The iconic Ducati Monster has gone for some mechanical surgery and the result has proved to be simply incredible.
The credit for this ingenious facelift has to go to Italian automotive designer Paolo Tesio. He reworked the Monster, giving it a lot more aesthetic appeal and some nifty modifications. The rear subframe has been shortened and a whole seat unit has been masterfully constructed. He also fitted girder-style fork guards (created using resin moulds and fiberglass) that cover the Showa front suspension which incidentally is fully adjustable. The new handle bars add to the sheen of the machine.
A Ducati MH900 headlight and a smaller instrument cluster has been fitted to give rise to a much more enhanced nose-down stance. With a simple yet aggressive black and white colour scheme, this bike shrieks “urban maschismo”. The backbone is accentuated with the generous portions of solid colour. It was apparently a lengthy process putting this bike together. The bike first had to be designed on a 3D programme before the actual creation of the bike.
An underbelly style exhaust has been included, pleasantly eliminating the hefty stock mufflers. Other custom parts include a steering damper and low profile LED indicators. This Ducati Monster S4R Custom testifies that Tesio is a ninja in the bike realm.
