Preview of the Ducati Monster 1100

10/22/2008 @ 9:58 pm, by Jensen Beeler1 COMMENT

The Monster saved Ducati from the brink of bankruptcy and has become the bread winner in Bologna, accounting for more than half of Ducati’s sales worldwide. With the advent of the 1098 series replacing the 999, it was only a matter of time before the Monster got a similar displacement increase. That matter time, is of course…now. 

Ducati has given a preview of the new Monster in Cologne, price and time of release still to be determined, but Feburary 2009 is likely.

More pictures and specs after the jump.
