The Monster 1200 S will also remain available in traditional Ducati Red
Ducati announced a new colour scheme for the Monster 1200 S. The "Black on Black" livery with alternating gloss black and matt black parts. This means that the Monster 1200 S will have its place in the Ducati line-up, despite the upcoming launch of the more powerful Streetfighter.
The Monster 1200 is equipped with the Testastretta 11° DS engine, capable of delivering 147 hp at 9,250 rpm. The power is handled at all times by the Ride by Wire system and inertial platform, which provide ABS Cornering, Traction Control and Wheelie Control functions.
The exclusive S version features a 48 mm Öhlins fork and rear Öhlins monoshock, both fully adjustable. Superbike-style braking is provided by two 330 mm Brembo discs at the front working in concert with Brembo M50 monobloc calipers. The Monster 1200 S also features wheels with three Y-spokes, a carbon fibre front mudguard, a headlight characterised by the DRL (Daytime Running Light) and LED indicators. Completing the as-standard equipment is the up & down quickshifter.
The Monster 1200 S with the new "Black on Black" livery will be available at Ducati dealers from the end of September at a price of €17,390 ex-works (price refers to the Italian market).
