    ABS Cornering
    An anti-lock braking system is a safety system that prevents a vehicle’s wheels from locking during heavy braking. Essentially, the ABS regulates the braking pressure on the wheel, allowing it to continuously have traction on the riding surface. There are different ABS intervention levels, depending on the selected Riding Mode.

Ayrton Senna and Ducati

Monster Senna is the latest chapter in the story that ties Ayrton Senna to the Borgo Panigale manufacturer. A relationship born on the racetrack and that continued even after the death of the unforgettable Brazilian driver.

United by racing.

The story that unites Ducati and Ayrton Senna began in the early 90s. Claudio

Castiglioni, the president of Ducati at that time, would often visit the Formula 1 circuits, where the Brazilian ace was setting the world alight with his talent and charisma.

Senna truly loved the world of motors. And after meeting with Castiglioni and becoming a personal friend, Senna also developed a passion for Ducati . He even received an 851 SP as a gift from the president in 1990 and one of the first red Monster bikes in 1993.

One day Castiglioni showed "Magic" a preview of what would be a revolutionary bike for Ducati and for the entire motorcycle industry: the Ducati 916. It was at that point that Senna decided the time had come to follow up on a project that the two had been cultivating for some time.

916 Senna: the most admired motorcycle, the best loved driver.

In March 1994, Ayrton Senna visited Ducati in Borgo Panigale to sign a contract that would result in the first motorcycle ever to bear his name: the Ducati 916 Senna.

A marriage with legendary connotations, between one of the most beautiful and desired motorcycles of the time and the most successful and best loved racer. It was Ayrton himself who chose the colour scheme, an anthracite grey base combined with the matte black of the lower fairings and a bright red that recalled the red of the "S” in the Senna logo.

The bike should have gone into production just a few weeks later, but Senna’s death on 1 May 1994 saw the project put on hold until the following winter, when it was presented at the Bologna Motorshow, in the presence of Ayrton’s sister Viviane, President of the Ayrton Senna Institute, and brother Leonardo.

The 300 units produced sold in a matter of days, which prompted Ducati and the Senna Foundation to produce two subsequent series, in 1997 and 1998. These limited runs of 300 units were again linked to important charitable initiatives just as the first had been, the motorcycles still a coveted collector's item even today.

His own Monster, to celebrate the legend.

The Monster Senna celebrates the immortality of the Brazilian driver, encapsulating those elements that made him such an iconic figure and capturing all the magic that continues to inspire and fascinate fans of both Ducati and this unforgettable champion. 

To mark the thirtieth anniversary of the loss of “Magic”, a special numbered and limited edition, which takes up the livery of Ayrton’s iconic helmet.
