Description

When Ducati unleashed Galluzzi's Monster at the Cologne Show at the end of 1992, few expected it to become Ducati's 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 Monster's 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.

Review quote

plenty of useful information and even stuff I didn't know ... As usual with Ian's books, this one's a must have. Benzina A book specifically for the Monster series of Ducati does not exist in German so far and it is presumably not going to. After all, you can rely on [this] English-language work ... Detailed data boxes complete the textual information. The image quality is consistently good to very good www.sidecar-news.de Author Ian Falloon is the acknowledged master of this type of books and Italian bikes in general and the first edition was brilliant excellent, so by definition so is this latest work with extra pages covering the last three years evolution is equally so ... The quality and size of this hardback is the same and typical of all Veloce publications providing a fascinating guide through the maze of Monsters produced over the past 21 years. If you own one you cannot afford not to have this book on the shelf as a reference work, or if you just want to see what the attraction is for these models, then it is a great general read.
