This is the Ducati Manx by Rad Ducati, it’s based on a 2007, 800cc Monster but as you can see, it’s been fairly heavily tweaked. The primary changes to the bike are the new fuel tank and seat, both available in kit form as either glass fibre (€600) or carbon fibre (€800), they’re designed to bolt onto standard Ducati Monster models including the 620, 695, 1000 Ie, S4, S2R 80 and S2R 1000.
The fuel tank requires the stock upper hook, frame silent-blocks and fuel pump, while the seat bolts right onto the stock fittings and can even be installed/removed using the standard Ducati key. As you can see below, this kit drastically changes the appearance of the stock Monster – so much so that they look like totally different bikes.
