Famed American custom bikes institution Roland Sands Design (RSD) showed off its latest work based off the Ducati 1299 Superleggera. Christened as the RSD KH9, the firm has raised this Italian superbike’s sex appeal even further.
In its blog post, RSD highlights that the KH9 was commissioned for a customer who happens to be a drag racer and an avid fan of motorcycle racing. The bike’s custom outlooks drew inspiration from the Jeff Koons BMW art car, resulting in the special brushed paint scheme crafted by Chris Wood of Airtrix donned on the RSD KH9.
Furthermore, the bike’s entire bodywork and the fuel tank was also treated with the satin gloss and brushed satin metal paint scheme, whilst a clear varnish coating plus a series of outrageous colour accents complements that. Adding further to that were the polished billet parts and triple clamps for a greater bling effect too.
Other eye-catching bits include several pinstripings that adds a retro touch, followed by the ‘Ride Fast Take Chances’ lettering in matching colours painted on in its rear set of the stock Marchesini forged wheels. RSD builders even fitted an Akrapovič titanium exhaust system lifted from the limited Ducati Panigale Superleggera, promising a special soundtrack to match this special superbike’s outrageous outlooks.
The stock bike’s levers have been replaced with CRG carbon fibre types as well, followed by a custom billet tank cap and Bonamici rearsets. The RSD KH9 is primed with an extensive array of carbon fibre parts such as the sprocket cover, swingarm and chain guards, rear brake line guard and shock guard, the rear exhaust heatshield, countershaft sprocket cover, brake and clutch reservoir mounts, rear fender trim, and the engine bulkhead covers.
