Ducati is as famous for its style as it is for its engineering, but the Ducati VR46 (Valentino Rossi special edition) concept designed by young British automotive designer Steven Galpin adds to the Italian brand’s looks in an elegant way. We’re seriously impressed!
The bike is designed as close to the GP version as possible but intended for road use. It’s full of beautiful lines and incredible design detail; the swing arm includes the exhaust in it and also houses the sprocket and chain.
Galpin is a big Rossi fan (surprise, surprise) and figured that Ducati could have this bike in production for 2018 if the marque wanted to get behind it. This might also be about the time when the Italian superstar MotoGP racer hangs up his racing leathers for good – what a farewell present this bike would be!
