It takes a special flavor of nutty to take a $25,000 superbike and convert it from a track-focused speed machine into a knobby-tired off-roader. MotoCorsa is exactly that kind of nuts.
The Portland-based Ducati dealer has taken the all-conquering 1199 Panigale S — the superbike of the moment — and transformed it into something that’s able to tackle the trails. If just.
“We do an annual off-road trip with a few friends, down in Southeastern Oregon, out in the middle of nowhere,” MotoCorsa’s general manager Arun Sharma told RideApart. “I had a set of Continental TKC80s to put on it, when one of my friends comes in and says, ‘You know what you should do? Put those TKCs on the Panigale!’”
Thus began a chain of events that would make the world’s first — and only — Ducati 1199 Panigale TerraCorsa.
The video below gives you a brief taste of the action, including the world’s greatest motorcycle park job.
