Essential and contemporary design

The Monster Design

The iconic, timeless styling of the Monster enters a new era with an evolved, contemporary design. Retaining the spirit of 1993, the engine remains the undisputed star, always centre stage. Added to this is the unmistakable bison-back tank, the circular headlight recessed into the shoulders and the clean, streamlined tail. All in a more modern, sporty and technological guise, designed to enhance the personality of the bike.


Compact and clean

Viewed from above, the motorcycle’s curvaceous forms are on full display. The narrow seat stems from the powerful tank and widens towards the rear to link with the volume of the side panels, characteristic of a true sports bike.


Full LED headlight

The full LED headlight retains the iconic, circular Monster shape but is further emphasised and modernised with the incorporation of the LED Daytime Running Light (DRL) system. The structure of the headlight also evolves with a lens that fully integrates both the optical and electronic elements. Technical elements such as the fully visible central module and heat sink ensure a modern, technological look.


The classic bison-back tank

The tank is undoubtedly the icing on the cake. The curved, muscular ‘back’ typical of the Monster is sculpted with deep recesses for the knees and becomes wider in the shoulders as it extends towards the front wheel, its volume looming over the turn signals complete with dynamic sweeping technology that are integrated into the two lateral wings.


Rear frame

The short tail, simple yet sculpted, comprises a visible rear frame with both a structural and aesthetic function, in addition to two painted side panels inspired by the Panigale V4.

The details

The modern and sophisticated design is simple and highlights the distinctive traits of the Monster. While the front view of the bike is dominated by the iconic, circular full LED headlight, the rear end comprises a short but curvy tailpiece complete with two pained side panels inspired by the Panigale V4. In the centre, the unmistakeable Monster tank, curved and muscular. The Monster Plus version comes complete with top fairing and passenger seat cover.
