We’ve featured plenty of Ducati products here on inStash before, and with each one it seems like the product line keeps improving. To mark the unveiling of the Ducati 1199 Panigale this week at the EICMA International Motorcycle Show in Milan, we’re presenting you with more of the same. This street-ready racer allows for perfect handling and at just 362 pounds, is as lightweight as they come, while the 195 horses this ride is packing delivers plenty of power. The bells and whistles also add a lot of value with an ABS, electronic suspension, three riding modes, Engine Brake Control, Read More
Connoisseurs of the road looking for something different will be pleased with this latest offering from Harley-Davidson. Boasting the best power-to-weight ratio of any CVO – thanks to the Twin Cam 110B with a Heavy Breather intake – the 2013 Harley-Davidson CVO Breakout is anything but typical. It sports hand-polished steel on the fuel tank and fenders, a chrome plated front-end assembly, 21-spoke cast aluminum Turbine wheels, and gator-patterned seats. But what really makes this bike stand out is the Hard Candy Gold Dust and Liquid Sun paint job with Pagan Gold graphics. Absolutely beautiful.
Any bike named HP – standing for high performance – better have some serious power. And with a 4-cylinder 1000cc engine that cranks out 193 horses, we’re pretty sure the new BMW HP4 delivers. Aside from a fast ride, you also get plenty of high-tech features like the Race ABS system, Launch Control for perfect starts, shift assistant for optimum gearshifts, Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), and Dynamic Damping Control (DDC) – a world first for serial production motorcycles. With 4 available settings including Rain, Sport, Race and Slick, response will never suffer. Our advice? Go for the competition package and get yourself the racing blue Read More
Shaw Speed & Custom is at it again. Yeah, them. The Shaw F1-XLR Harley Nightster takes inspiration from Harley-Davidson board racers of the 1920s. Custom features include a ram-air intake, custom pipes, modified Covington rocker covers, shortened cam cover, larger pushrod tubes, a relocated oil reservoir, a small race-style rear fender, and smoky grey paintwork (the same paint used by the McLaren Formula One team).

It started with a guy named Scott, born in 1973, who was determined to build a custom bike that would make the rest of us drool. It ended at DP Customs, where they built one bad, bad bike. The DP Customs ‘Seventy Three’ was built using a 1973 Ironhead Harley that had already been hardtailed and raked. They added a black springer, their signature crossover exhaust, and then powdercoated the cam cover, sprocket cover, primary cover and rocker boxes in satin black. Throw in the hint of white and blue on the matte finished tank, and the bright blue wheels with the whitewall rear Read More
Ducati’s design team in Bologna was challenged to create their dream motorcycle. The Ducati Diavel Cromo (translation: chrome devil) is what they envisioned. More of a statement maker than the Monster Diesel Edition we covered last month, the Diavel Cromo features a chromium-plated tank, gloss black body, horizontal seat stitching, a silver pin-stripe running down the front fender, the word “Cromo” laser-engraved into the air-duct panels, and new custom 14-spoke, 17-inch machined wheels. Rest assured, you’ll still be getting all of the same performance and technology coming from the standard Diavel, including a 162hp Testastretta 11 engine, Ride-by-Wire throttle system, Ducati Traction Control, Ducati Riding Modes, ABS and hands-free ignition.
Two iconic brands, Ducati and Diesel come together to bring you the Ducati Monster Diesel Edition. The bike starts with Ducati’s Monster 1100EVO and comes with the standard black Trellis frame, wheels and engine covers. But here’s where it gets interesting. The Monster Diesel Edition features an exclusive ‘Diesel Brave Green matte’ military-style paint job, Diesel-label seat, leather passenger seat cover, front brake callipers finished in bright yellow, new exhaust system heat shields and personalized nameplates. And the bike isn’t the only thing you’ll be rocking from this collaboration. The brands also announced a Diesel-designed Ducati capsule collection that includes slim-fit biker jackets, shirts, jeans, belts Read More
Need a sweet custom bike on a recession-like budget? The Shaw Speed & Custom XL1200R is about as good as it gets. Using a 2006 Harley Sportster XLR1200R, they lowered the bike, remounted the headlight, modified the tank with ribs, satin powedercoated the wheels, and added a black spring mounted solo seat, and bespoke rear fender and handlebar. The result? A unique ride that will turn heads everywhere you go. And the cost? Just $13,500.
