The guys from Radical Ducati have developed one of the most impressive bikes ever. It’s called the RAD 02 Corsa Evo and is a higher performance, track going version of the RAD 02 Corsa. The "02" moniker refers to the fact that the bike can be used both as a race or trackday bike.

The RAD 02 Corsa Evo eliminates the seat and the rear body found in the original motorcycle, and gets a unique composite part in their place. Radical has also changed the "old" rear subframe for one that is lighter and smaller. The bike also gets a custom 4.2 kg aluminum frame, subframe, and swingarm, as well as a lighter rear subframe and a redesigned front fairing.

The only thing the model has in common with the previous Corsa is the fuel tank which Radical Ducati says was too perfect to change. The RAD 02 is powered by an ST3 engine - the same three-valve desmo found in the sport touring model, but specifications have yet to be revealed.

I like what I see I would like to know how the engine and the bike would feel at the race track.

Just asking, is Radical Ducati in any way connected to Ducati the manufacturer? Nevertheless, whatever the case is, they still certainly did a great work on this one.

Wow! This RADO2 Corsa EVO really has something to tell. The external design is amazing plus the performance of a real Ducati, this bike is a monster.

The designs looks so obsolete. It was not so attractive. It would be better if they will improve the design and upgrade it’s performance and features. Nevertheless, it won’t hit in the car industry.

Well, I would agree that this one is indeed a radical build. But I have to say that I am not yet all that comfy with the kind of seat that they gave it. Nevertheless, it does have good performance numbers.
