It's not a style you usually see from Deus, but it goes to show that the company has a special way with motorcycles. Named the Scrappier, the bike is based on a KTM RC8 that boasts a beastly 1150cc engine V-Twin engine that produces 151 hp. 

Melding superbike and supermoto DNA into a sophisticated package, the bike is wrapped in a poison apple paint that goes into stealth mode in low light and unveils its rich coloring when under bright sunlight. 

Other highlights include a custom chromolly subframe, handmade aluminum tank and radiator shrouds, 58mm Marzocchi forks, HMC Racing Öhlins shock rear suspension, Marchesini wheels, Beringer brakes and Brembo calipers, Rizoma Bars, and Magura hand controls.
