Ducati has introduced a limited-edition motorcycle that celebrates the 30th anniversary of the Monster. With the very first iteration of the naked street bike debuting in 1993, the Monster has gone on to become one of the most important models for the iconic Italian manufacturer, selling more than 350,000 units over the last three decades. Called the Monster 30th Anniversario, the celebratory edition features a unique tri-color livery that combines the colors of the Italian flag. In addition to that, the limited-edition comes fitted with exclusive gold wheels and gets a special seat embroidered with a 30th-anniversary logo. The special anniversary emblem can also be found on the tank and tail, along with the numbered upper clamp.
Ducati claims the anniversary model weighs in at 405.7 pounds, which not only makes it almost 9 pounds lighter than the standard bike but also the lightest Monster ever produced by Ducati. The limited edition is equipped with a gold-colored Öhlins NIX30 fork along with a Termignoni exhaust and carbon-fiber mudguards. Furthermore, the 30° Anniversario also gets a steering damper and a windscreen, which are not offered as standard equipment on the standard Monster.
Other than that, the limited edition is identical to the regular model, which includes the 937cc Testatretta engine that produces an output of 111 hp and 69 lb-ft. of torque. In terms of the electronics package, it gets cornering ABS, traction control, wheelie control, launch control, and three ride modes. The 2024 Ducati Monster 30° Anniversario is limited to just 500 examples and is priced at $18,595, which is $3,000 more than the range-topping SP model.
