Rare chance to snap up mighty Monster

Foggy DucatiA very special Ducati has come onto the pre-loved market. Very special indeed.

Launched some 21 years ago to mark one of motorbike racing’s true greats, this is one rare Monster of a machine.

Have you got the Foggiest what we’re talking about?


Back when the 2002 model-year rolled around, Ducati kicked off production of only 300 units of a limited edition Monster S4 Fogarty.

Obviously, this stunning rarity pays tribute to the WSBK racing legend Carl “Foggy” Fogarty, who’d dominated the series with Ducati during the nineties.

Even at first glance, the bike sets itself apart from anything else of the era.

Carbon fibre detailing abounds, with the cowls, engine casings, clutch covers, under-seat panels and that perfect bellypan.

Even the steering damper is made with the stuff.

The Temignoni exhaust system, with its kevlar sleeves, is the icing on the lightweight components cake.

Foggy is, of course, name-checked on the bodywork where those iconic eyes stare out from each side of the tank.

This in turn has a specific badge celebrating the rider and his achievements.

The windscreen cowl, naturally again made from carbon fibre, has some branding where Ducati have once more nodded their heads to Carl.

It’s complemented with a number 1 and representations of both the George Cross and Italian flags.

Built better

Upon closer inspection things just keep getting better. While it may not have been a WSB-winning machine, it was built like something that benefited from a raid on the race team’s parts box!

The bike sits on a set of USD Ohlins forks, with the rear end being sprung by Sachs. All are fully adjustable.

Both wheels are Marchesini affairs. The S4s brakes were made by Brembo.

The fuel injection system is a Marelli unit. It’s mapped to meet the requirements of that Termi exhaust system and get the best from it.

At the heart of the beast is a liquid-cooled 916 engine. This on its own is iconic. The L twin with its desmodromic valves was the same motor that powered Fogarty to so many podiums.

Some 92 Nm of torque and 110 BHP were the result. For a naked bike in 2002, this was quite the power output.

If you’re interested in owning one of the very few of these limited machines left in the world, you’ll currently find number 267 of those 300 taking pride of place in Megabikes ‘ showroom. It has less than 12,000 km on the clock. If you’re interested Ross is waiting for your call on 014784200.
