Ducati Monster Senna special edition unveiled

Ducati pays homage to Ayrton Senna by presenting a collector's limited edition Monster honouring the extraordinary career of the Brazilian racing driver and the legacy he left behind. The Monster Senna will be produced in just 341 units - a tribute to the legend. 3 is the number of World Titles won by Senna in Formula 1. 41 is the number of Grands Prix that Ayrton finished celebrating on the top step of the podium.

The livery of the motorcycle, created by the Centro Stile Ducati with the participation of Senna Brands, is inspired by the colour of the helmet that the Brazilian wore throughout his career.

The choice of the Monster as the model to create this limited edition is linked to the history of Ayrton, who was one of the very first owners of the Monster 900, which he used for moving around in Monte Carlo and on which he showed up at the gala evening of the 1993 Monaco F1 Grand Prix

Ducati has unveiled a special limited edition version of its Monster, called the 'Senna Edition'. As the name suggests, the Ducati Monster Senna Edition is based on F1 legend Ayrton Senna. The motorcycle features a number of exclusive updates, both mechanical and cosmetic, including a special colour scheme.

Starting off with the cosmetic updates, the Senna edition consists of Yellow, Green and Blue - the colours on the Brazilian flag as well as Senna's racing helmet. The wheel belly pan and brake calipers are in yellow, the seat is in blue while green is sprinkled around different bits of the body panels. The special edition Ducati Monster also has 'Senna' logo and the words 'Racing is in my blood' written on the rear of the motorcycle. Each motorcycle also comes with a numbered plaque on the handlebars, while owners will also get a specialised motorcycle cover.

Ducati has also made a few mechanical changes to the special edition motorcycle. The Senna edition weighs 4 kg less than the standard model. The bike features fully adjustable Ohlins suspensions at both the front and rear, forged aluminium wheels, carbon-fibre mudguards & engine guards, while the footpegs are made from billet aluminium. The engine though remains unchanged, using the same 937cc L-twin cylinder liquid-cooled unit. It produces 110 BHP and 93 Nm.

The Ducati Monster Senna Edition was launched to mark the 30th death anniversary of the F1 icon. The bike is priced at $25,000 in the US market.
