Roland Sands creates a custom Ducati Hypermotard

Roland Sands is no stranger to fast bikes, nor is it outside his normal realm to modify a V-Twin-based machine. Usually, though, those V-Twins are from Harley Davidson. Sands goes a bit outside the box with his latest custom creation, the Ultramotard, based upon a stock Ducati Hypermotard platform. We have no details on what exactly Sands has done to this beast, but a look at the photos definitely shows that not much went untouched. The Ducati "L-Twin" engine has certainly been modified, as you can see - but what changes, if any, were made inside the cases are as yet unknown. The snazzy paint job looks great, as do the custom dual exhaust pipes exiting off to the side. Performance Machine parts were used liberally, and those wheels are likely PM items that you'll be able to buy. Expect to see much more of this bike as it begins making the show circuit shortly.
