2025 Ducati Monster Senna

On May 1, 1994, at the San Marino Grand Prix, one of the most famous Formula 1 drivers, the Brazilian race driver Ayrton Senna, died. He started his career in 1984 as a driver for the Toleman team. In his short career, he achieved 41 victories, 3 championship titles, 80 podiums, 65 pole positions and 19 fastest laps. In his honor, motorcycle manufacturer Ducati produced a special edition version of the Monster, the Ducati Monster Senna.

Ducati and Senna have a long history with Claudio Castiglioni, who owned the company at the time, gifting the Brazilian with an 851 SP in 1990. Ayrton was also one of the first owners of the Monster 900 model and used it to arrive at the 1993 Monaco Grand Prix gala party.

The Ducati Monster Senna is decorated with a livery inspired by Senna’s helmet, with the colors of the Brazilian flag (yellow, green and blue). It is equipped with carbon fiber mufflers, aluminum footrests and special forged aluminum wheels. The seat is blue, while the 4.3-inch screen has a unique startup animation.

The motorcycle is powered by a Testastretta 937 cc twin-cylinder engine with 111 hp (82 kW) and 69 lb-ft (93 Nm) of torque. It got fully adjustable Öhlins suspension, Brembo braking system with yellow brake calipers, Termignoni Silencer, and forged aluminum wheels. It is equipped with a lithium-ion battery and carbon fenders, which makes it 4.5 kg lighter than the standard model.

Ducati will produce 341 examples, and this number marks Senna’s three championship titles and 41 career wins. The starting price is $25,000.
