The tranquillity of The Pearl of the Orient, Penang Island have taken by a Monster-ous Red Storm as hundreds of Ducati Monster owners united for the first Asia Ducati Monster Gathering during the weekend of 11th and 12th May. This incredible gathering was organized by the iconic Italian motorcycle brand, Ducati and is supported by Next Bike Sdn Bhd, a company under the national conglomerate NAZA Group of Companies and the sole importer and distributor for the Ducati brand in Malaysia.
Ducati APAC has organized this event in recognition and appreciation of the vast and ever-growing Ducati Monster family in Asia as well as to commemorate a significant milestone in Ducati history – the 20th Anniversary of the Ducati Monster! The Monster family reaches a milestone 20 years of production in 2013 and what better way to mark the occasion than to celebrate it with the Ducati Monster Gatherings.
This gathering in Malaysia is the first of its kind. A dedicated microsite has been launched recently on Ducati.com @ http://monstertales.ducati.
“Being an icon in the motorcycle world, means certainly evolution and loyalty to its original style at the same time: indeed the Monster has been renewed during the years, with new design and technologically advanced innovations and without losing its unique characteristics,” said Mr Pierfrancesco Scalzo, Commercial Director of Ducati Asia Pacific.
“The most exciting addition to the Monster family is the Ducati Monster 795 ABS which launched in Malaysia this February by Ducati Corse Moto GP Team. It is engineered with high attention to safety-conscious detail ensuring the Monster’s cult status remains as authentic as ever. Until to-date, there have been more than 250,000 units of Ducati Monster sold worldwide,” he added.
