In 1992 Ducati unveiled a motorcycle that shocked the world. All that was superfluous was discarded. Monster designer Miguel Galluzzi said of the philosophy behind his creation: “All you need is a saddle, tank, engine, two wheels, and handlebars.”One of the most copied motorcycles of all time, the Monster immediately spawned legions of imitators – but imitation is, after all, is the highest form of flattery. For Ducati, the bike marked a return to the essential all-around motorcycles like the Marianna, Elite and Scrambler. But even this comparison does not quite do the Monster justice since the Monster is naked by choice rather than by custom.
A bit of history: The Cologne Motor Show, autumn 1992 – a mysterious Ducati prototype stands out among the new innovations on show. On display is the Monster 900, a model destined to take its rightful place in the history of international motorcycling.
Monstrously beautiful, it is a cocktail of exquisite Ducati components, including the trellis frame from the 851/888 series and the 904 cc air/oil cooled Pompone engine from the Supersport range.
