Ducati 20th Anniversary Monster Bikes

 

Since its inception into Ducati’s fabled line-up of motorcycles in 1993, the Monster has been the Italian company’s best bike. Throughout the 20 years of its existence, the Monster has been produced in a number of iterations, from a 400cc to the current 1100cc versions of the air-cooled desmodromic 90deg V-twin, all bolted on to a trellis frame and top-spec suspension components. Most of the Monster’s appeal stems from its Italianate styling, and with the added dash of real-world usability that it offered, it was a bike that enthusiasts all around the world adored and lusted after.

 

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Monster, Ducati has unveiled a special edition series of the line-up, all of which come in Ducati Red, featuring bronze highlights on the frame, front forks, discs and brake calipers, round rear-view mirrors, and with the Ducati logo in classic font. The anniversary editions are available in all the three variants, the 696, 796 and 1100evo.

 

Here are some pictures from the unveiling at Intermot 2012 in Cologne, Germany:
