Ducati Launches Monster Diesel

We’ve been constantly reporting news about Italian bike – maker Ducati is all set to be sold off. We, at BikeAdvice have been providing live updates to the best possible extent. Now, let’s get off from that news for a while and get into the new launch which has recently been in the spotlight.
Ducati’s flagship collection is the Monster series which comprises of Monster 696, Monster795 and Monster796 and Monster1100 Evo. This series has been forced to enter a tie up with another Italian major when it comes to fashion apparels and accessories. These two leading brands together have launched the Ducati Monster Diesel collection.
The Diesel Style Team, under the guidance of Diesel founder Renzo Rosso, working closely with Ducati’s Design Centre, has brought a new “Urban Military Chic” interpretation to the iconic Ducati Monster 1100 EVO.
Braveness and uniqueness has been the key characteristics that’s been based on which this collection has been worked upon. The new and the exclusive Diesel Brave Green matte colour matches an all total black treatment for trellis frame which has been the highlight of the Monster and rims extended to engine covers, exhaust system and forks; while the front brake calipers in yellow are a nice sporty touch reminding the superior performance of the Monster 1100 EVO.
The matte green colour has become significantly attractive in the recent past and it has seen youth concentration to a greater extent all over the globe.
However far more than just an amazing colour makeover, The Monster Diesel broadcasts over 30 raw urban styling modifications that makes it audaciously unique, like its weapon-like exhaust and instrument cluster details.
The bike also boasts signature stripe stitched onto the vintage style leather upholstered seat in addition to laser – engraving the unmistakable “Mohican” logo into the new aluminum air intakes. The model’s exclusivity is further enhanced with a metal plaque attached to the re-shaped passenger seat cover and engraved with the owner’s name and individual motorcycle series number.
The details of this bike are made live on both Ducati’s website as well as Diesel’s homepage.
