STRATOSPHERIC. A Rally-Inspired Ducati Monster From Vida Bandida.
Yesterday we had an 80s endurance cafe racer and today it's rally cars that are setting the scene. But not just any rally car; it's arguably the rally car. The Lancia Stratos HF with its Ferrari V6. Argentina's Vida Bandida are, like many of their country folk, huge rally fans. And to pay tribute to the Lancia and rally's Group B golden age of the 70s and 80s, they've built an perfectly Italian tribute in the form of this dirt-eating Ducati Monster.
“I am one of the owners of Vida Bandida motorcycles,” says Argentinian wrenchman Tocho. “Together with my partner Salvador, we have dedicated ourselves to the customising of motorcycles in Córdoba. For three years we've worked in the same garage, doing almost all the work. We also have a clothing and accessories line, which we are expanding. We make all kinds of motorcycles and this year we had several interesting projects, including an R nineT... and now this one.”
