25 years of Monster

2018 marks the 25th birthday of the iconic Monster, and Ducati are keen to celebrate this landmark occasion with a whole programme of exciting events. The best part? You’re all invited to celebrate with us at Vindis Ducati as we make the most of this exciting opportunity for something a little bit special!

Back in 1992, Ducati showcased the Monster 900 at the ‘Intermot’ International Exhibition in Cologne, and in 1993 this iconic naked sports bike was launched to the market. The Monster 900 was a gamechanger, with the look of a café racer, a sports bike chassis and a sporty engine to match. March 5th saw 25 years to the day when the first Monster rolled off the production line in Bologna. In the 25 years since, the Monster has seen both devoted biking enthusiasts and new riders alike, and there are currently six versions of the Monster available. It’s only fitting that, as one of the most important bikes in Ducati’s history, the Monster gets the birthday celebrations it deserves.

On the afternoon of March 24th, a Monster rally (in both senses of the word) will culminate in a parade around the Paul Ricard circuit in Le Castellet, where Ducati are also attempting the world record for the most number of Monsters together at any one time. The event (part of the Sunday Ride Classic 2018) is available to all Monster owners around the world, and if you’d like to take part you’ll need to register at Ducati.fr and head to the track!

Should you prefer to take a trip to Italy, the Ducati Museum in Bologna will be displaying an immaculate, original 1993 Monster 900, kindly lent to the museum from a Ducati enthusiast and collector.

For celebrations a little closer to home, why not join the passionate team for a Monster Weekend at Ducati Cambridge or Peterborough on the 24th or 25th March, where we will be celebrating this milestone.
