A Ducati,

like no other,

 and this is it, Bernard Mont’s ‘Nowhere Faster’ Nitrous Ducati Sprint Racer, 

 built for one thing only, travelling the the asphalt 1/8th mile as quickly as possible from a standstill,

 originally from the village of Mettet, Bernard shares a racing pedigree as impressive as the nearby circuit where winners include Agostini, Surtees and Duke. "My professional career began at the end of the eighties in race cars, in the French Rally Championship, European F3000 Championship and Belgian Production Championship" explains Mont, by day he’s spent the last 25 years as a mechanical engineer, while in his down time he runs a small Ducati tuning business, and in his “free free time” as he calls it, he builds bikes for himself like Nowhere Faster,

 last year he competed in the Sultans of Sprint series aboard a Ducati Monster S2R also fitted with hub steering called ‘Nowhere Fast’, now he’s back with the ultimate tip of the cap to Taglioni’s Ducati dreams and Difazio’s desire to do steering better with the bike that sits before you, ‘Nowhere Faster’, “For 2018 I decided to build a specific bike for this challenge, the project started in October 2017 with the design (autocad) and build of the frame and other parts,” 

a custom fuel tank sits near the rear tyre, with the Nitrous bottle up front for uniform weight distribution, the engine is from a Multistrada 1000 DS, internals are all relatively stock, how will it perform? As soon as I know I will post the times, or you can keep up with Nowhere Faster on Instagram, photography by Marc Holstein.
