This isn’t the first customising kit Hookie have created – they’ve done them for the Triumph Bobber and BMW R nine T – but it is their first Ducati.

Hookie chose the Desert Sled as they wanted to create a bike that was comfortable in any situation, be that commuting, riding in the mountains or sunny rips through the countryside.

They wanted a solid and purposeful feel – a not unlike the perfect pair of trainers – so that’s the aesthetic they went for. The bulk of the changes come from adding new sidepanels with integrated lights in the front.

The kit has been designed to be bolt-on, so not only do you not need years of practice and hundreds of tools, you can also put it back to stock if you want to.

The first model has been painted in what they call ‘confident purple’ but once the kit is available in a few weeks (UK price TBC), you’ll be able to pick your own colourscheme.
