Drool Over This Carbon-Clad Custom Ducati Hypermotard 939 Flat Tracker By Rough Crafts

Given the number of parts made out of carbon fiber the bike, this could very well be dubbed the Hypermotard 939 Superleggera

The Ducati Hypermotard 939 is a purpose-built motorcycle that is quite rad as it is. Owing to this, not many custom shops use it for their projects.

But Taipei-based Rough Crafts are different and to prove this, the company has prepared an epic carbon fiber-laden custom bike based on a Hypermotard 939, which it calls the Igneous Ripper.

Plus, the bike is sprung on Kawasaki ZX-14R Ohlins USD forks and a shortened Ohlins monoshock to reduce ride height

The project started off when the owner of a Ducati Hypermotard came over to Rough Crafts and requested to reduce the seat height of the motorcycle so that the bike is more ridable and easier-to-live-with in stop-and-go traffic.

While the main idea was reducing seat height, Rough Crafts went on to give the bike a handful of other tweaks, resulting in this gorgeous machine.

The inspiration for this build came from flat track motorcycles and that’s why you can see a flat tracker-like tail section here, that’s built by Bott Power, who specializes in these kinds of parts.

With the tail in place, Rough Crafts then designed the fuel tank and tank shrouds themselves to match the rear. Not to mention, everything is brought together by a sinister all-black finish. The Hypermotard’s stock red trellis frame would’ve also looked quite sporty here, though.

To keep things road legal, though, the company equipped the bike with two projector lamps upfront mounted on a flat-tracker type carbon fiber flat plate

Even though the inspiration was flat track bikes, this motorcycle had to be street-legal too. So Rough Crafts took apart the stock headlight and replaced it with two projector lamps mounted on a flat carbon fiber panel, resembling the fascia of flat trackers.

The shop also threw in 10-spoke carbon fiber wheels wrapped in road-friendly Pirelli Rosso tires.

Taipei-based Rough Crafts has prepared this epic custom bike based on the Ducati Hypermotard 939, called the ’Igneous Ripper’

Oh, and before you ask how these guys tackled the height issue, let us tell you that the bike is sprung on Ohlins forks from the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R up front and a custom Ohlins monoshock at the rear, both put to lower the bike.

Finally, you also get a full-system SC Project exhaust and a see-through clutch cover

For the final touches, Rough Crafts equipped the bike with a full-system SC Project exhaust, aftermarket disc brakes, a see-through clutch case, and a leather saddle with diamond stitching.

The 937cc, twin-cylinder engine, though, remains largely unchanged but should pump out a little more oomph than the claimed 114 horsepower, thanks to the exhaust.

Sadly, no. As I mentioned above, this project was built for a customer who must be having a riot with this beast as we speak. Plus, even if it was on sale, importing this bike from Taipei would be a hard road to walk.
