And, then the lord said, Let there be strips!. The shortest way to give a new touch to a model line-up not going through a significant change for the new model year is to bring new set of graphics, some strips to the range and you are good to go.
Ducati knows it just well, and gone ahead to do just the same with the Monster line-up. Another “bold new graphics” model from Ducati, the Ducati Monster 821 Stripe and Ducati Monster 1200 S Stripe add exactly what the name implies, a racing stripe to the naked bike’s sweeping lines.
The double-white side-stripe is painted on the mudguard, fuel tank, passenger seat cover, and fairing/windscreen. Completing the look are carbon fiber belt covers, and a Ducati Performance license plate holder. Lovely.
No word on pricing or availability yet from Ducati USA. Existing Monster 821 and Monster 1200 owners can likely purchase the “Stripe” body panels as well from their local Ducati dealers, should they strike your fancy.
