TUCKER, Ga. - Carbon fiber and Ducati go together, but by now everyone has seen blood-red Italian machines dripping in the high-tech composite material. So how does a carbon fiber specialist differentiate themselves in such a niche? By painting their project bike gold, of course!
The brilliant gold and carbon fiber Ducati Multistrada 1200 built by Bestem can grab your eye. But upon closer inspection you quickly realize that this bike isn’t just touched upon with CF panels; the entire bodywork set, from fenders to the windscreen has been replaced by Bestem’s glossy autoclave-built lightweight CF replacement parts.
Ranging from smaller parts like the exhaust cover ($79.95) to major body panels such as the tank side covers ($399.95), Bestem has completely shed the original bodywork. Complete total bike applications are available for a variety of European machines (with a few specialized Japanese applications), and for many painted OEM parts, the Bestem CF options are actually more cost-effective, making this an ideal upgrade from stock after a mishap.
