Radical Ducati Café Veloce

Seeing how popular the work of Radical Ducati has been on our site, both with the Radical Ducati 9½ and Radical Ducati RAD02 Imola, we thought we’d bring you another one of the Spanish group’s fabulous creations: The Radical Ducati Café Veloce. Based off a Ducati Sport Classic, the Café Veloce features the same DS 1000 air-cooled two-valve motor, and steel tube frame as the now discontinued Ducati, but grows upon the Sport Classic’s cafe inspired lines.

Tastefully refining the Café Veloce into a sleeker and more dynamic package, Radical Ducati has created the Café Veloce to be devoid of Ducati’s more bland touches to the GT1000. In case you haven’t noticed yet, we’re smitten with the Café Veloce, even if it’s not usually the kind of thing we’d go for in our own garage. Photos after the jump.

    @ DeezToolz: well.. DON’T! This thing looks awesome, but it’s no MH900e. Don’t even think about selling that masterpiece. You’re so lucky to have it. Man…

    As for the present piece of collection, I think it looks sooo much better than the Radical Ducati 9½ and a bit better than the Radical Ducati RAD02 Imola. These two look almost “cheap” compared to this Ducati Café Veloce. Well done, Radical!… The only thing I still don’t really like is the headlight. Too small, the lens is also too clear for any “vintage” feel. I think the original big round “eye” would have worked better.

    Edit: I see they’ve put Öhlins on the rear shocks but noting on the front… Showas do their job pretty well, but they’re no Öhlins. Especially since you have Öhlins on the back… why?

    Although I like and dislike it at the same time. I would like to see the actual bike to get a better opinion.
