Ducati Monster 1200 S & R


The authentic Naked Sports Bike is even more powerful now. The Testastretta engine delivers a 150 hp with a torque of 126 Nm. Even at low speed, the torque curve should be impressive, due to the new compression ratio and throttle body.

The bike is fully Euro-4 homologated and its valves needs to be checked only every 30,000 km.

Chassis and brakes

The kerb weight of 209 kg and the compact wheelbase, combined with the Kayaba fork at the front and Sachs shock on the rear, will increase the handling of the Ducati. The Monster R has a fully adjustable Öhlins suspension.

The Monster 1200 S is equipped with 10-spoke rims, while the R-model has 3-spoke Y-rims.

Also there is a difference between the Brakes. The standard Monster uses Brembo M4.32 monoblock calipers and 320 mm discs for the front. The Monster R comes with the M50 and 330 mm discs.

The Monster 1200 is also equipped with the Ducati Safety Pack, which includes the Bosch cornering ABS, the Ducati traction control and Ducati Wheelie control.

The TFT instrumentation is designed to show informations, relating to the three riding modes.

The display can be personalised and the viewing mode can always be selected independently of the selected Riding Mode.
