For our February Window Bike, we are very lucky to have one of Walt Siegl's latest creations, the Ducati Leggero. This bike is simply referred to as the 'Toronto 2014', representing the city in which it lives and the year in which it was born.
It belongs to our friend Dan who waited well over a year for the bike to built, but it was certainly worth the wait. The custom frame is built with 4130 chrome moly steel tubing and weighs just 15 lbs. The front and rear suspension are fully adjustable Showa units. The front fork is tuned with the riders weight in mind and has gold valving.

For the exhaust system, stock Supersport headers were ceramic coated and fitted to carbon fiber mufflers. While the brakes, are Brembo gold lined calipers and rotors, front and rear.

The engine is a fully rebuilt and blueprinted two-valve 800cc SS engine, with a lightened flywheel and K&N pod filters.

The half-fairing, tank, and rear fairing are entirely custom and are made of kevlar and carbon fiber. While the hand controls are aftermarket units by Magura.

It is a bike that is without a doubt, more than the sum of its parts. It is simply a piece of motorcycle art and certainly needs to be seen in person in order to be properly appreciated. It will be in our window all of February, so come by and check this beauty out!
