Ducati Monster 821 “Bologna Dogfight” by Rough Crafts

Bologna DogfightWinston Yeh, the founder and lead designer of Rough Crafts, recently introduced their newest custom creation at the workshop—an impressive Ducati Monster 821 called the “Bologna Dogfight,” which features a sleek, all-black design. Based the Ducati Monster 821, a café racer with clean and sophisticated lines, the design of this specific motorcycle draws inspiration from various elements present in Winston Yeh’s renowned BMW R nineT builds.

“I wanted it to have those classic café racer lines,” Yeh shared in an interview on the bike, adding “A bit rounded and elegant—but still very recognizably Rough Crafts.”

This unique Ducati Monster 821 showcases remarkable elements such as a meticulously designed scalloped aluminum fuel tank adorned with handmade Rough Craft badges, retro-styled SC-Project megaphone mufflers, a CNC milled subframe, and a stylish two-piece leather seat resting on a 3D-printed tail cowl.

Rough Crafts enhanced the performance of the stock front forks by installing an Andreani cartridge kit and replaced the bottom yoke with a CNC Racing variant. For the rear suspension, a blacked-out Öhlins shock was installed.

To reduce weight, 17″ carbon fiber wheels sourced from BST were utilized, while Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV Corsa tires were chosen to provide excellent sporty traction.
