Publisher's Notes: Features • Full description of the model development • Analysis of the Monster by each Model year • All Monsters covered, from 600 to 1100cc • Unravels a myriad of different models and changes • Complete appendices of technical specifications Description When Ducati released the Monster in 1993 it created a new niche market for the naked motorcycle that continues today. Continual advancement over the past 18 years has enhanced the Monster’s ‘less-is-more’ philosophy, and Ducati has created Monsters to suit everyone, from entry-level 400s and 600s to Superbike-powered Testastrettas. All Monsters share the naked style that showcases the engine and chassis, while providing ergonomics suitable for cities or canyons. Synopsis When Ducati unleashed Galluzzi’s Monster at the Cologne Show at the end of 1992, few expected it to become Ducati’s most successful model. Dramatically styled, minimalist in stature, yet bristling with innovative engineering, the 900 Monster created a new niche market. A multi-faceted machine, the Monster bridged the gap between racetrack oriented sports bikes and cruisers. Here was a naked motorcycle that was as much a performance machine as a cruiser. The Monster’s radical styling has also been the inspiration for a large after-market industry, providing cosmetic and performance accessories, and with engine capacities ranging from 400 to 1100cc there really is a Monster for everyone. This book provides a guide through the maze of Monsters produced over the past 18 years.
