Originally designed as a parts-bin special penned by Miguel Galluzzi, the Ducati Monster is one of the Bologna firm’s most recognizable and iconic models of all time. Seldom does modifying the Italian naked yield positive results, though Dutch customs outfit, Moto Adonis undeniably has a winner on its hands with its latest work; a customized Monster S4R street-fighter known as the ‘DUC92.’
The stripped-back cafe-fighter sports a slick one-piece monocoque tank cover, side-panels, and tail section combo, along with girder-inspired fork covers housing vertical LED strips. The 113-horsepower, water-cooled, eight-valve Desmodromic engine — plucked from the WSBK title-winning 996 superbike — now spits burnt fumes from a bespoke two-into-one-into-two exhaust culminating in a pair of stacked, high-mount reverse cone mufflers from Moto Adonis’ side-brand, MAD Exhausts. The Roosendaal-based outfit also added a set of top-shelf spoked Kineo rims, Motone switchgear, an adjustable Wilbers mono-shock, upgraded petal rotors, an open clutch cover, and a smattering of trick Motogadget bits including an M-unit, bar-end LEDs, and a Motoscope Pro instrumentation unit sunken into a modified top triple.
