2018 Ducati Monster 1200 S
Better. Faster. Monster.
The new Monster 1200 fully embodies those values that have seen bikers’ hearts race for over 20 years. A sports icon that is totally renewed while staying faithful to the values that have made it unique: even more beautiful, even more technological, still unmistakeably Monster.
- 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.
- 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.
- Endless excitement: 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.
- S version: The exclusive S version further accentuates the sporting spirit of the Monster, thanks to the fully adjustable Öhlins suspension, racing braking system, 3-spoke Y rims with exclusive “S” graphics and carbon rear mudguard. The front headlight with DRL (Daytime Running Light) ensures the Monster 1200 S is always visible. Available in brand new Liquid Concrete Grey, a polished pastel grey with black frame and rims, sporty and elegant, as well as in classic Ducati Red with black rims.
