Blown Ducati

During one of our photoshoots we had Jason Britton take a Hypermotard for a spin; 

Word on the street was that the ride ended with 
the Duc looking something like this. The truth
is something a bit less messy, but...

Elongated wheelies and aircooled Ducatis...

...don't mix very well

This is a simulated image of what happened

The actual culprit was oil shooting out of the crankcase breather. Lesson learned - If you're going to impress the local gelato crowd with your extended 12 o'clocks you'd best buy the extended warranty.

*No Ducati was (permanently) harmed in the making of this blog post
