What can you get each time a mechanical engineer student having a love for cars gets his hands on the Ducati motorcycle? This beautifully crafted Ducati S2R800 Duc Soup (derives from DUCati and Soup).
Former student and motorcycle enthusiast Manuel Ayllon decided to construct this vehicle for their final year project at Instituto Catolico de Artes e Industria in Madrid. The 23 year old mechanical engineer got outside assistance from both Todd Silicato (owner of Todd’s Cycle in Hawaii ) and Anthony Keeling (owner of Chassis Design Co. in Riverside, CA ) to the project.
The thought behind the concept ended up being to question the usage of numerous unnecessary bike components used throughout the building process, specifically Manuel wanted to understand, ” Why are bikes so heavy and complicated when it isn‘t strictly necessary? ” With that being said, he stripped this Ducati right all the way down to its bare essentials. Finished result is really a head turning motorcycle that weighs in at 155kg having a full tank of gas. Take a look at many of the photos from the Ducati below.
