A real Monster of a bike

Wed, 13 Jun 2012

The bike above was once a Ducati Monster S4. It was restyled by Italian custom builder Ferruccio Codutti who took a year crafting the look out for aluminium for one of his customers.

Ignoring the grotesque nose, Codutti's work is impressive as the front end was made by the man himself. He studied bikes with hub centre steering like Bimota's Tesi and the Elf Honda 500 to get it right. In order to accommodate the new front end Ferruccio modified the Monster's frame to fit in the swingarm and with a lack of room for the radiator, it was replaced with twin units underneath the engine.

The question is, has this 'special' Ducati Monster S4 overtaken the Morbidelli V8 as the ugliest bike of all time?
