A total of 100 kits of the tuned up Ducati Monster 1100 motorcycle will be brought out by Vilner Crafts. This will be the second motorcycle which is tuned up by Vilners, the earlier being BMW F800 R. The tunes will include designs that will make the bike easily maneuverable and compact, specially in urban traffic conditions.
Inspiration for the new design is taken from clean body lines of the praying mantis while graceful designs have been adapted from the martial art Kung Fu. Specifications of the makeover include an aluminum holder at the front end of frame, new headlamps, seat designs and a 100mm shorter rear end.
A new paint job will include a unique Pearl White color which is not available on standard models. Two tone rims and 10 hp boost will ensure that output is enhanced from 99 hp to 109 hp. Pricing of the tuned up model is still a mystery but should be revealed soon. Vilner crew said, “the design team was inspired by the clean body lines of the praying mantis, and by its graceful movements, which was the basis of the martial art Kung Fu.”
