Ducati Unveils 25th Anniversary ‘Monster’

Over 325,000 of Ducati Monsters have been made ever since 1993. It has now been 25 years since the mark 1 Monster was rolled out and to celebrate the occasion, Italian motorcycle manufacturer has built the limited edition Ducati Monster 1200 25° Anniversario.

Ducati Monster 1200 25° Anniversario will be limited to only 500 units. The limited edition motorcycle has been characterised by an exclusive livery featuring the three colours of the Italian flag on the nose fairing, fuel tank and passenger seat cover, inspired by the 2008 Monster S4RS Testastretta Tricolore.

The new paint job complements the prestige seat which is embroidered with the 25th-anniversary logo. The other distinguishing feature for the 1200 25° Anniversario is the gold coloured frame and forged Marchesini wheels with W spokes in the same colour.

Details machined from solid, such as the mirrors, frame plugs, handlebar end weights and the petrol cap will come as standard fittings. The articulated brake and clutch levers, as well as the plate holder, are also in aluminium, while the front and rear mudguards, the keyhole cover and the exhaust heat guard are in carbon fibre. The Monster 1200 25° Anniversario also comes with a bike cover, decorated with the particular logo of this special limited edition.

Powered by the latest evolution of the Testastretta 11° DS twin-cylinder engine that puts out 147hp at 9,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 124Nm at 7,750 rpm this naked bike can be ordered from September this year.

The Monster 1200 25° Anniversario is estimated at USD22,000
