IF A 200BHP Ducati Desmosedici-based trike sounds like it could float your boat then cop a load of this beast.

Designed by Nicolas Petit, a 25-year-old professional motorcycle mechanic based in Creil, France, the concept idea is drawn up using all but the rear of Ducati's MotoGP racer, allied to a meaty looking two-wheel front.

"This project is a mix between a motorcycle and a street quad. The base is without its Desmosedici fork, the rear is slightly restyled. The ATV-type front is grafted directly on to the engine chassis – simple and effective, Spartan and light,’ says Nicolas.

Looks a right giggle. Wonder what a two-wheel back end with a standard front would look like?

Nicolas. When you're ready, mate.
