How to ruin a Ducati Monster 1100

French fashion design guru Christian Audigier turns his hand to Ducati's Monster with questionable results

Christian Audigier's Ducati Monster 1100

Does it look better from the rear ... what do you think?

WE LIKE SPECIALS here at Visordown but this Ducati Monster 1100 by fashion designer Christian Audigier is way off the mark in our book.

Aside from the awful graphics, the spec isn't too bad, it features a single-sided swingarm, Ohlins front suspension, Ohlins TTX rear suspension, BST carbon fibre wheels, Rizoma controls, magnesium engine cases, performance cam shafts, an STM slipper clutch and a full Termignoni exhaust system. The power is boosted to around 110bhp, meaning the mighty Monster gets more stomp but we still can't get over those graphics.

It's produced by Ducati specialists Rever Corsa and will cost you £35,000 which is about £26,000 more than a standard Ducati Monster 1100.

But we'll forgive them for this bike, because our sources say they've got a supercharged 1198S on the way.
