Per the seller, “This one-of-a-kind sporting machine is the result of the compatibility of Cagiva and Ducati components from those model years when both brands were divisions of the same company with shared engineering. The goal of the custom build was to create a very special middleweight super sport machine incorporating the best individual major components and offering thrilling street performance and a race ready set up for track use.” It combines a Cagiva Alazzurra 350 frame with a Ducati 749cc engine to create something I’ve never seen before. What do you think about it?
The 749 engine is paired with 749 radiators, ECU, and gauge cluster. Other components include a Cagiva Mito front wheel with Ducati rotors in a 900SS fork. The rear suspension (shock/swingarm/wheel) is from a 999S. There’s also Brembo master cylinders and a handcrafted fuel tank under the seat. The result is called the Madman: “The result of the happy marriage of all this alloy and magic is a sensational bike to ride. The compact wheelbase and frame geometry delivers an exceptionally nimble motorcycle and the strong 749 powerplant provides rocket power for tight roads and tracks. The sound is raucous and rowdy and the “MadMan” really rocks.”
