A 200bhp trike? Hmmm...

Nicolas Petit, a 25-year-old professional motorcycle mechanic based in Creil, France, is also passionate about drawing motorcycles. We quite like some of his work, which you can see on his website here. We thought this Ducati Desmosedici RR-based trike concept was particularly cool. ‘This project is a mix between a motorcycle and a street quad. The base is without its Desmosedici fork, the rear is slightly restyled. The ATV-type front is grafted directly on to the engine chassis – simple and effective, Spartan and light,’ says Nicolas.

The idea of a 200bhp trike is rather appealing. We hope someone will like this idea enough to actually make a Desmo RR trike…!

very, very cool. if it has independently tilting wheels at the front, it should handle very well too. good work.

The odds of something like this produced by Ducati is about as likely as Tiger Woods kerbing his penchant for cocktail waitresses tattooed, but the idea has merit. Trike aesthetics are exciting, with a motorcycle seat and the highest of the frame and the end of the Desmosedici RR.
