Happy Birthday Monster - Your Monster Wanted for the Monster Birthday Party at the NEC Show As you know, the Ducati Monster will be 20 years young next year and to celebrate this Ducati UK are creating a display of iconic Monsters from the past 20 years (20th Anniversary Monster will represent 2013) at the Motorcycle Live show at the NEC 24 Nov- 2 Dec.
Rob from UKMOC
has been searching through the UK Monster Club bikes to find some great examples but Ducati UK are still looking for the best in each of the classes to find the best representation of the iconic Monster. We would like to ask for your help to find the best Monsters in the UK amongst Club members!
Rob and Livio Lodi, curator of the Ducati Factory Museum, have created the wish list below and although there will be room for only 10 Monsters on the stand, we want them to be the best possible examples. Ducati UK are looking for bikes with a great story as well as great examples, with minimal changes from standard styling if possible... For instance, they have one Monster owned since new (was sourced by a (now) Ducati employee) and owner now works for a Ducati supplier so it’s all come full circle.... are there other stories out there? Do you have a Monster that Ducati UK can show?
Ducati UK will require the Monster’s at the Silverstone office in late November and they will be on display from 24 Nov till 2 Dec at the NEC. They will be under Ducati UK Insurance whilst in their care. Help will be given for transport costs, bikes will be professionally valeted and will NOT be sat on during the show.
For those bikes chosen to be on display they will be entered into a competition to win the loan of a Monster 20th Anniversary 796 for 3 months, 2nd and 3rd prizes will be Ducati Jackets.
All Monsters chosen will be given a Monster 20th Anniversary limited edition cover which will be used at the show and for the proud owner to take home with them. Two tickets to the Motorcycle Live show will also be given to each chosen owner so they can see their bike in pride of place.
The bikes we are looking for are as follows:
1993 Monster 900
1995 Monster 600
1996 Monster 750
1998 Monster Dark
1999 Monster Chromo
2001-2002 Monster 900ie
2001 Monster S4
2001 Monster S4 Foggy
2002-2006 Monster 620ie
2003 Monster 1000
2003-2006 Monster S4R 996
2005 on Monster S2R 800/1000
2008 Monster S4Rs Tricolore
2007 Monster 695
