Behind the Build
Our initial build idea for the Unico Stealth was to maintain a retro/modern approach while incorporating a raw and industrial look by using materials, colors and choices which would represent that. We knew from the beginning we would be using Satin Black as our main color, from that initial choice, we designed and chose the elements that would best contrast and showcase around the stealth satin paint job. We started by stripping our original 2007 Ducati Monster S4R Testastretta down to the frame, from there we started the the build process.

Cutting the frame from center back to rebuild it to fit our custom tail and seat. All frame work done in stainless steel using the same tubular specks and materials as the OEM sizes. We built a new rear frame which runs under the seat to support our custom UNICO MOTO tail and suede seat design. Custom tabs on the frame were added to hold our UNICO custom stainless steel speed grills. These start with a hand built tubular frame which holds stainless steel perforated grills. The Grills are molded following the natural design of the tank and frame contour and are a two piece accessory which mounts to the frame of the bike. This not only adds to the look to the bike but also functionality, being practically a see-through part this allows us to see the beauty of the motorcycle engine’s open belts while protecting the rider from any contact during riding.

Tank and Tail:
Our tank and tail combo incorporates a tank from a Ducati 749 custom mounted to new brackets on the frame along with a middle bridge. The tank also has a CNC gas cap. The tail design borrows lines and inspiration from the new tank and it perfectly contours the tank along with a very comfortable suede seat with red stitching. The tail also incorporates all LED lights that are sleek yet bright to meet street legal standards.
OEM foot controls were rebuilt, upgraded and customized with a new paint job, cnc break reservoirs, new parts and Custom carbon fiber heel guards for a modern look and better functionality due to the new more aggressive seating position.
The OEM Swingarm got a new paint job in flat black to match the color scheme and received a new powder coated sprocket, chain and chain guard along with other upgraded parts which add to the look of the rear end.
Tires and a Wheels
Wheels are OEM Forged Marchesini wheels with a new gloss black paint job in order to contrast the flat black tail and tank of the bike. We then wrapped them with Perelli Racing tires for a great ride and grip.
Our approach to this exhaust was to use the space already designed for it but to push the limits when it came to sizing and output while keeping everything tucked under the engine. We wanted the side and rear end of this build to be fully exposed, taking a box style approach to the exhaust system and cutting the pipes at an aggressive angle giving this exhaust a different look from every position that you look at it from.
To finish off the build we also added a carbon fiber rear fender along with custom-made decals in flat black, flat grey and metallic finishes to accentuate the UNICO MOTO and the unforgettable Ducati Brand legacy which holds so much appreciation and passion all around the world.
