DUCATI MONSTER 1200 NATIONAL TOUR
More Ducati fun tonight… as I had the opportunity to photo the Ducati Monster 1200 National Tour when it rolled in to the local dealership. This is a factory tour that is going around the USA and giving riders a sneak peek at the bike before it is “officially” launched in March.
The 2014 Monster is completely re-designed this year and although it maintains the traditional Monster look, it has quite a few design changes/improvements. Right off the bat, you will notice that the motor now acts as part of the frame. (Look closely… the tubular steel trellis frame attaches to the cylinders.) There’s also a new power plant, a Traction Control system with eight levels to choose from, and even an adjustable height seat!
I might be one of the luckiest photographers on the planet. Yeah, it’s work… but what a great time… and a great subject to photograph.
