Ducati Celebrates Monster’s 25th Anniversary with Limited-Edition Model
The Ducati Monster is now 25 years old and to celebrate the anniversary of one of its popular models, the Italian motorcycle manufacturer has launched a limited-edition model for the market.
Produced in a limited edition of only 500, the Ducati Monster 1200 25° Anniversario features a three-color Italian flag livery on the nose fairing, tank and passenger seat cover, inspired by the Monster S4RS Testastretta Tricolorefrom 2008. The special color scheme partners with the seat and its embroidered 25th anniversary logo and is complemented by the gold-colored frame and distinctive Marchesini forged rims with gold-colored W spokes.
It also has a steel tube trellis frame and aluminum single-sided swinging arm combined with the fork with 48 mm diameter stems and a rear shock absorber, both by Öhlins and are fully adjustable. Its seat is also adjustable in height from 795 to 820 mm (31.30 to 32.28 in).
Each of the 500 units will have a plate with progressive numbering applied to the frame to identify its number in the series.
Powering the 25th anniversary model is a 1.2-liter engine that puts out 147 hp and 124 Nm of torque.
