Ducatis are one of those bikes that you can’t imagine could get any better than they come from the factory floor. Italian automotive designer Paolo Tesio is proof that these things can get more badass, showcasing his customization skills with this Ducati Monster MS4R.

At first glance, this thing looks like it’s been re-worked from top to bottom, but that’s not the case. Based on a 2003 Ducati SR4, the design for the bike was completely mocked up in CAD before applying any changes to the physical vehicle. The updates includes a new seat, 43mm adjustable Showa front suspension, and a modified rear subframe. The 2-wheeler is still equipped with the 996 cc motor, a setup that’s good for 115 horsepower – a hefty amount for this 399 pound street bike.
