The suspense is over! Ducati has just unveiled the 2019 limited edition Ducati Monster 1200cc 25° Anniversario. With a limited run of only 500 units, it will prove to be a hot prospect. The bike showcases Ducati’s best qualities and comes complete with a distinctive tricolour of red, white and green, signifying the Italian flag and special anniversary logos. The very limited edition Monster machine was recently presented to the public by Ducati’s MotoGP rider, Andrea Dovizioso and will be produced as a tribute to the legendary naked bike the company produced as far back as 1993.
To ensure its exclusivity even more, the latest and rarest monster model comes equipped with a series of unique, exclusive accessories and parts. They include the 25° Anniversario Italian flag livery with its gold colored frame and steel wheel rims. The premium seat is embroidered with the 25° logo and a limited edition serial number ending in 500 embossed on the frame. The wheels are forged Marchesini wheels with distinctive W spokes, and there is an Öhlins steering damper for better traction control. The finely articulated brake and clutch levers improve handling, and there is even an aluminium plate holder, and the 25° Anniversario bike cover is a nice touch to keep the machine safe from the elements.
Since its initial launch at the Cologne trade fair in 1992, the Ducati Monster has become a highly collectible and sought after speed bike with an iconic status. It is the definition of high performance with a stripped down machine. The 2019 Monster 25° Anniversario is an untamed beast even when at a standstill. The 1,202cc twin-cylinder Testastretta engine is the newest addition to the Monster line-up. The motor can produce 147 hp at 9,250rpm, with 124 Nm and a maximum torque reaching 7,750 rpm. That is pretty impressive stuff and gives you massive flexibility at lower speeds while easily accommodating endless surges of power at the mid-high RPM range. There are three different riding modes, Sport, Touring or Urban, so a comfortable ride is without question. Would you expect anything less from Ducati?
