This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Ducati Monster, one of the most important motorcycles in the Italian company’s lineup. To mark the occasion, Borgo Panigale produced the Ducati Monster 1200 25° Anniversario – a machine that is finally set to be in Ducati dealerships this month.
But, what if you wanted another historic paint job to celebrate this silver jubilee for the Monster? That is where this Ducati Monster 1200 Tricolore from Motovation finds its niche. We have posted photos of Motovation’s Tricolore work before, when the aftermarket house tarted up the Multistrada 1200 in an Italian flag livery, and the effect on the Monster is no less.
The Tricolore aesthetic is one of our more favorite schemes at Asphalt & Rubber, and it usually comes as a final goodbye to the model that wears it. Here with the Monster 1200, Motovation seems to be doing the same farewell, as we expect the Monster line to change for the 2020 model year.
An attractive use of bolt-on parts, Motovation is obviously trying to show off the brands that it carries with this bike build, but we think the bike is tastefully done…and we hear it’s a daily rider, which is even better.
Highlights include a full titanium exhaust from SC-Project, and OZ Racing’s forged aluminum GASS wheels, and carbon fiber body parts from FullSix, along with a bevy for parts from Rizoma, Ducabike, Competition Werkes, and many others.
Even better, we have a gallery of awesome photos of the Ducati Monster 1200 Tricolore, shot in the garage at the Circuit of the Americas. Enjoy!
