Expensive Taste

Ricky Monti

How much do you love your bike? Probably not as much as Vanni Oddera loves his...


It's hard to decide whether Italy's Daboot Crew puts more emphasis on partying or style, but one thing's for sure — they do both better than the rest. While walking around the pits during the first day of Gladiator Games practice here in Prague, I was blown away by how sick the European's bikes are — especially Italy's Vanni Oddera's KTM. I've known Daboot's Alvaro Dal Farra for some time now, and I've always admired how insane his chromed-out KTM's are, but I've never had the chance to inspect the rest of his crew's bikes.

After gazing at Vanni's bike for a good half hour, I began picking his brain. Check out his one-of-a-kind bike after the jump.

Instead of the KTM orange, Vanni opted to go for a blingin' red chrome, gold glitter, black and orange getup, with the addition of red Marzocchi forks and a custom Luis Vuitton seat. It's nearly impossible to find one non-aftermarket part on the thing.

Vanni has three KTM's — two in Italy and one that stays in Russia. To keep the bikes identical, he had three custom plastic and graphic kits created, which all boast 200 embedded Swarovski diamonds. That's 2,000 Euros worth of diamonds per bike!

Pay close attention to the swingarm ... yes, it's solid gold! Well, not really, but it might as well be. Nearly every aluminum part that could be anodized on his bike, was. According to Vanni, each wheel (front and back) is worth 2000 Euro's alone.

With such an elaborate bike, you think Vanni would put a fake Luis Vuitton seat on his bike? Hell no! "I stole my mom's 1,2000 Euro LV handbag, cut it up and covered my seat with it." Can you imagine how pissed his mom must've been? Crazy Italians!
