“Urban military chic” is the design inspiration for this limited-edition Ducati Monster 1100 EVO, a collaboration between the Bologna bike-maker and Italian fashion brand Diesel. The Italian clothing house entered a sponsorship agreement with Ducati’s MotoGP race team in 2011, and this co-branded Monster is the first joint partnership product. Designed by Diesel founder Renzo Rosso with help from the Ducati Design Center, the military-inspired theme is manifested in Diesel Brave Green matte paint against blacked-out chassis and engine components, as well as a pleated saddle and slotted covers on the mufflers and gauge cluster.
