It was the rising interest in cafe racers and street trackers which pulled Earle Motors’ Alex Earle out of the automotive design industry to start and conceptualise his own projects right from initial design to fully operational prototypes. It was not as easy as it may look, as it took a lot of exploration of ideas to get together a list of components and bring this Ducati Tracker to life. However, the very next step which was taken by Alex was smart enough to not let every old Ducati, Harley or Triumph owner to go through the same process or complication which he did, for he came up with a concept of making kits which were ready to mount on specific generation motorcycles. The Earle Motors Ducati Tracker is one of the examples showcased by Alex.
Built around a 900 cc Ducati air-cooled, carbureted engine, this Earle Motors Ducati Tracker weighs around 347 pounds without fuel, whereas the fuel tank has a capacity to gulp around 4.75 gallons of fuel. In the front, the custom bar clamp risers held the Vortex J Murph flat tracker bars with Brembo radial brake and clutch lever, behind the carbon fibre number plate with integrated headlamp, below which there was a pair of carbon fibre fork protectors fitted. In the mid-section, the stock airbox was replaced with a K&N air filter, a fully customised and tuned exhaust system and carbon fibre body support. At the rear, there was a custom LED tail light with turn indicators, custom 19” inch wheels milled by RSD, Ducati performance seat and Maxxis DTR-1 track tire with custom graphics. And above all these factors, the kit includes a simple 4 bolt body which is detachable, so if you’re up for trading in your first generation Ducati Monster for a new one, think again.
