After 15 years of making unique Ducati street bikes, Radical Ducati has announced the closing of its doors. The Spanish firm has made a name for itself by building custom Ducatis from various pieces of the Ducati parts bin, but now Pepo and Reyes are off for new adventures. We will miss their unique flare for design, but wish the folks at Radical Ducati all the best in their future endeavors.

Message from Radical Ducati:

  2. Wow. How disappointing. These were collectively some of the nicest bikes I’ve ever seen. The Café Veloce is heartbreakingly beautiful.

    My favourite builder by far. I hope this is because of a creative reason rather than an economical/financial one.

    I’ll be waiting for their next project. That’s for sure.
