    Default Carducci Dual Sport

    Carducci Dual Sport is a company which customises your motorcycle on order basis. I came across these motorcycles and decided to share it with my fellow xBhpians. The bikes look like this -

    Wondering which bike is this derived from. What could have been modified to make this, a Honda, Yamaha or Suzuki. No sir, it is a Harley Davidson. Whaaat??? From which angle. But apparently it is!

    The bikes used are the Sportster and the Iron 883. The only parts from the original bike on the custom are the frame, motor, brake calipers, instruments, oil tank, throttle and handle bar mountings.


    V-Twin Motor The Sportster® motor is proven reliable, air cooled, narrow and loaded with torque
    Frame Stock Sportster® frame with minor modifications
    Suspension Front: Ohlins 48mm USD forks mounted in strong triple clamps. Integrated Scotts steering damper
    Rear: Ohlins twin shocks on extended billet aluminum swingarm
    Wheels 140/80-18 rear, 90/90-21 front. A good combination for off-road handling
    Lighting Front headlight is a 55 watt halogen beam (an LED version is also available from Trail Tech®), and LED brake light and blinkers made to handle the vibrations of off-road riding
    Fly Screen The fly screen frame is made of structurally strong sheet aluminum and supports a tinted polycarbonate wind deflector that reduces wind on the body
    Controls Stock Sportster® throttle, speedometer, tachometer, brake, clutch, and wire harness
    Rear Rack & Fender Structurally strong for strapping down a tool kit, 2x 1/2 gal fluid cannisters on the sides, and more
    Skid Plate Protects the leading edge and underside of the motor from flying debris and from rolling over large objects like rocks, stumps, et cetera
    Crash Bar Steel welded construction crash bar mounts to the frame and protects the leading edge of the gas tank
    Kick Stand Strong Chromemoly steel tubing with a large foot area for soft off-road surfaces. Adapts to the stock H-D kickstand mount
    Stability Long wheelbase and generous rake and trail make the SC3 Adventure stable at speed and it does well in loose sandy conditions
    Riding Position Foot controls and handlebars are positioned for comfortable dual sport off-road riding standing position. Seat is narrow in the front, wide in the back. Good for standing and longer distance seated riding
    Range Hand formed aluminum 6.3 gallon gas tank provides 200+ miles range before hitting reserve. Option for smaller 2.75 gallon aluminum gas tank
    Motor & Frame '93-'03 Sportster® motor and frame (w/ minor modifications to frame)
    Wheelbase 63.5 inch
    Steering Rake / Trail 30 degress / 5.6 inch
    Triple Clamp Offset 0.71 inch (18mm)
    Suspension Travel +8 inch Rear, +10 inch Front
    Seat Height 35.5 inch (neutral), ~33 inch (with rider on bike)
    Weight 475 lbs (without gasoline)
