SIC-4Ever Marco Simoncelli Tribute Bike Concept by Paolo Tesio

It’s not the first and it’s definitely not the last time when Italian designer and bike modder Paolo Tesio makes it on autoevolution. After delivering some completely stunning body kits for Ducati, Paolo’s latest creation is a homage to the memory of Marco Super Sic Simoncelli and in case it makes it into a real product, then it’s most likely one of the coolest tributes to the soon-to-be MotoGP legend.

Putting it bluntly, the SIC-4Ever is a MotoGP bicycle: didn’t see this one coming, but I’m ever so glad it did. The two-wheeler is a pedelec project, meaning it can be used as a casual bike, but it can also run on batteries.

If you know one or two things about Ducati’s modern high-performance sport bikes, then you’ll instantaneously link the chassis of the SIC-4Ever to the monocoque design of the 1199 Panigale and the Desmosedici GP prototype. Starts to make sense, doesn’t it? Even the chain follows the same design idea, with the integration in what the single-sided swingarm of a motorcycle should be.

Add in the enormous Ohlins-like USD forks and the huge petal rotor with MotoGP-like radial caliper for even more mind-blowing style. Such a front brake is overkill, of course, but we’re talking MotoGP technology this time.

Paolo thinks of adding a larger rear tire for better performance in electric mode, with batteries obviously inside the monocoque frame. Can you imagine how cool unveiling Paolo Tesio’s SIC-4Ever bike at the Italian GP in Mugello be?
