Got a carbon fetish? This one's right up your street then
VISORDOWN has been sent this image of this ultra-expensive, carbon-clad Ducati 999S from German tuning house BeFaster.
The bike, which benefits from a carbon frame, wheels, swingarm and fairing, weighs a claimed 143 kg - over 30kg lighter than the original 999.
It's reported BeFaster have also tuned the Ducati's V-twin engine to produce in excess of 180bhp.
The cost? How does £130,000 grab you?
We think it's beautiful, but imagine the sound it'd make if you threw one up the road!
Seems a long way to go to try and prove that you can polish a turd.
And im still not convinced.

That chain needs oiling.
130k and can't afford a tin of chain grease?

Should be pretty fast at 143kg with 180bhp, but 130k for what was an ugly bike, and still is, no chance

145kg... 180bhp... 1241Bhp per ton (Or is it tonne. I can never remeber). Thats just under what an F1 car makes... Ouch.
As for Ceramic brakes, I don't know about you, but I realy wouldent want to wait for them to heat up on the road with that much power and that little weight to get the heat in to them.
You would have thought for £130k they could have done somthing exciting, in terms of enginering, rather than just replace the body with carbon... Seems more show than go.
