Ducati Monster Senna Edition Revealed; Pays Tribute To F1 Legend Ayrton Senna

Formula 1 legend and sporting icon Ayrton Senna was one of the first owners of the Ducati Monster 900 when it was first launched in 1993 and marking the 30th anniversary of his passing, Ducati launched the limited edition 'Senna Monster' globally, whose manufacturing will be limited to 341 units only. The number "3" represents his F1 World Titles and ‘41’ represents the number of times he’d won an F1 race.

The Ducati Monster Senna gets a beautiful new color scheme which consists of yellow, green and blue, which are the colors of the Brazilian national flag and Senna racing helmets. The wheel tags, belly pan and brake calipers are done in yellow, the seat is done in blue and there are touches of green throughout. Each Monster Senna will have a numbered plate on the handlebars, as well as “Senna” logos and the phrase “Racing is in my blood” written at the rear of the motorcycle. All buyers will get a specialised motorcycle cover with the Monster Senna as well.

The Monster Senna is also about 4kg lighter than the standard Monster, with premium components such as the adjustable Ohlins steering damper, forged aluminum wheels and fenders and engine guards made from carbon fibre. The pedals are also made from billet aluminum. The Ohlins front and rear suspensions are also fully adjustable. The Monster Senna continues to have a 937cc liquid-cooled L-Twin engine that produces 110 PS at 9,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 93 Nm at 6,500 rpm.

This is not the first time that Ducati has launched a motorcycle in honor of Ayrton Senna. In 1994, the company launched a limited edition of the 'Senna 916' and all 300 units were sold out immediately after its launch. The motorcycle again went into production in 1997 and 1998, with all units selling off quickly. To mark the 20th anniversary of Senna's death, Ducati launched the Panigale 1199 S Senna of which only 161 models were manufactured.

The Ducati Senna Monster is priced at $25,000 in the US, which when converted to INR results in almost Rs. 21 lakh (ex-showroom). A tiny number of the 341 units may be allocated to India as well.
