The 350,000th Ducati Monster has rolled off the production line, almost 30 years after the first Monster made its debut.

The 350,000th bike was personalised with a plate bearing the number 350,000 and was delivered to the owner accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Claudio Domenicali and a sketch of the Monster signed by the designer Angelo Amato. The Monster is the largest selling Ducati model of all time, as well as the longest-serving motorcycle in the Ducati range. The first Ducati Monster was created in 1992, with the launch of the M900, the first Monster ever, a naked bike with a superbike chassis stripped off the fairings and all elements which are not required for road use.

On December 2, 2020, the Italian brand presented the new generation of the Ducati Monster to the public, which is expected to be launched in April 2021. Inspired by the original Ducati Monster from 1992, with a frame derived from the superbike and high-performance engine for road use, the new Monster has evolved and taken on a modern, sporty, elegant and technological direction. Unlike earlier iterations of the Monster, which features the trademark exposed steel trellis frame, the new Monster features an Aluminium frame, and is significantly lighter as well. For 2021, Ducati has done away with the Monster 797 and the Monster 821, instead offering the Monster 1200.
