Ducati Mega Monster – Update

More pictures of the Mega Monster are emerging, but this one profile pic is enough to know that its not going to be hideous. The its clear about the exhaust and single sided swing arm, and at least it looks pretty good. The ride angle itself looks comfortable and with a decently powerful engine, so I’m looking forward to more info.

Here is the previous post.

Now more details of this Mega Monster is coming out, and it keeps looking better and beter. With the Multistrada engine, trellis frame, and single sided swing arm this is a very good Ducati performance cruiser. With the Multistrada 1200cc v-twin engine we are talking about 150 bhp engine, and the rear tire looks massive at a about 240. That prototype picture looks hideous so I’m hoping that its just to throw people off and looks just as good as the paper. But its official the bike will be unveiled at the EICMA November 2010, which is only a few months away, hopefully it will be on sale right away.

Ducati – Mega Monster

Spy shots of the new Ducati power cruiser popping up all over the press, a machine targeting the Yamaha V-Max market. This is a new step for Ducati, there were rumors of a cruiser and some sketches that popped up last year but nothing materialized but now this a different story. Just as the campaign for the Multistrada with spy pictures and leaked images coming out over a few months, this tactic is done by Ducati’s marketing, just before the launch in EICMA 2010 in Milan.

What lends these pictures to being the work of Ducati are the photographs and the riders. As last time there is only one angle for the bike and very clear pictures, same as the last leaked pictures. Secondly the riders wearing full Ducati gear. What I find sneaky is that Ducati announced last year that they have no plans to make a cruiser style motorcycle, but the pictures say other wise and I would love to see this Ducati Power Cruiser. I like the single side swing arm, and I like the location of the exhaust, now lets hope for a good looking front.
