Ducati Design by Fashion Icon Christian Audigier

A little news from the states that concerns one of Italy's finest. French fashion designer, Christian Audigier, announced plans back in November to create a line of customized vehicles inspired by first-class fashion (Ed Hardy) and jet-set lifestyle under the banner of CA Motoring based in New York. While the flagship of his offerings is a bloated SUV, his latest offering merits space in these pages.

Christian has teamed up with Rever Corsa, a full spectrum motorcycle shop and noteworthy developer of 'advanced motorsport solutions' located in Austin, Texas. The Ducati Monster 1100 they've put together brings the signature Ed Hardy inspired graphics to motorcycle art with its vibrant and colorful tattoo-inspired design. The tattooed art is a mixture of airbrush and vinyl. The gas tank features a detailed gold leaf that has been carefully laid and then brushed to give it a distinctive “fish scale” look. “The Monster platform has been used extensively as a platform for personalization so naturally Ducati was excited to see what a fashion icon like Christian Audigier could do with the bike,” said Michael Lock, CEO of Ducati North America. The limited edition motorcycle retails for $55,000. For more images, check out Rever Corsa.
