Ducati custom: Hypermotard Diavolo Nero Special Black - July 29, 2011, 12:13 AM


It takes some dreaming, time and a little extra cash to create your very own custom bike, but thatís exactly what Marte977 has done with his creation: the Hypermotard Diavolo Nero Special Black Evo 977. The Ducati Hypermotard-based special was used for its characteristic design and the way it adapts itself to customisation. Marte977 says:

Everything started from the idea of personalising my own bike and making it unique. I already had the extreme and characteristic bike itself, with its aggressive and edgy lines, and I wanted to highlight its shape - making it more extreme. But I also wanted to stay true to the original Ducati concept of a unique, slim and elegant bike, but with a nasty side.

With this in mind, the first step to creating the Black Hy (my black Hypermotard) was to change the rear - making it lighter and much shorter. Using ideas from other bikes, I put a brutale tail on my hyper, and I created LED lights under the other rear-end lights. With these changes to the rear, I then needed a different exhaust, one which was low and compact and which didnít exist for the Hypermotard.

And so I built one, made-to-measure by using a twin IXIL exhaust and Ducati Performance components. I placed it behind the right pedal and I think this step gave me the look I was hoping for. Now I had to put the licence plate on and to keep the rear free and high, I got a plate holder specially made and mounted it on the swingarm using carbonfibre fixtures and LED lights.
The final big job was to change the front so I got rid of the beak which created an imbalanced look and I lowered the headlight so that it was in line with the sides. I also created a front that would frame the headlight, but kept the hypermotard look. The side air intakes also house LED indicators and a rearview mirror has been placed near the handlebars. Simple and linear graphics complete my Diavolo Nero, some of which are in carbon, to stay faithful to some of the Hypermotard original idea but having an extreme bike.
