2017 Ducati Monster 1200 S

Better, Faster, Monster

The new Monster S 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 unmistakably Monster.

A forward-looking icon

With full, fluid power delivery at all speeds and maximum power of 150 hp guaranteed by the Testastretta 11° engine, the Monster 1200 offers the enjoyment and excitement of an authentic sports bike. Its muscular line, trellis frame and unmistakeable elements such as the tank and headlight confirm its status as a modern icon, ready to write the future of naked sportbikes.

A contemporary icon

The new Monster 1200 reinterprets and modernises the original concept of the naked sports bike. The tank fastener hook, the trellis frame with larger pipes for increased rigidity, and the classic round headlight, iconic but current and with DRL technology on the S version, all ensure it is unmistakeably, 100% Monster.

Compact and sporty

The new Monster 1200 expresses and updates the concept of the authentic naked sports bike, while retaining the shapes, tank and headlight of the bike created in 1993. The compact proportions and short, narrow rear end make it sporty, as do the new rider footpegs, separate from those of the passenger. A compact and muscular bike ready to offer pure enjoyment.

SPORTS ENJOYMENT

Pure riding enjoyment

A powerful, full engine, compact dimensions, an efficient chassis, and top of line electronic equipment all ensure maximum riding enjoyment and maximum safety.

Agile, sporty ergonomics

The short rear end, with its compact, narrow lines, supported by the steel trellis frame, bears the seat, height-adjustable with two positions (795 and 820mm), as well as the passenger footpegs, now separate from those of the rider. This new configuration gives the Monster 1200 a sporty line while also improving its ergonomics. The wheelbase and swingarm are shortened for maximum handling and speed during changes of direction.

Performance and safety

Advanced brakes and suspension, the Ducati Safety Pack with Ducati Traction Control, Ducati Wheelie Control, Bosch Cornering ABS and much more, for safe enjoyment with maximum control. The Ducati Safety Pack (Bosch Cornering ABS and Ducati Traction Control) and Ducati Wheelie Control that equip the Monster 1200 ensure that riding enjoyment is safe and comes with maximum control. The Brembo braking system, with M50 radial monoblock callipers on 330mm discs with the S version, ensures maximum riding precision and combines with latest-generation Bosch Cornering ABS. The suspension, with fully adjustable Öhlins fork and shock with the S version, makes for true sports riding.

CONTROL

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 three different settings, which can be further customised according to personal preference, allow a rider to have the ideal bike for any route, whether in city traffic or on out-of-town paths, perfect for expressing the real Monster instinct.

Controlled power

The Monster 1200, in both the standard and S version, is equipped with the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP) as standard, which, thanks to the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), integrates Bosch 9.1MP Cornering ABS, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC). An advanced electronics package that enhances performance and helps the rider to control the bike, thus increasing the level of safety on any route and with any level of grip.

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.

Power and torque always ready

The latest evolution of the Testastretta 11° DS generates power equal to that of a 3/4 cylinder engine and is able to achieve even greater performance. The engine in fact guarantees power delivery of 150 hp at 9250 rpm and an impressive torque curve that further increases riding enjoyment, generating maximum torque of 126.2 Nm at 7750 rpm. Attention has also been paid to improving engine response in terms of torque delivery at low speed and the modulated response of the engine to any action on the accelerator.
