Nearly 30 years after the first Monster made its debut, the 350,000th Ducati Monster has rolled off the production line. The 350,00th model is the Ducati Monster 1200 S ‘Black on Black’ that Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali and Director of the Ducati Design Center Andrea Ferraresi have personally delivered to its owner, Sebastien Francois Yves Herve De Rose. The customer, who ordered the Monster 1200 S ‘Black on Black’ from the Ducati dealer in Milan, was invited to Borgo Panigale for the occasion.
The 350,000th Ducati Monster was customized with a plate with the number 350,000 and was delivered to the owner accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Ducati CEO Claudio Domenicali and artist Angelo Amato’s sketch of the Monster signed by the designer. Being the longest serving motorcycle in the Ducati series, the Monster is the best selling Ducati model of all time. In 1992, with the launch of the M900, the first Monster ever, the first Ducati Monster was made, a naked bike with a superbike frame stripped off all elements that are not appropriate for road use.
The next generation of the Ducati Monster, which is scheduled to be released in April 2021, was unveiled to the public by the Italian brand on December 2, 2020. The new Monster has evolved and taken a sleek, sporty, stylish and technical path, influenced by the original Ducati Monster of 1992, with a frame derived from the superbike and high-performance engine for road use. The new Monster uses an Aluminium frame, unlike previous versions of the Monster, which features the trademark exposed steel trellis frame, and is also considerably lighter. Ducati has done away with the Monster 797 and Monster 821 for 2021, offering the Monster 1200 instead.
