Naked sport bikes – such as those belonging to the Ducati Monster family – hold a lot of appeal. The lack of bodywork means the engine and other functional bits are on display for all to see. Additionally, rider ergonomics tend to be less compromised, since the placements of the handlebars and pegs aren’t dictated by fairings or cladding.
But one of the upsides of a naked bike that not a whole lot of people seem to seize upon is that it’s a blank canvas. Just think of all the custom bodywork possibilities. Italian industrial designer Paolo Tesio certainly did; why else would he have released all these renderings of modified Ducati Monsters?
