There is something absurd in this project, as well as to race 300 km/h on two wheels, or trying to think of matching Michael Jordan's records. The German sportswear brand BSTN has decided to combine the two challenges, creating a model of Ducati 916 motorbike and customizing it with the design of the Nike Air Jordan XI 'Concord', released in recent days.

BSTN has teamed up with leading customization workshop ‘IMPULS’ to create a one-of-a-kind motorcycle, the Ducati 916 'Concord'. The inspiration came from Michael Jordan's passion for motorcycle racing, and the choice fell on two of the models that best represent the brand's worlds. The frame is made of carbon fiber and each part has been extravagantly tailored or even recreated using 3D-print technology to fit the Air Jordan XI, designed by Tinker Hatfield.

The colors are the typical white and black, with the graphics of the Jumpman and the BSTN logos on the side, as well as number 45, like a real racing bike. The traction pattern of the shoe lasered into the bike’s tires and a custom seat mimicking the shoes‘ revolutionary upper with a blend of outdoor materials, leather and neoprene. A great attention to details, the purple brakes as well as the transparent rubber handles represent the shank and color-pops on the AJXI, and the clear rubber handlebars are inspired by the distinct icy outsole of the shoe worn by Micheal to defeat the Monstars in "Space Jam".
