do not get overly excited cos’ the Ducati Monster Diesel Motorcycle is not a diesel powered Ducati but it is, in fact, the result of the marriage between Ducati and chic Italian fashion label, Diesel. technically, it is based on the standard Monster 1100 EVO and hence offers feature such as a 100 horsepower (73.5 kW) 1100cc twin-cylinder air-cooled L Desmodromic engine huddled within a tubular steel Trellis frame, Siemens electronic fuel injection system, six-speed gearbox, Marzocchi fully adjustable forks, 10-spoke light alloy wheels and among the many others. differentiating itself from the regular 1100 EVO, the Monster Diesel is treated to a military-inspired Diesel Brave Green matte paint job against a backdrop of black treatment that extends to its tubular frame, rims, engine covers, exhaust system and forks, and a touch of contrasting yellow reminds you of the bike’s sporty nature. apart from the military-chic paint job, this bike is also treated with new and dedicated parts, including its passenger seat cover, exhaust system heat shields, dashboard cover, that are specifically designed to further enhance the rugged feel of a military vehicle. the Ducati Monster Diesel Motorcycle is slated to be available from July with a price tag of €13,490 or about US$17,768. throttle past the jump for a few more look at this irresistible good looking two-wheeler.
