Ducati Monster C.N.C "Black Dogo"

Ennio Capasa’s “Black Dogo” Monster is Born

Ennio Capasa has designed the most powerful custom Monster ever, based on the Ducati S4RS.

Taking his inspiration from the American dirt-track bikes of the 1970s and 80s and their spectacular performance in rough conditions, Capasa has designed a completely unique motorcycle beast. Assisted by Simone Falcetta, a design specialist, and developed by NCR-Poggipolini, the premium builder of high performance Italian sport bikes, Capasa has inverted the typical design process. Here the designer has adapted to the off road what was originally a street bike. The new bike is perfect for the ultimate C’N’C voyage: “off the beaten track,” ready to tackle the toughest of roads.

The Black Dogo is like the Argentine Mastif, sinuous and powerful, light and tenacious. The front end of the bike is snub and aggressive, the back lean with a short, curved mudguard. The mufflers and seat are short and compact. The tank is covered by elephant leather and has elasticized bands to carry various objects and travel gear. The rear view mirrors have been substituted with video cameras and the instrument panel with a monitor: solutions up to now unavailable on a production motorcycle.

Unlike the Dogo, which is white, Capasa’s Ducati C’N’C Monster is black and metal. The fairing is matte black rubber and velvety to the touch. The black frame is bright and shiny. The headlights dark and opaque. The engine is particularly luminous. The tank’s elephant skin is black.

“I have always loved motorcycles and especially Ducatis. For this reason I began working on the Monster Dogo project right from the beginning of the C’N’C launch,” said Ennio Capasa. “My passion has led me to spend more and more time at the Ducati factory in Bologna where Ducati designs and builds its legendary sport motorcycles. Dreaming of building a Ducati C’N’C became somewhat of an obsession for me. A project that I viewed as a challenge and a privilege. Industrial design has always been central to my design interests and I think the results speak to this passion. The Black Dogo is a highly technological and futuristic motorcycle, a bike that I always craved. From the street to the off road, from the city to a dream vacation, aggressive, but sweet to ride… this is the bike I will ride for many years.”

“It is a great pleasure and true honour that a designer at the level of Ennio Capasa is inspired by our Monster S4RS,” commented Federico Minoli, President and CEO of Ducati. “It is testament to the passion and creativity that Ducati continues to enjoy in the worlds of fashion and design.”

Rice Monster! Why did someone have to mess with the M900? How can Ducati support that?
The M900 is one of my favourite bikes.

Look how low the oil-pan is AND the location of the oil cooler !!!!
OFF ROAD MY ARSE

It's about as much of an advance as the Hummer H3 was to off roading and about as useful

AND it's Ducati, do you REALLY want to ride it too far away from where the breakdown recovery track can get ???

If you knew how far you can go on a Vespa, you wouldn't be saying those things about the Ducati. And classic Vespas are record brakers in what comes to break-down-per-mile.

If that's off-road, so is my MX-5.
