Following internet sales success of the MH900e and 996R, Ducati will sell 300 limited edition MS4 Fogarty Monsters through online only.
The order books will open in June, with deliveries starting shortly afterwards.
Several unique features distinguish the MS4 Fogarty from the standard Monster S4. The paintwork is designed by Aldo Drudi of Drudi Performance, the man who designed helmet paint schemes for riders like Mick Doohan and Max Biaggi as well as Formula One driver Eddie Irvine.
It features Foggy logos on the fuel tank and headlight fairing, as well as white number squares on the pillion seat cover. The seat itself is unique to the MS4 Fogarty, featuring a two-tone design made in special non-slip material. To give the bike even more racing links, the Ducati Corse shield appears in the front mudguard.
An entirely new set of carbon-fibre add-ons has been designed for the MS4 Fogarty: carbon radiator cowls, bellypan and two carbon-fibre air scoops.
Although the bike will be supplied with a standard 996cc S4 engine, the firm expects most buyers to opt for the optional tuning package shown in the pictures. This includes race-only high-level Termignoni exhausts with oval carbon-fibre cans.
Along with remapped ignition and fuel injection, they boost power from the stock S4’s 101bhp at 8750rpm to 110bhp at a high 9750rpm.
The standard, 37-tooth rear sprocket is swapped for a bigger, 19-tooth version, too.
With extra performance and revised styling, Ducati could hardly leave the chassis alone. The forks have been given a titianium nitride coating to reduce friction, while the new steering damper should keep the front end under control.
For your cash, you also get front and rear paddock stands and a specially made bike cover – complete with Foggy’s staring eyes logo.
But there is a lot of cash involved. The MS4 Fogarty will cost 18,000 Euros, including delivery to any Ducati dealer in the world, when it goes on sale. That adds up to around £11,160 – compared to £7700 for a stock Monster S4.
