Like Most Things Italian, Even Monsters Are Hot.

Many of you may not know this, but more than just Apple computers are announced in Cupertino, California. And for some of you, this might be the sexier beast. It definitely is for me regardless of my affinity for both Apple devices and four wheeled contrivances.

Recently, Ducati announced the 2009 Ducati Monster 1100 and 1110 S. Two motorcycles worth a few moments of your time, and dollars.

Both are new to the lineup of Ducati Monster series – unique lightweight motorcycles with power, design, and painfully gorgeous Italian looks. On the 1100 S you’ll find components like Ohlins 43mm titanium nitride forks and rear shock absorbers, carbon fiber cam belt covers, and unique gold five spoke wheels. Both are outfitted with removable single seat covers, micro-bikini fairings, and a signature 95 horsepower (79.5 lb ft torque) Ducati 1100cc Desmodromic twin-cylinder engine. Bella.

Cost: $11,995 @ Ducati
