I already talked a little about this Bike, but I thought I would say a little more.
It’s the new Ducati Monster 1200 being released next year. I’m pretty happy with the way it looks. Apparently so were a lot of Italians and Moto Journalists from around the world since it won Most Beautiful Bike of Show at the EICMA this year.
I really like the classic naked bike look, not sure why. It could be that it’s what my Father rode when I was little, or it happens to be the look of my first bike. What ever the reason is I’m now doubting my dream bike of the Hypermotard/strada. While this is a “bit” less practical it is much better looking. I’m just a fan of monsters in general. I mean this is my wall paper on my computer desk top:
Something about the exposed engine makes it seem much more powerful than a sport bike.
I just hope they take the 821cc engine from the new Hypermotard and put it in this bike. I might hurt myself running to the Ducati dealership if that were to happen.
