Moto Grand Prix World Champion, Valentino Rossi, made an unusual gift to his mother, a Ducati Monster.
Most mothers would be in seventh heaven to receive a box of chocolates or some flowers, not to talk about jewelry, from their sons, but when your son is so famous in a motor sport, like Valentino Rossi, the saying “like mother, like son“, in this case, suits them perfectly.
Valentino Rossi’s mom, Stefy, as she is known in the Moto GP paddock, wished for a Ducati Monster 696 all her life, and her wish was fulfilled.
“I’ve dreamed of it all my life and now finally i have it. I told him over the years that if you ever go to Ducati, then you’ve got to get me a Ducati Monster”, said Stefania Rossi.
Rossi’s choice to sign with Ducati fulfilled his mother’s biggest dream, who also wanted to deny the rumor that Valentino will become “dad pilot”.
“We talked about this rumor at Mugello and wondered how these stories surface, since it’s not true”, said Stefy.
The Ducati Monster which Stefania Rossi received is the Rossi MotoGP Replica Monster 696, with Valentino’s yellow race number on the side of the gas tank, 46.
