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

The view from above highlights its sinewy shapes. The seat, narrow in the arch, feeds into the powerful tank and extends, towards the rear, to meet with the volume of the sporty side fairings.


Full LED headlight

The full LED headlight maintains the iconic Monster circular shape and is brought even more up to date with the bright signature of the DRL. The structure of the headlight evolves too, with a transparent cover that fully absorbs the optics and electronics. Technical elements such as the central unit and heat sink are fully visible and make for a modern, technological look.


The classic bison-back tank

The tank is the focal point of the motorcycle. The muscular curved back for which the Monster stands out, sculpted by the unmistakable deep hollows for the rider’s knees, evolves in terms of its powerful ‘shoulders’ that extend towards the front wheel and loom over the dynamic sweeping indicators integrated into the two lateral wings.


Rear frame

The short tail, clean but also sinewy and sculpted, comprises a visible rear subframe, which serves both a structural and aesthetic function, and 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 painted 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.
