While its large-capacity sports models were grabbing the headlines by dominating the World Superbike Championship, it was the relatively humble Monster that was Ducati's real success story, selling worldwide by the container-load and thus ensuring the Italian company's survival. Designed by Miguel Angel Galluzzi and introduced in 1993, the Monster single-handedly kick-started the continuing revival of 'naked' motorcycles. The fact that it was achieved by raiding the parts bin and combining the major components of existing models, only serves to underline the brilliance of Galluzzi's original concept. Thus the first M900 version used the air-cooled, two-valves-per-cylinder engine of the 900 Supersport and the chassis of the 851/888 Superbike. A 600 Monster arrived in 1994 and Ducati has continued to ring the changes on the engine front as the range expanded to encompass a plethora of variants. It remains a cornerstone of the Ducati range to this day. Offered here is a Monster S4, a variant introduced for 2001, which used the water-cooled Desmoquattro engine (first seen in the 916 Superbike) and was basically the ST4 sports-tourer shorn of its bodywork. This example is finished in 'Senna' grey, a colour scheme first used on the limited-edition 916 Senna Superbike, produced in honour of the late Formula 1 World Champion. Currently displaying a total of only 9,201 kilometres (approximately 5,700 miles) on the odometer, the machine is described by the vendor as 'like new' and comes with Netherlands registration papers.
