First Look: 2009 Radical Ducati Hypermotard

First pics of the super-trick (and super expensive) carbon-clad Ducati Hypermotard

Tasty but expensive - the Radical Ducati Hypermotard

YOU'RE LOOKING at first pictures of the new Radical Ducati Hypermotard, seen here for the first time on any UK website.

The machine, built by Madrid-based bike building specialists Radical Ducati, features a wealth of hand-prepped carbon fibre parts, as well as top-notch suspension, uprated brakes and a carbon Termignoni end can.

Radical have also tweaked the standard bike's by using the headlight set-up from Yamaha's MT-03.

Other mods include: new handlebars, a black-painted frame (normally red) and hand-crafted rearsets.

An official retail price is yet to be announced but we reckon you'd be lucky to see much change from £15,000.
