The Scrappier from Deus 15 August 16


From superbike to supermoto, The Scrappier has held on to its ‘super’ aspirations and gone off the rails and left normal conventions in the scrap bin. Starting as a full fairing’d KTM RC8 with a 1150cc V-twin packing 151hp, it has turned into a scrappy delinquent who shows up to bare-knuckle fights in a gentleman’s tuxedo.

The poison apple paint is a masterful work starting with a white pearl base coat and adding a layer of bright candy red, and finishing with a black candy top coat. The resulting presentation is stupefying, appearing nearly pitch-black in low light with metallic deep reds and purples shining thru the highlights in full sunlight, showcasing the curves and angles of Woolie’s (Michael Woolaway) handiwork.

One of the special features lending to bike’s unique silhouette is the seat design, built for the purpose of sliding up on the tank while doing crispy maneuvers on the track.

Woolie has created a knockout with this one, dancing the line between black-tie etiquette and dangerously fun agility.
