This week we’ve got Ducatis old and new: a German-built custom 848, plus the latest factory race bike—the electric V21L. We also take a look at the 21 Helmets show from the US, and a BMW R nineT with vintage rally theming from Munich.
Ducati 848 redux by Motocrew We’re always fascinated to see bikes that are developed and tweaked over time. A year ago, German builder Chris Scholtka wowed us with his super-clean 848, clad in minimal silver bodywork.
He’s since revisited the 848 to give it a classic race bike look—and he’s managed to get it past the very fussy TÜV regulators, too. “The old school racer style was in my head since day one,” he explains, “but the costs and the regulations were horrible.”
