Ducati Monster 1100 by Christian Audigier – Click above for high-res image gallery

Christian Audigier won't leave us alone. The fashion designer responsible for decking out all the celebs in Ed Hardy and Von Dutch gear has made a killing off his overpriced wears, but apparently unsatisfied with infection of Hollywood, he's turned to motor vehicles as his unfortunate canvas.

As if the tattoo'ed Lamborghini Murcielago which Audigier created with Edo Competition – which in turn spawned the Ferrari F430 Calavera imitator – wasn't enough, he's set upon another exquisite piece of Italian exotica to tarnish: the Ducati Monster. Starting with the 1100cc superbike, Audigier and his partners at Rever Corsa have laid down some sort of dragon-tiger thing over a particularly gaudy red and gold paint scheme. This limited edition crotch rocket commands a $55,000 price tag, proving once again that money and taste don't always go hand in hand.

      I'll pass on this styling. Give this bike a flat black paint job all around, & I'll bet it sells more than this design/scheme.

      It looks like someone ate a salmonella tainted Gold Leaf Lotus F-1 car from the sixties and promptly threw up several times, - this being one puddle of it........

      Great to see him "stike" again.

      Talk about a PIMP's bike.

      I actually like red and gold but this is just terrible. Not because of the color scheme but because the design is just random crap thrown together. It's schizophrenic and has ADHD all at once.

      Is this bike mechanically improved over the Stock Ducati? So, he is no better than that pompous ass Castro of Unique Autos? this is just paint and decals? This is auto news?

      somebody should create a custom bike like this based on the new yamaha v-max. That thing is a beast . . . 1800cc 200hp.
