I found this Ducati on tinterweb and I love it. Its RAD02 Pursang name hardly trips off the tongue, but the bike is a thing of beauty in the eyes of this beholder.

Based around a Multistrada 1100 engine, with Keihin FCR41 carbs, Ohlins front and rear suspension and the swinging arm off a Monster S2R all bolted onto a custom frame.

Just check out the exhaust, it's a work of art!

Ducati's look best with fairings. This one is fit but not sexy, it's like Jessica Ennis without skin.

Bit of a blingy hot rod made up of a bunch of speccy parts.

Put a round headlight on it and I'd ride it!

I like it .. I would agree to a head light change though

I "made" my own RAD using my 749 track bike as a base. We´ve managed to shed a lot of weight off the bike and the engine has had some work done to it. 

The looks are awesome and the sound from the 2 into 1 50-62-50mm exhaust with a Spark silencer is mind blowing.

Try one out, you´ll be surprised. Or buy mine

I like it and agree with you Kurt Lad
