Ducati has announced a limited edition 2023 Monster 30th Anniversario, marking an exceptional milestone for the renowned Bologna brand, paying tribute to the original Monster that changed the course of Ducati’s history back in 1993.
- the limited run Monster is to pay homage to the model iconic introduction back in 1993.
- the 30th Anniversario is fitted with Ohlins suspension and Termignoni full-system exhaust.
With the first Monster’s groundbreaking debut, Ducati showcased its ingenuity by fitting a slightly aged L-twin t-valve engine into a fresh frame, accompanied by flat bars, creating a one-of-a-kind machine.
The gamble paid off, captivating the hearts of enthusiasts and winning accolades from the press. Now, three decades later, the 30th Anniversario emerges as a collectors’ dream, preserving the bike’s iconic DNA and exhilarating character while offering enthusiasts a limited opportunity to own a piece of motorcycling history.
