Devonne Duerbaum, 22, a college student from Hollywood, Fla., on her 2009 Ducati Monster 696, as told to A.J. Baime.

My father has been taking me to motorcycle races since I was young, so I grew up around bikes. He always had Ducatis—which are beautifully designed Italian motorcycles. When I turned 16, I wanted one, but he wanted me to wait. Two years later, I graduated high school, took a motorcycle class and got my license. I came home one day and he said, "Hey, let me show you something."

(In Italian - Translated by Google)We will show you the first pictures of the new Monster. Disguised and covered with adhesive strips, still leaves a glimpse truly monstrous forms. There is so much Diavel and a nice liquid-cooled desmo

Images are trying to hide as much as possible, but it is easy to believe that the new Monster pushed by the liquid-cooled engine will see the birth within the next two years. The prototype is in fact at an advanced stage of development, not too far from its industrialization. The liquid-cooled engine is not new on the Monster . He made his debut in 2001 on the peppery version S4 equipped with the 916 engine with 104 horsepower. In 2003 came the S4R 113 horsepower, which rose to over 130 in 2006 (998 engine).The following year he touched the beautiful S4RS inspire its monsteristi around the world: the power did not change, but came Ohlins suspension and radial calipers. Since 2008, the Monster range has always been combined with the Desmo air-cooled engines . It was a choice essentially commercial , a version with a more powerful engine, liquid-cooled, would surely have cannibalized another bike Ducati branded , the Streetfighter. latter, unlike the glorious Monster S4 and S4RS, never did really break the heart of Ducati. No wonder then the move today for the Borgo Panigale.

20 years. Ponder that. The only motorcycles that have been in production that long are class defining, life changing machines. Sportster. Bonneville. Goldwing. Motorcycles that redefined riding and how we did it. And now the Ducati Monster is among them. Clearly something needed to happen that was a proper tip of the hat to a motorcycle like that so we decided to do what it does best, we just went for a ride. 
And what a ride it was, a three day road trip from Newport Beach to Carmel for the Quail Motorcycle Gathering. Along the way there were stops at Ducati Newport, Ducati Santa Barbara, Morro Bay, Big Sur and even a couple laps of Laguna Seca. Great roads, people food and riding all ending at the best motorcycle show America has to offer. Epic!

Ducati Monster 1100R by Arrick Maurice | motorivista.com

Ducati Monster 1100R by Arrick Maurice | motorivista.com | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
What would be the most desirable iconic naked sportbike ? Answer to that would be the Ducati Monster, the aesthetic appeal and structural efficiency is what made this bike iconic.


While most drawn to the Ducati Monster for its raw beauty and performance, many consider it a blank canvas, perfect for customization and personalization.
The feature of the day a Ducati Monster 1100R belongs to Arrick Maurice brand manager of Ducati’s North American market. Arrick’s custom Ducati Monster 1100R was a non-eligible entry for the 2011 Monster Challenge.

Ninester, a Mean, Customized Ducati Fighter | autoevolution | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
Here's one nice piece of news to the fans of customized fighters. Welcome the Ninester, stripped-down 2001 Ducati Monster, with aggressive and at the same time, flowing looks.

One of the nicest things about this Ducati is the fact the bike looks very clean and this adds major on the cool factor scale. The wiring has been cleverly and skillfully hidden under the wide Ducati 999 fuel tank, so there are no loose wires and cables.

No, I am not confused, but you may be just by looking at all these pictures and realizing that they are from 2 different custom Ducatis. These bikes with the overall same appearance and paint job are the work of Yuri Shif, for me Europe’s custom builder with the wildest/most elegant/most beautifully executed ideas. His motorcycle fantasies are infinite and you never know what’s coming next from this Russian/Belarus customizer....For the rest of this story click on the headline above

The Bike That Saved Ducati

The Bike That Saved Ducati | Desmopro News | Scoop.it
For the men who clack away on adding machines or toil in the virtual hell that is an Excel spreadsheet, one Ducati motorcycle stands far above the rest: the Monster


It’s customary to praise Ducati for developing the sexiest, best-performing, and most-memorable superbikes on the planet—iconic shapes like the 851 and its smooth brother, the 888; dramatic leaps from the mundane like the 916; radical departures from orthodoxy like the controversial 999; and in-your-face technological feats like the Panigale. To name just the more recent efforts. But Ducati is more than a purveyor of dream machines, it’s also a business. And for the men who clack away on adding machines or toil in the virtual hell that is an Excel spreadsheet, one Ducati motorcycle stands far above the rest: the Monster.

It's remarkable really. 20 years. I bought my first one in 1995 and I haven't been without one since. It remains my "go to" ride. Thanks Miguel...
