This eye-catching concept bike called the Ducati 599 Mono is the latest creation of Dan Anderson, the same man behind the Voltra electric concept that blinked an eye to the motorcycle press last year.
While its creator doesn’t have bad references at all, we can’t say we’re too ashamed of the way this thing looks…perfect, that is. You can spend hours trying to find something wrong with the aggressive design, which remains faithful to the original Ducati style, but once you start getting into details, something just doesn’t fit. More precisely, the 352lbs (dry) Ducati 599 Mono concept is powered by one half of a Ducati Evoluzione 1198 engine, meaning a 599cc single-cylinder thumper.
So why would anyone want to do that? My guess is that the designer thought at sacrificing horsepower over torque so that his concept would attract attention for eventually being capable to offer supermoto-like engine performance despite the Italian supersport lines. How does this combination sound to you?
