FrontRunners: Get Naked
An aesthetic redesign, the Ducati Monster Anniversary Edition (www.ducati.com) celebrates two decades of the Italian manufacturer’s top model. The bike—known for its engine-baring design—features the chrome headlight and circular rearview mirrors of the original 1993 Monster. The anniversary styling also includes a circa-1993 Ducati logo, a Champagne-colored front fork, and a bronze trellis. These are available for all three Monster variations: the 696 (from $9,795), the 796 (from $10,995), and the 1100 Evo (from $12,495).
