish designs creates a collection that pays homage to not one, but two Italian icons, the results can be nothing short of gorgeous. Inspired by the Ferrari 250 series of the 50s and 60s and the Ducati Monster, Etik Motorcycles has launched a beautiful range of ultra-limited bikes. Located in Rouen, an hour and a half drive away from Paris, the workshop has put its mark on the world of custom builds in a short time thanks to an impressive attention to detail and a passion for vintage designs. The Desmo Classico collection takes things to another level, as it pays homage to Ferrari, Italian racing history, and Ducati. Using the Ducati Monster 1100 as a base, Etik Motorcycles has created 20 models that feature the elegant lines of the iconic vintage cars and bear the names of 20 personalities linked to Ferrari’s heritage. This bike, number 18, is named after Italian racing driver Giuseppe Farina, the first official World Champion and cousin of legendary car designer Sergio Pininfarina, whose name has been given to bike number 1. Number 18 features full LED lighting, a brown leather seat made in Italy, Pirelli Phantom tires, aluminum mirrors and handlebars, a heat treated chassis, a polished stainless steel exhaust silencer, and a striking color contrasts of blue, brown, and black tones. It has a price of 14,500 Euros, which converts to just under 16,300 dollars; you can place an order, read more about the technical specs, or take a look at the other models on the official website.
