2013 Zaeta DT
The tank and seat unit have both changed. The seat is a very tasty carbon unit, a good, if subtle development of the typical street tracker seat. The tank is still very angular but has more capacity. There are two specs of Zaetas in these photos.
The one with the gold frame has RWU forks, a Vibram branded seat cover and a stubby Termignoni pipe that the Italian exhaust specialists made for DT. Zaeta are a tiny company, but they are very highly regarded by some bigger players in the North Italian motorcycle manufacturing belt.
The bike below has Öhlins front forks (all Zaetas have an Öhlins rear shock). It also has a cool multi-bulb front light and a different style Termi system.
This bike is a fully homologated, small production run bike, not a one-off special. That means it's legal across Europe, where laws for modifying bikes are very tight. We featured the Zaeta story in Sideburn 11 if you want to find out more. G
