the ‘999vx’ motorcycle by venier customs has been restyled from a 2003 ducati 999s testastretta, coppa bassa. the modified race bike features STM EVO clutch, electronic speeds, rapid bike powertrain unit control and a discacciati front brake. completely transforming the original design, a new back frame and seat were built with an integrated tail light. furthermore, the pipe is a combination between a termignoni corse with a zard muffler. spoked wheels from a ducati 1000gt were adapted to the vehicle, while lighting was also changed and electric components stripped back.
