MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE. A Fully Transformed Ducati Tracker From Benjie’s
We can read your mind. You’re trying to guess which donor Ducati Benjie’s Cafe Racers used to build this, their latest custom bike home run. A Monster perhaps? What about a ST4S? Or maybe a Scrambler? They’re pretty good guesses, but you’d be wrong on all counts. See, this here slick-looking street tracker with serious canyon-carving abilities left the Bologna factory as a 2013 Hyperstrada. That’s right, a luggage-ladened touring motard styled from a dirt bike became this.
“Redesigning motorcycles is what the BCR team really looks forward to,” says shop owner Benjie Flipprboi. “The planning process, the creativity involved; it’s these things that let us open the doors of the BCR shop every day with enthusiasm for what we do”.
The team had recently been commissioned to customise a 2013 Ducati Hyperstrada into something that was more aggressive and lighter, but with a similar riding position. Or as the BCR customer briefed the shop, “A bike that will be ridden regularly in canyon-style road courses and on track days”.
