” Breaking the mold” is essentially what custom motorcycle building is all about, but in the case of this particular bike it has a slightly different meaning. You see this custom BMW “R90” was built by a workshop who, by definition, wouldn’t traditionally work on a German made motorcycle. In fact they are by all accounts specialists in Italian 2 wheeled machines of the Ducati flavour. Today though that mold has been well and truly broken. This is the ‘Interceptor’ and it’s the latest build from Radical Ducati.
The Interceptor may be an unexpected development from Radical Ducati, but it certainly isn’t a disappointment. They’ve created a high performance machine using a potent mix of aftermarket and transplanted parts and given the bike the same striking appearance we’ve become accustomed to seeing the Radical team produce. But they didn’t do this all on their own. Being Ducati specialists means that the BMW’s engine isn’t something they aren’t accustomed to working on, so this bike features a tuned R100 engine built by BMW specialists Max Boxer. ”
