The Ducati Monster Bible by Ian Falloon
When Ducati unleashed Galluzzis Monster at the Cologne Show at the end of 1992, few expected it to become Ducatis most successful model. Dramatically styled, minimalist in stature, yet bristling with innovative engineering, the 900 Monster created a new niche market. A multi-faceted machine, the Monster bridged the gap between racetrack oriented sports bikes and cruisers. Here was a naked motorcycle that was as much a performance machine as a cruiser. The Monsters radical styling has also been the inspiration for a large after-market industry, providing cosmetic and performance accessories, and with engine capacities ranging from 400 to 1100cc there really is a Monster for everyone. This book provides a guide through the maze of Monsters produced over the past 18 years. Features: * Full description of the model development * Analysis of the Monster by each Model year * All Monsters covered, from 600 to 1100cc * Unravels a myriad of different models and changes * Complete appendices of technical specifications.
