The 2011 Monster Challenge is open to all 2008 and newer Ducati Monster owners, giving them the chance to share their customized bikes. Monster owners can submit their entries online from May 11 to July 15 in either the amateur or professional category. Entries will be posted online for voting by members of the Ducati Community website.
The top two vote-getters in the amateur and professional categories will be displayed at the Ducati Island at the 2011 Indianapolis Grand Prix. Attendees at the Indianapolis Grand Prix will then vote on who gets the grand prize: a weeklong trip for two to the Ducati factory in Bologna, Italy.
“The Monster is Ducati’s best-selling line of motorcycles and with thousands of Ducati Monster owners across the nation, the competition is sure to be impressive,” says Dominique Cheraki, recently appointed general manager of Ducati North America. “As the most iconic ‘naked’ motorcycle of all time, Monster owners in the U.S. have particularly taken to personalizing these bikes which is already evident on our new Ducati Community social media site. We are looking forward to seeing the variety of personalization and talent that is revealed by this competition.”
