Ducati’s new Mega-Monster musclebike and rival to the Yamaha V-Max has been spotted testing on the roads around the Bologna factory.
The pictures were grabbed as two bikes were testing on the road and show a big muscle bike with twin rows of LED rear lights and twin side-mounted exhausts. The pictures first appeared on Italian website www.motoblog.it.
Little is known about the bike in terms of mechanical details but its clear this will be a high-powered V-twin using a Ducati trellis frame with a single sided swingarm to take on the Yamaha V-Max.
MCN was the first to scoop this bike last year in early stages of development but these shots show the bike is almost in finished form. We expect to see the bike later this year.
Hear in France and the uk muscle bikes are not massively popular, just wondering why Ducati thinks this bike will be a good idea. In France you very rarely see a B-King or V-Max, I've seen 1 MT0-1 in 4 years, also reports say that Ducati is having trouble selling the M1100, anyway, I'm sure it will look cool and sound great.
Dunno where Ducati wants to go with this bike, but, ...Personally, nice bike, but, not my style.
Stay with what you know, Monsters, SBKs, MTS, SF, HM, SC and maybe come back to ST line or SS line, but no cruiser

It looks like Ducati are preparing to launch the perfect tool for posing outside of the coffee shop with the Ducati Vyper / Power Cruiser / Mega Monster (forgive me, I just threw up in my mouth a little). Here are the latest carefully orchestrated and controlled leaked ‘spy shots’ from Motorcyclenews. Link
