Who says motorcycling and whiskey don’t mix? Islay single malt producer Smokehead is getting together with bike designer Tyler Lunceford to build a sweet ride from scratch. The Smoker will be a “one of a kind, customized Ducati inspired by vintage racing motorcycles,” promises the distillery, whose bottles feature a welcoming skull. In other words, expect smoke, lightning and heavy-metal thunder.
Hell bent for leather
Lunceford is known as the Ducati whisperer of the tri-state area, aka New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. We’re no hog experts, but we gather that’s a lot better than being the Honda Civic whisperer of the Tri-Cities area (don’t ask). Either way, watch this space for updates. At least in theory, the new machine will pair well with a 58% ABV Smokehead High Voltage, which the distillery bills as a recipe for tinnitus.
