This Custom Ducati Monster Moto Is An Exercise In Clean Cafe Racer Design

To this day, the Monster is widely considered to be the bike that saved Ducati from an early demise, for at the time of its debut in 1993, the brand was struggling financially and on the brink of going belly-up. However, that all changed when a last-minute decision placed the Italian marque’s badge on what was set to be a Cagiva.

Given that today’s aftermarket motorcycle scene is largely dominated by BMW airheads and Honda CBs, Monster customs are a rare thing indeed. And it’s a shame because, as evidenced by SR Corse’s 2007 SR4S build, they’ve got all the makings of a quality cafe. Designed to be as classic in style as it is modern in performance, it’s been fully outfitted with top-shelf parts to make the most of its 130hp 998cc L-twin. So, in addition to a fiberglass tank and a handcrafted aluminum tail, SR Course has also given it a complete engine rebuild (with a race-spec slipper clutch), a bespoke 2-into-2 exhaust, as well as a Hyperpro steering damper and some of Motogadget’s premium electrical components. Finished in metallic grey and candy red, it looks just as good as it ought to ride. Click the link below for more.
