First Look- Terra Mostro Adventure Bike
 
Spy photos are great, photoshops are fun, but this is the real deal.

I'm fortunate enough to have a good friend at Overland Motorcycles who gave me the oppurtunity that we all want....the chance to help mold a developing motorcycle.

The "Terra Mostro"

A Ducati based dual sport based on the idea of a the mid displacement adventure bike we've all been talking about. As I've only ridden an earlier prototype on the street I can't give a full ride impression yet. Even after riding with me an seeing the way I treat my bikes , I've still been invited to give it a full test in the dirt soon :evil .

More to come............

That's nice.. I've always liked the monsters too :raabia

3.6 Gal tank might need a bit of a boost..

I like it :clap That head light is the bees knees..

Interesting that skid plate sub frame. Wonder if the V-Strom exhaust could be routed like that to get it out of the way..

I like it!!!!!!
 
Sweeeeet lookin bike . . . . . Looks relatively lightweight.

Any idea the approx. weight?

Tourmeister 03-01-2007 09:25 PM

Sweet! Any plans for the capability to carry luggage? Or is this a dual sport only in the sense that it is dirt worthy and also street legal?

Looks Great,

Maybe a couple of mods here and there, this should have been done years ago, Go the Duc

Cheers

In the second picture it looks like the exhaust is offset, not directly above the tire.
