Radical Ducati Monster S2R

Radical man, Radical.  If you don’t know Radical Ducati, you should get to know them.  They take the best street bikes out there and make them better.  How you ask?  Magic!

This Radical tuned Ducati is nicknamed ‘Rad to Hell’, and we agree – it is!  Starting with a Monster S2R 1000, they massage the engine with ported heads, improved breathing via racing-style filters, and a Wolfman exhaust system. The ECU is upgraded to an EVR item, and an EVR slipper clutch helps get the extra power to the ground.  The suspension was left mostly alone, just switching out the rear shock to an Öhlins unit.

The bodywork is Radical Ducati’s proprietary fiberglass Montjuich kit, with carbon fiber fenders front and back. The triple clamps, clipons and rearsets are all lightweight aftermarket items.  The rear subframe was also slightly modified.

So how did it turn out?  Look at the pictures and let us know what you think!
