An Italian Monster with strange chrome suits

This heavily modified Ducati Monster S4, which we saw on Motociclismo site is one of the Ferruccio Codutti work in 2008. He is an Italian aluminum craftsman master. This one-off special, commissioned by one of Codutti’s customers, and took about one full year to build it.

The Monster has been completely overhauled and we don’t know if we like the end result very much – it looks a bit awkward and unfinished. The front suspension, which looks like it’s been taken off a Vyrus 985, is much more interesting than the bike’s styling.

Codutti designed the front end entirely by himself, after studying other bikes with similar front ends and even the Elf Honda 500 GP racer! The Monster chassis has also been modified in order to work with the new front swingarm.

Because of the space needed by the front suspension, the original radiator had to be replaced with twin radiators placed under the engine. The custom-built exhaust comes from Mivv, while three-spoke wheels are Marvic items.

Can’t say we like the bike much – not to look at least. However, as an example of engineering diligence, Codutti’s modded Monster just might work… *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MOTOCICLISMO.IT | FASTER FASTER]
