LEGGERO 2012 by Walt Siegl

The first of a series of super light bikes based on air-cooled Ducati engines built by our friend Walt Siegl.


“I wanted to use classic sport/racing design elements that are clearly recognizable. That includes almost all aspects of the build, from exhaust to frame design.  The frame is built with 4130 chrome moly steel tubing and weighs 19 lbs. Front and rear suspension are by Showa, unless customer opts for Ohlins. The engines are rebuilt 900cc two-valve Ducati units, fitted with 39mm Keihins FCRs.”

This model comes in either mono-shock or dual-shock set-up. There is a half-fairing option as well. Bodywork choices are: full carbon fiber, clear-coated or painted; or painted vacuum-molded fiberglass.

Price: $29,500 for the mono-shock version.
