Painfully beautiful and dangerously fast.
Much like a classic sculpture, the base bike of a WSM Ducati (2009 Monster 1100) must start somewhere and can be likened to a raw slab of marble. Beautiful in the way many raw materials are. An object with infinite potential awaiting inspiration, vision, and the right tools for the job. Walt Siegl has those tools.
The latest in his Leggero series is the lightest, most powerful, and most expensive to date. No penny was pinched in the process of building this road capable track star. Weighing in at just under 300 pounds with fluids (minus gas) and putting down an estimated 120 HP, this missle will kill you with a smile on your face. This rolling sculpture isn't for the faint of heart or the weak wristed and commands attention on the bike and off.
Walt has carved out an instantly recognizable niché for himself among the landscape of custom motorcycling thanks to his stylistic instincts and his commitment to consistency. But, though you may have seen the Leggero before, this is his David.
