Ducati Monster 1260 of DSB conversion Berlin

Ducati Monster


A Ducati naked bike with Ducati Superbike Twin – what crazy combination. PS was allowed with this 173-hp creature to racetrack: a real treat shocker.

The parallel is striking – it’s creepy. As the startled deep, when this monster Berlin in a blind rage in second gear when accelerating out of the bend straightens Equip. Just like the troubled giant with its distinctive neck screw and the deep scar across the forehead wrinkled, as he slipped from the situation.

The ominous Dr. Frankenstein wanted to play with his monster God. Marc Meier ride from Berlin DSB acted on behalf of a customer, however. However, this has created. Gigantic monster with similar force, which would have without certain level of genius and madness of its designer probably never get the breath of life.

But before ausbüchsen the monster to play can – and not with the blind girl by the stream, but with PS at Oschersleben – we look more closely at the creature. The heart alone impressed by its components and technical solutions. Motor housing, the piston and cylinder are from the Ducati 1098 R.

The rod donated the standard version of the superbikes, the transmission comes from a Hypermotard 1100th The gigantic tinkering with the DSB team for the much larger stroke, for among other things increased the cylinder through thicker Bottom gaskets, piston skirts and the crank arms shortened and a new clamping mechanism will be made for new timing belt had, you can imagine. On the whole is crowned by a conglomerate of Multistrada 1200-1098-injectors and throttle body. For something was fitted as standard under the Monster Tank no place.

So his baby’s fossil life gets breathed, Marc had the nozzles therefore directly put into the intake, make the pressure regulator and the fuel intake lines themselves. After that was just enough space for the air filter from the motocross range, which are slipped directly over the oval velocity stacks. After adjusting the air box was the tank on it without changing a strut in the narrow space frame must.

That the original Monster S4R-Mild steel tube is still present at all borders, also in magic, because the naked bike is the pivot pin through the motor housing. When Superbike donor engine, however.

To the boys from Berlin pulled out the cutter, the drilled hole and matching einpressten a steel sleeve for the recumbent. In contrast, the specially made with Termignoni exhaust dampers or the Ohlins suspension with anodized FG43-S46 fork and rear shock seem almost harmless, not to mention the carbon-Dymag wheels entirely.

But go now, we let the monster out of the lab! Gently takes the engine on his work, no trace of unbridled power – as long as it goes down the pit lane. Hardly be classified in the hotel curve and the tap turned up a few millimeters, the force pulls on Pirelli slick and spits one out on the short straight. The brutal Brembo monoblock shrink the monster then together so that the fork sinks deeply and suddenly we fix it later with more compression damping.

Amazingly light can give in to the tyrant. No comparison with the original from 2004, which in every situation needs a strong, guiding hand. The super-light wheels and slicks their regards. And it’s coming out of the Hasseröder curve so far: The bike turns abruptly to the rear, like Frankenstein’s creature roars on the run from the lynch lustful mob and immediately makes it clear that it definitively with nice and well-behaved over.

But the performance of the Monster 1260 is just damn cool, especially since it’s so nice please. The engine calibration has succeeded in the DSB-makers perfectly. And as the twin turns up, just cream. On the back straight draws more madness to the captain neatly arms long and it provides a feeling as this twin had no limiter as if the thrust force never end.

The only thing einbremst one on the DSB-monster on the track, is the overall concept. The monster is just built only very limited for the slopes, and the brutal on-top power does not make it any better. As can ride Marc Meier still tinkering so the naked streaker has some extremely nervous, works its way through the long corners a little restless and has to be the major deficiency of the forequarters.

From there, the feedback is missing, prepared people are also facing the threat of attrition by the owner, not really, hineinzustechen with pressure on the front wheel in the corners. In contrast, you can live easily with the lightweight front end and the tail wagging slightly when accelerating.

But Marc knows his monster itself is a commissioned work. The client wanted a giant monster with MOT approval that allows it to shoot excellent and loves the big occasion – not the precise racer blade.

From technical point of view both monsters are finally succeeded in that. Marry Shelly’s gothic novel in as well as the magic of the Berlin workshop About morality decide we do not need. But who takes the time to kneel before this two-wheeled work of art and enjoy the details, who occasionally feel the people can do anything – they will just be just crazy enough.
