2017 Ducati Monster 1200 - At Ducati Wolverhampton

The Ducati Monster 1200 inherits the true essence of the first Monster in its purest form. Going back to the first project born in 1993, the Monster 1200 is inspired by the original concept “sports naked bike' to ensure that despite its technological advances and modern upgrades, it remains unmistakably Monster.

From its volumes and silhouettes to the refined tank along with the new innovative headlights, all aspects remain faithful to the lines of the original Monster to create a package that sets a new benchmark in every way. Sporting a Euro 4 compliant, Testastretta 11˚ DS twin-cylinder engine, it distributes superb power delivery immediately from the bottom end all the way up, unleashing 150 hp and a maximum torque of 712.9kgm at 750 rpm, to ensure an adrenaline-pumping ride.

The advanced electronics package, descending from the 1299 Panigale adds to the flawless performance of the Monster 1200, guaranteeing relentless riding pleasure when tearing up the tracks.

For a more refined ride, why not check out the Monster 1200 S, equipped with additional extra's to ensure an even more thrilling experience. 

Ducati goes back to its Monster roots, but with a motorcycle that's new in both form and function.

When Ducati designers started working on the new Monster 1200, they drew their inspiration from the basics behind that ground-breaking 1993 model: the concept of a “sport naked bike”.

The Monster 1200 is packed with new design and content, but with true Ducati naked flair. Available also as a higher-performance S version, the Monster 1200 has a sleeker tank, a fully redesigned sports-style tail, an all-new technologically advanced headlight and a first-rate electronics package derived from the one on the 1299 Panigale.

The Monster 1200 is Monster through and through. Shaping, silhouettes, fuel tank and headlight are faithful to the lines of the bike that came out in 1993. The iconic, unmistakeable steel tank has once again been fitted with an attachment clip, just like the first Monster.

The Monster 1200 features the latest version of the Testastretta 11° DS engine, ensuring not just outstanding power and torque but also full, smooth power delivery right off the bottom end. When combined with an always-smooth, easy-to-handle throttle response, the result is pure riding enjoyment. The twin-cylinder Ducati power unit on the Monster 1200 delivers 150 hp at 9,250 rpm (15 hp more than the previous Monster 1200 and 5 hp more than the previous Monster 1200 S) and a maximum torque of 126.2 Nm at 7,750 rpm. Accurate Ride by Wire calibration gives the Monster 1200 extremely fluid performance, ensuring exciting, precision riding. Moreover, the new Monster 1200 meets strict EURO 4 standards.

The frame is a classic Ducati Trellis that employs the Testastretta as a stressed chassis element. Attached to the engine are the new, compact single-sided swingarm and the all-new die-cast aluminium rider pegs, separated from the passenger pegs.

A comprehensive electronics package with three different Riding Modes (Sport, Touring and Urban) includes the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) that feeds information to the Bosch Cornering ABS and Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) systems. Top-drawer electronics gives the Monster 1200 true Ducati sport naked performance, but in a way that makes it accessible to everyone, ensuring high levels of active safety at all times.

The exclusive Monster 1200 S sharpens that Monster sports performance to an even finer edge thanks to a 48 mm Öhlins fork and rear Öhlins monoshock, both fully adjustable. Awesome braking is provided by two 330 mm Brembo discs at the front working in concert with Brembo M50 monobloc calipers. Moreover, the Monster 1200 S features wheels with three Y-spokes featuring exclusive “S” graphics and a front carbon mudguard while the front headlight is characterised by the DRL (Daytime Running Light) system and LED - not bulb type - indicators.

The Monster 1200 is a perfectly balanced motorcycle that, thanks to engine, brakes, chassis set-up and electronics, provides ultimate riding pleasure. Its superb handling, power and torque guarantee unparalleled, uncompromising fun.
