Apogee Motoworks' Gustavo Pena has readied the "Le Caffage" Ducati 848. Pena's aimed to design a bike that looks both futuristic and has a neo-classic feel. The superbike is dominated by an oversized gas tank with vintage café proportions and handcrafted stainless steel twin exhaust pipes resting at the rear end mirroring the upper bodywork. At the front is a lidded headlight, designed with an LED light unit, inspired by the cheekbones of Pena's Russian girlfriend.
The 848 engine has also seen heavy upgrades with NCR parts that include a titanium valve, a slipper clutch, and a full set of titanium bolts and fasteners. Most parts of the "Le Caffage" have been powder-coated and treated to a ceramic coating on top, including the entire trellis frame, the swingram, and the forged Marchesini racing wheels shrouded with custom carbon huggers.
