Minichamps MIN122120121 2001 Ducati Monster S4 Anthracite with Red Wheels (1:12 Scale) "I get a call from Ducati asking if I was interested in the ride. I didn't need asking twice...!"
- Troy Bayliss, after being approached by the Ducati Factory to replace the injured "King Carl" Fogarty

The Monster (informally called Il Mostro in Italian) is a motorcycle designed by Miguel Angel Galluzzi and produced by Ducati Motor Holdings in Bologna, Italy since 1993. It is of the naked bike style, which is characterized by a sport bike with a fully exposed engine and frame. In 2005, Monster sales account for over half of Ducati's worldwide sales. Ducati motorcycles are best-known for their L-twin Desmodromic valve engines (also known as a 90° V-Twin) and tubular steel trellis chassis, both features designed by the late Fabio Taglioni (1920-2001).

Ducati introduced three Monster models in its first generation: M600, M750 and M900 (the numbers denote engine sizes). The first, the M900, was shipped in 1993; the M600 shipped in 1994, and finally the M750 arrived in 1996. The bike remained relatively unchanged until 2000, when Ducati added fuel injection to the M900 model. Perhaps more importantly, in 2001 Ducati also introduced the S4, which added the liquid-cooled 4-valve Superbike engine to the stable. Other technical changes that year included semi-floating front disc brakes with Brembo four-piston calipers, lighter Brembo wheels as well as 43 mm Showa inverted forks. 2002 saw the introdution of the limited, 300 edition, high-spec, S4 Fogarty.

Definitely a Collectible NOT A TOY!!! August 22, 2012
Reviewer: Joseph B. from Northwest Indiana USA  
MINICHAMPS hit the nail on the head here and would definitely be the BEST PICK if you want a MUSEUM QUALITY 1:12 REPLICA of this motorcycle.  Maisto and New Ray versions, though unarguably cheaper, are unarguably TOYS in comparison as well.

QUICK DETAILING:

- Kick stand has a spring retainer on it, just like the one found on the real thing.

- Rear suspension works, compresses when pressure is applied -- so do the front forks.

- The speed and tacho is situated with  depth and is covered with clear plastic lenses, giving it a three dimensional impression and realism just like the 1:1

- Carbon fiber trim and decals on areas where they should be found.

- Accurate, to-scale brake and clutch lining.

- Textured saddle/seat which has a"grippy" feel on them, just like the real thing.

Save your money from those toys and get yourself the real deal.  Its more expensive but it'll leave the MOST LASTING IMPRESSION - it's worth every buck.
