DUCK DUCK GAS. Plan B’s ‘Ugly Duck’ Ducati Multistrada Sprint Racer

Plan B's Christian Moretti calls it ugly. We think he need to get his eyes checked. Here's his winningest sprint racer yet...

As the author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams knows a thing or two about deadlines and the pressure they bring. “I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.” But while Adams may have missed a few, the only whooshing coming from Plan B’s sprint racer is the exhaust note crossing the line after another 8th mile win. With just ten days to go before the first event of the year this bike was a stock Ducati Multistrada DS with panniers. Come race day, Christian Moretti had worked his magic creating a nitrous slurping monster known as the Ugly Duck.

Long time fans of Pipeburn and the Sultans of Sprint racing series will know Christian well from his incredible Plan B racer called Cherry Salt. The Buell powered creation was gorgeous to look at but for Christian it was simply too slow. So despite the weight and expense of powering up a Buell engine he took on the challenge of doing it again. This time the new dedicated racer would use an inverted Ducati frame and a turbocharged Buell engine. Sounds complex? It is and with less than two weeks to the first Sultans of Sprint race the bike was nowhere near finished.
