I took a little side trip to Soho last week to find the Diesel branded Ducati Monster 1100 EVO that I posted about a few weeks ago at the Soho Diesel store. It was well worth the trip. This thing is fantastic looking. It was autographed by Kentucky born 2006 MotoGP World Champion and Ducati factory rider Nicky Hayden and actor Adrien Brody (The Jacket, The Pianist). The bike will be on display throughout the country and then go into the private collection of it’s owner Renzo Rosso, the founder of Diesel.
I’ve got a thing for Ducati Monsters and this one is one great looking ride. The Monster Diesel is powered by the Desmodue Evoluzione engine which is the first two-valve Ducati to hit 100 hp. The “urban military chic” color scheme is different and ideal for urban areas. The locking rear cover actually hides a passenger seat. It is amazingly comfortable and ergonomically seems just perfect. Click here for the full specs. Below are some pics we snapped while we were there, enjoy.
