Bike Of The Day: 2007 Ducati 800SS Leggero Toronto By Walt Siegl

Designed and modified by Walt Siegl Motorcycles, each Leggero was personalized according to the preferences of its owner and named after the city they hailed from. This particular motorcycle, the “Toronto,” underwent modifications in 2014. The custom frame was constructed in-house using 4130 chrome moly tubing and weighs a reported 15 pounds. Urethane was used to create the fairing, fuel tank, and seat pan, which were finished in red with white striping. The front fender is made of carbon fiber, while the seat is upholstered in red leather.

The bike features factory Ducati instrumentation, but Magura hand controls and switch-gear were added. The wiring harness was simplified with a Ducati Performance ECU and Motogadget M unit. The suspension is comprised of Showa forks with gold valving and an adjustable Showa rear shock. Gold Brembo calipers with drilled rotors provide braking power for both the front and rear. The cast aluminum Brembo wheels are equipped with Dunlop Sportmax tires.

Power comes from an air-cooled 800cc V-twin has been blueprinted and boasts desmodromic valve actuation as well as a lightened flywheel. Power is transferred to the rear wheel via a 6-speed transmission and chain drive. Dual Keihin carburetors wear K&N pod air filters, while the factory headers have been ceramic coated and outfitted with HMF carbon fiber mufflers.
