Mad Max Dark Duke!
A bit more about the story behind this bike from Christof:
This bike started life on the set of Fast and the Furious 6! It was used there for a few takes on some of the action sequences, even if they did get left mostly on the cutting floor.
Anyway, returning home to Mattighofen it found it’s way into Nico’s capable hands where he has taken it from a standard Duke 4 to the Dark Duke which we had posted originally on HKR-Racing here (https://www.facebook.com/
media/set/?set=a. 10151576786824531.1073741830. 335293039530&type=1) which was also shared on Derestricted.
Now over the winter Nico’s idea was to make it more beastly.
This however is just a step along the way. The bike is not complete as shown here, so Nico is open to all Critique and Ideas as to where to take it next.
Things done so far:
Handlebar — Black
Air Box Cover — Clear
Subframe — Black
Main and Crash guard frame — Husaberg Gray
Full Akrapović race exhaust
In street mode: the front fender was exchanged for the RC8R carbon one
Wheels where upgraded to the new 2014 Spec
For Mad Max version the Wheels where exchanged again for the once from an SMC 690
Custom Seat covers where made
EJC Race rear sets where powder coated black
Just about all Carbon parts that are available in the KTM PowerParts Catalogue where added. This includes:
1) Radiator shrouds
2) Rear Tail eliminator— including switch to PP numberplate holder and EXC tail light
3) Ignition surround
4) Chain Guard
5) Main Sprocket cover
Things on the wish list include:
Other Forks more suited to this type of riding
With that the rear shock will need to be modified and adjusted
The Foot pegs could be replaced with pivot pegs
Perhaps also the Subframe as Pablo has suggested with his White Duke?
This build is ready to ride, but not at the end of its development…
