Anyone have creative names for their RC51?

So i've just rebuilt an RC51 SP1 which has been sitting under a tarp for 6 years and in a smashed state. I've done a full custom job on it with swingarm extentions, custom triumph exhaust, race plastics with two round headlights on the one side....the list goes on.. I'm trying to think up a creative name for it to unveil it at one of our bike nights. I'm not creative when it comes to this kind of stuff, I've thought of just callling it the RC52, RC52.0 , RC51 Mark II, i like the concept of a phenix but hate that name...

Yes, apparently you are somewhat challanged at coming up with names. Example: mattducati for a RC51 forum.



Now, I'm just as bad, so here's the kettle calling the pot black.
All in good fun, couldn't resist.

no worries man, I know i'm bad with coming up with names, but I also love my ducati collection more than my RC51 hah..I just really liked the history of the RC and why it was built. I've been having too much fun on my Panigale R to really take things too seriously, RC is definitely a fun bike so im keeping it lol

I'm interested in seeing how this comes out. My plastics have seen better days and I could use a new set, but I don't see that happening without a windfall of cash.Did you get the whole bike done or just side fairings? Don't mind me asking what did this run you?
