Rever Corsa, Christian Audigier team up to build the gaudiest ever Ducati Monster 1100

The Rever Corsa-Christian Audigier Monster 1100 is priced at US$55,000

Rever Corsa, in collaboration with fashion designer Christian Audigier, have prepared what’s possibly the gaudiest, flashiest Ducati Monster 1100 you’ll ever see. Apart from the airbrushed tigers and gold graphics (‘Hand laid, engine turned gold leaf and exclusive Christian Audigier artwork, according to Rever), the Monster has been lavished with Ohlins suspension at both ends, carbonfibre wheels, Rizoma controls, STM slipper clutch and a full Termignoni exhaust system.

Only 25 units of this model will be made (thank god!!), each of which will carry a price tag of US$55,000. Now, while we think this bike is just rubbish – Mr Audigier has butchered the perfectly beautiful Monster 1100 without mercy – what might be more useful is the Ducati 1198R Strada and Corsa machines on which Rever/ Audigier are now working. Apart from the usual Brembo, Ohlins and many other high-spec brand names, the 1198 will feature a Rotrex supercharger, which could make things interesting…
