A sports icon that is totally renewed while staying faithful to the values that have made it unique. Even more essential and technological, the Monster 1200 stands out for design and sporty soul.
A contemporary icon
The new Monster 1200 has been redesigned to make it more compact, slimmer and with sportier proportions. The lines and the volumes unmistakably recall the legendary Monster, reinterpreting it in a contemporary way. Moreover, the new Monster 1200 sees the return of the tank hook that was included on the first Monster designed by Miguel Galluzzi.
The engine, more powerful and full-bodied at every speed, the more compact dimensions, the revised chassis and the updated electronic equipment including the introduction of the Ducati Quick Shift as standard on the S version guarantee maximum riding enjoyment and, at the same time, maximum security.
Adapt it to your riding style
The pre-set Riding Modes allow the rider to optimise bike behaviour depending on riding style. Each of the three Riding Modes (Sport, Touring and Urban), is programmed to act on the electronic Ride-by-Wire (RbW) engine control system and on the ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Wheelie Control intervention levels.
The cutting-edge materials and technologies of the Ducati Testastretta 11° DS ensure particularly long maintenance intervals. With an oil change required every 15,000 km or 12 months and valve clearance check every 30,000 km, the values are of absolute reference for its category.
