Nude models in body paint pose as a Ducati motorcycle and rider

Brooklyn-based bodypainter Trina Merry's latest work just looks like a woman riding a red motorcycle.


At first glance, Trina Merry's latest work just looks like a woman riding a red motorcycle.

But upon closer inspection, it becomes clear to see that the vehicle itself is made up of five more nude models in body paint, contorting themselves to form the exact replica of a Ducati motorbike.

The result is an incredibly realistic human sculpture, part of the Brooklyn-based bodypainter's Human Motorcycle Project.

TECH UPDATE: Ducati’s Desmo Variable Timing- 1198 Testastretta V-Twin / Cycle World

TECH UPDATE: Ducati’s Desmo Variable Timing- 1198 Testastretta V-Twin / Cycle World | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

With DVT, Ducati’s 1198 Testastretta V-twin makes excellent torque and power. 

When I interviewed CEO Claudio Domenicali about product plans for Ducati after the company was purchased by Audi, he surprised me by confirming that development work would intensify on the Testastretta family of eight-valve desmo engines. Back then, all the attention of the motorcycling world was focused on the new 1199, and Domenicali, a positive man, confirmed there was a lot more performance potential in that engine. He said there could be a substantial improvement in the quality of combustion throughout the rev range via better control of the turbulence in the intake charge at lower rpm.

Look back: 2009 Milan Motorcycle Show Photo Gallery

Look back: 2009 Milan Motorcycle Show Photo Gallery | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it
EICMA is what the Italians call it but most know it as the Milan Motorcycle Show. It's so big one could spend a couple of days trying to take it all in. This years "fair" was marked by plenty of big new bike introductions (here's the link for the shots from Monday night's huge kickoff Ducati press conference:http://photos.ducati.net/Ducati-Events/EICMA-2009-Milan-Motorcycle/10266553_LzjSb ) and a couple of big manufacturers who didn't attend because of the economy. Given that a medium size booth here can cost a whole bunch of euros I suppose the bigger surprise is that this years fair doesn't seem smaller at all. The first two days are for press and foreign trade visitors and there were plenty of them as well. Join us for a look at what lots of people travel half way around the world to see.......

Cal Crutchlow powers to excellent second place...
 From Ducati:
 
Cal Crutchlow (Ducati Team #35) – 2nd (1’28.642)
“I’m really pleased with the lap time we achieved in the end and second position is great for Ducati: I think we deserved that. It was a decision made at the start of qualifying to go out and push immediately with the ‘rain-ish’ conditions, and I set a good time. Then I changed tyres and went out again and set my best time! Tomorrow I’m sure it’s going to be a long and tough race. Phillip Island is a challenging circuit because the conditions can change every lap. I believe that tomorrow’s race start at 4 pm will make things more difficult because of the cooler temperatures. Hopefully we can use the asymmetric tyre in the front and the same as the other guys in the rear.”
 
Andrea Dovizioso (Ducati Team #04) – 10th (1’29.088)
“Today we were simply not able to make much improvement with the feeling of the GP14.2, but in qualifying we set some good lap times so that’s quite positive. Tomorrow’s race will for sure be difficult, but we have to believe in our abilities: here at Phillip Island over 27 laps the tyres drop off a lot, and anything can happen.”
