The unmistakeable Monster design is truly iconic and means there is no limit to your enjoyment.
The performance and the fluidity of the new Testastretta 11 ° DS, the versatility of the three Riding Modes, and the comfort of the seat and adjustable passenger grab handles make the Monster 1200 the bike to accompany you on every occasion, and indulge your instincts in every situation . With the unmistakable design of an icon, Monster never limits the fun.
All the elements that created the Monster legend are evident at a glance: a powerful “Monster-fly-line”, round headlight flanked by the forks, solid and sculptural metal fuel tank, and the authentic “less is more” style concept that gives the perception of being in front of an engine, a chassis, a tank, a saddle; and nothing more.
Despite increased dimensions that offer unprecedented performance and versatility, the character of a sportbike is immediately evident in the Monster’s proportions. The tail is sharp (with the decisive contribution of the low-mounted license plate holder), the mass is visually loaded at the front, and the engine area appears compact even with its new water cooling thanks to the expertly integrated oil cooler, radiator, and water hoses; the engine is coupled to an impressive side-mounted staggered shotgun exhaust that makes no secret of the bike’s performance.
The new Monster 1200 visibly communicates sophistication, modernity and substance via advanced technical solutions and premium materials: the traditional Ducati trellis frame evolves to use a racing derived solution with the motor as a stressed element; the full TFT dashboard and front and rear lights underline the bike’s orientation toward the future; and the sculptural metal fuel tank in pure “Monster-style” along with brushed metallic components further increase its premium position.
The rear view of the bike has been designed keeping in mind the possibility to easily fix dedicated side panniers, so that the mounting system is perfectly integrated with the bike’s style when panniers are removed.
