For 2015, the Ducati Monster family – which includes the Monster 1200 and Monster 821 – doubles in size with the addition of the Monster 821 Stripe and Monster 1200 Stripe, both introduced today at EICMA 2014.

Both Stripe models are distinguished by their red color scheme with a white stripe running down the middle, covering the front mudguard, fuel tank and passenger seat cover. For Monster 821 fans, the Stripe model also comes with a performance upgrade in the form of 43mm Kayaba inverted forks in front and Sachs shock in back. Both units are fully adjustable. The 1200 Stripe, meanwhile, receives a Ducati Performance undertail license plate holder and carbon belt covers.

    Ducati seems to be hiding the left side of bike.
    I don’t blame them. I’ve seen it elsewhere, and
    it is ugly. The radiator tubing is terrible.

    I really like that fact that it doesn’t need its first
    valve adjustment for 20K miles. That is quite impressive.

    But sheesh, what an ugly left side of the bike.

        lmao :) My pipes after 1500 k’s look like crap. They are marked all over the place. The finish is terrible. :(
