In 1992, Ducati was a relatively small manufacturer known for its competent, though somewhat unconventional, sporting motorcycles. At the time, posters of the 916 were yet to adorn the bedroom walls of a generation of teenagers, Carl Fogarty had not yet given the marque four world championships, and the Desmosedici’s first MotoGP race was still a decade away. In September of that year, Ducati introduced the M900 at the Cologne Motor Show, unveiling a new design ethos that was culturally modish and quintessentially Italian. It would be perhaps more significant to the future direction of the marque than even its greatest racebikes.

The Monster , with more upright ergos reminiscent of the 750 GT from decades earlier, was a Ducati designed for the streets, not for the racetrack. Celebrating 25 years of gaming excitement, Red Lake Gaming Enterprises renews longstanding business relationship with Table Trac.

The machine was nicknamed “The Monster” because of its Frankenstein assemblage of parts: an air-cooled Desmodue engine from a 900 Supersport, a modified trellis frame from the 851/888 superbike, and an inverted fork from a 750 Supersport.

The Monster was penned by Miguel Galluzzi, the Argentinian designer who is also responsible for the looks of the iconic Ducati 900SS of the ’90s (he’s the current head of design at the Piaggio Advanced Design Center). Many credit the Monster as being the first “naked bike,” a somewhat dubious distinction given that performance motorcycles had been unfaired for decades. Still, in 1992, Ducati’s model range comprised only sportbikes, so the Monster is at least responsible for taking the company in a new direction in the Cagiva era and beyond.

  Big Star: The Original Bigfoot Stomps In to the SEMA Show! <p>The O.G. Bigfoot, a truck both timeless and wholly of its time.</p>Chandler had been futzing with his truck for the better part of a decade, gradually adding larger tires, higher lifts, and four-wheel steering to his growing behemoth. Bigfoot and its friendly rival, Everett Jasmer's USA-1, were featured in the 1981 comedy Take This Job and Shove It. Then Playskool went and burned the truck into the minds of schoolchildren in 1983, building a tough little battery-powered plastic toy that allowed a kid to learn about the wonders of transfer cases by slamming shift levers that protruded through the pickup’s roof.

In the 1996 book The Ducati Story, Ian Falloon says, “While the Monster has been undoubtedly successful in the short time it has been in production, it remains to be seen how long its appeal will last. Previous Ducatis that haven’t had a totally sporting focus have always suffered falling sales after a couple years.”

What Falloon couldn’t have predicted at the time was that the Monster would pave the way for modern Ducatis to be something other than superbikes. These days, Ducatis are power cruisers, ADV bikes, scramblers, and motards. Ducati has sold roughly 323,000 Monsters worldwide.

What I Wish I Knew When I Started Riding Motorcycles .
New riders have an idea of what motorcycling will be like. They are usually very wrong. Just about everyone who gets into motorcycling for sport or transport learns a few basic things early on. But lucky you, I’ve got the inside line. I wish I’d known a few things before I got into biking regularly, you can learn it here for free.Dress Warmer (Or Colder) Than You Think You Need ToMotorbikes don’t have climate control. You’re often stuck sweating like an asthmatic horse or freezing like a meat popsicle. I’ve learned the hard way to dress warmer, or, colder than I think you need to.
