“There is no way to realize a good motorcycle if the proportions are wrong.” —Andrea Ferraresi
In the early 1990s, an emerging aesthetic demanded greater simplicity. Designer Miguel Galluzzi responded by eschewing bodywork and exposing the Monster’s viscera: the trellis frame, air-cooled V-twin, and bulging fuel tank. The design was heart-stopping. Ducati has built more than 290,000 Monsters, confirming that resurrecting the naked bike was a sound idea.
