Post-Sale Update: This Ducati Monster 1100 S is now marked as sold – final sale price unknown.
From a visceral standpoint, I believe the Monster has become worse with every generation (kind of like the new Mini Coopers, but that’s a story for another day). With that said, the new Ducati Monster 1100 S is still a fun bike that’s very impressive from a technical standpoint. Today I’ve got an example that’s customized like no other.
The Monster features an air-cooled engine that produces 95bhp and 79ft-lb of torque. The “S” designation means it comes with Ohlins suspension front and rear (which reviewers have surprisingly been disappointed with) as well as carbon fiber body in-fill body panels, timing belt covers, and a front mudguard, all of which saves about 2 pounds off the base Monster 1100. Frankly, the Aprilia Shiver or even the Buell XB12S gives you more for the money, but having “Ducati” on the tank is priceless for some riders.
This specific Ducati Monster 1100 S was featured in Cycle World magazine and has just over 2,000 miles. Obviously, it stands out due to the custom paint job, which includes simulated wood all over the place. I was at Del Amo Motorsports for something unrelated, and though I think the paint job is distracting enough that it seriously de-values this Monster, I thought my wonderful readers should see this odd bike.
