Stock Ducati motorcycles are good if that’s all you have seen. Then the minute you encounter this Ducati 1198 SP custom you realize there’s something missing from your stock bike.
There is no doubt that Ducati builds good motorcycles, but I don’t think a good motorcycle is enough for a die hard Ducati fan or a motorcycle enthusiast.
A great custom motorbike just doesn’t have to look good and feel great it also has to perform. Radical Ducati from Spain has just the right recipe, their latest creation a Ducati 1198 SP custom aka “Matador Racer” de toros is ready to rock the racing tracks.
This custom bike is packed with Radical Ducati’s innovative material selection (carbon fiber RAD), sensible construction techniques and modern aesthetics. The definition of Radical lies within each of Radical Ducati’s custom crafts.
Lets take a look at the build, based around the Ducati 1198 SP. This custom bike features a RAD 02 Aluminium frame, RAD 02 Aluminium sub-frame and a RAD 02 Aluminium swing-arm. The stock Ducati 1198 SP engine modification includes ported heads, lightened flywheel, EVR anti-hooping clutch and the exhaust is a 2 in 1 Super Mario system.
At the front this Ducati 1198 SP custom features an Öhlins front fork, RAD 02 ergal triple clamps yokes, Domino quick open gas throttle and RAD 02 ergal clip-ons. The front braking unit houses a Discacciati brake and clutch radial pump and Discacciati rotors. At the rear this Ducati 1198 SP custom features an Öhlins rear shock and Discacciati rear brake kit with support, 200mm rear rotor and four-piston caliper.
