Recently, Radical Ducati have shared the pictures of a new BMW based build with a bold name "Interceptor". This, as they say, was "a joint venture between Radical Ducati and Max Boxer". The bike's built around modified and reinforced BMW R80 ST frame and powered by R100 engine.
A paralever 17" rear wheel has been modified to fit a monolever swingarm with an R100RS bevel box. The frame was raised up to ensure a better ground clearance.
The engine comes with a pair of Dell’Orto PHM 40 carbs, equipped with MWR air filter pods. To provide some more nimbleness and make it a pure racing bike, the guys performed a gearbox revision and made the required racing adjustments.
The front end comes mostly from Ducati: Ducati Sport Classic fork, Ducati Monster yokes, Ducati Sport Classic spoked 17" front wheel with Monster 900 rotors. Master cylinder and calipers are from Monster 900 and Classic Sport respectively. The front wheel's covered by carbon fiber RAD fender.
A modified bulky Laverda fuel tank is continued by reworked carbon fiber RAD 02 Montjuich solo seat. Pantahstica front fairing, with the cuts for Tomaselli clip-ons, was mounted on the front. The bike has been fitted with SuperMario 2 in 1 exhaust system with the muffler peering under the seat.
The painting and the whole design of the "Intercepter" are just amazing. This is one stunning build. I'd give it the best marks.
