Walt Siegl’s BESPOKE Ducati SUPERBIKES. And YOU can own one.


Over the last few years, Walt Siegl has made a name for himself creating an eclectic mix of stylish, sophisticated and well kitted out motorcycles – and he’s just unveiled his latest project, a pair of Ducati SBK machines for the track (and road).

At this stage he’s built a couple of models, and both make use of Ducati’s 1098 superbike engine – but interestingly, he’s offering them in two different engine configurations. There’s either a liquid cooled four-valve unit, or an air cooled two-valve unit. Of course, as with all WSM’s project’s, it’s the styling that really stands out. It’s a gorgeous looking thing – but there’s a lot going underneath its swanky new fairing too. Here’s the full technical specifications for each model.
