The Ducati 999, built from 2003-2006, boasted a liquid-cooled L-twin Desmodromic engine capable of 138 horsepower and 80 lb-ft of torque. While the 999’s styling — which was the work of South African designer Pierre Terblanche — was highly controversial, the bike’s performance and results were undeniable. The 999 won three championships in World Superbike and the motorcycling press gushed over the machine:
“Simply the best V-Twin on the planet.” — MCN
Enter Pepo Rosell, the “extreme bike constructor” behind Spain’s XTR Pepo — one of the world’s most renowned customizers of Ducati machines. Pepo cut his teeth with his previous workshop, Radical Ducati, whose RAD and MANX are still fabricated and sold through French company Ducatiamo.
While Pepo has since opened his doors to a wide range of other makes, he still has a soft spot for red-hot twins from Bologna. This particular 999 — a 2004 model — has been transformed from a superbike into a race-inspired, street-legal rocket with Castrol livery and no shortage of high-performance components.
This build features a full array of parts from RAD and XTR, including everything from the RAD fuel tank, solo seat, and belly pan to the XTR clip-ons, fenders, CNC-machined adjustable rear sets, and much more.
