It was in 1993 when Italian motorcycle brand Ducati had first introduced the Monster, the bike which is often credited for kicking off the naked motorcycle craze. In the last 25 years, the Ducati Monster has gone on to become one of the most iconic models of the Bologna-based manufacturer by selling over 325,000 units. To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Ducati has introduced a special edition version called the Monster 1200 25° Anniversario. Limited to only 500 examples, the 25th Anniversary boasts the best one could wish for on a naked sportbike. The motorcycle features an exclusive livery featuring the three colors of the Italian flag on the nose fairing, fuel tank and passenger seat cover. The special color scheme is inspired by the 2008 Monster S4RS Testastretta Tricolore.
Complementing the special color scheme are the gold colored frame and forged Marchesini wheels with W spokes. The frame also wears a plate sequentially numbered from 1 to 500, denoting the uniqueness on motorcycle. The special edition also comes with a long list of weight-saving carbon fiber components that are bespoke to it. The Monster 1200 25° Anniversario is powered by the Testastretta 11 DS L-twin motor that churns out 147 horsepower. The price has not been announced yet.
