Features

Engine

  • The new Monster 1200 family is powered by the second generation of Testastretta 11° DS engine, smoother and with dual spark plugs and a secondary air system. Dual Spark (DS) ignition uses two plugs per cylinder to ensure complete combustion in a very short time. A secondary air system similar to that of the 1199 Panigale has been introduced to optimise operation and reduce cyclic combustion variability without affecting emissions. A controlled flow of fresh air is supplied to the exhaust duct to enable complete oxidisation of hot unburnt gases, to effectively reduce hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide levels. The Testastretta 11° DS engine that equips the new Monster 1200 family is unique to those bikes, as its structure is engineered to be a structural element of the frame; moreover, the air intake and exhaust have been tuned to give increased torque at low-medium rpm (ducts, intake manifolds, throttle bodies and pipes have a smaller diameter to deliver an incredible torquey character). The 1200 cc Testatstretta 11° DS engine is available in two different power variants: the Monster 1200 delivers 99,3 kW (135 CV) of power @ 8.750 rpm and 118 Nm (12,0 kgm) of torque @ 7.250 rpm, while the Monster 1200 S features a dedicated RbW mapping allowing 106,6 kW (145 hp) of power @ 8,750 rpm and 124,5 Nm (91.8 lb-ft) of torque @ 7,250 rpm.

Power and torque

  • Thanks to a dedicated air intake and exhaust the second generation Testastretta 11° DS delivers engine power comparable to 3/4-cylinder engines, even higher for the "S" , and an incredibly torquey character that will be appreciated by the most demanding "Monsteristi" and sport riders; more than the 85% of the maximum torque is already available at 4,500 rpm. Both of the two Testastretta 11° DS versions offer a wide spread of torque, of course the "S" engine remains strong through a wider rev-range.

Exhaust system

  • The Testastretta 11° DS engine is coupled to an impressive side-mounted 2-1-2 staggered shotgun exhaust that makes no secret of the performance of which the new Monster 1200 is capable. The engine management system dedicates a lambda probe to each header, providing precise fueling, while the stylish cannon-style, vertically stacked silencers carry catalytic converters to provide Euro 3 conformity. An electronically controlled mid-section valve optimises exhaust pressure throughout the rev-range.

Slipper clutch

  • The transmission features an oil bath clutch with "slipper" function and super-light feel at the lever. Its design uses a progressive self-servo mechanism that presses the plates together when under drive from the engine, enabling the reduction of the clutch spring rates. This results in a much lighter clutch effort at the handlebar, ideal in stop-start traffic or during long journeys. When the drive force is reversed (over-run), the same mechanism reduces the pressure on the clutch plates, enabling them to provide a race-like "slipper" action, which reduces the destabilizing effect of the rear-end under aggressive down-shifting and provides a much smoother feeling when closing the throttle or down-shifting under normal riding conditions.

Service intervals

  • Careful engineering and top-quality materials achieved amazing results. Scheduled valve clearance adjustment is every 30,000 km, and the oil change interval is every 15,000 km, providing greater ease and lower cost of ownership. This was made possible also by the improved combustion efficiency and lower operating temperatures of the new Testastretta 11° DS engine

Ride-by-Wire

  • The Ride-by-Wire (RbW) system is an electronic interface between the Monster's twistgrip and engine, which configures an ideal power response depending on the riding mode selected. The twistgrip does not have a throttle cable connected directly to the throttle body butterflies, but instead delivers a signal to a control unit, which in turn operates an electronically controlled butterfly. The RbW system uses three different mappings to regulate power delivery: 135hp with a sports-type delivery 135hp with a progressive delivery suitable for touring 100hp with a progressive delivery for city use

Tailored ergonomics

  • The new Monster 1200 range features a totally redefined size, and ergonomics designed to offer "one-bike-in-the-garage" versatility. The new Monster size ensures ample accomodations even for a rider 185 cm tall and a passenger 175 cm tall, also allowing baggage to be loaded without compromises. The seat position is very comfortable, allowing long distance riding if desired; the riding position is upright thanks to a high handlebar fixed close to the rider; and a passenger seat with easily removed cover, low passenger footpegs, and integrated passenger handles welcome anyone the rider wishes to bring along.

Adjustable seat

  • The new Monster 1200 is equipped with an adjustable seat (± 25 mm) in order to best fit customer requirements all over the world. The standard seat height can be easily adjusted from the lower 785 mm position to 810 mm; further, two optional seats allow customers to lower the seat by an additional - 20 mm (765/790 mm) or even by - 40 mm (745/770 mm).

Sculptured fuel tank

  • The Monster's 17.5 L - 4.6 gallon (US) fuel tank represents an integral part of the bike's overall styling. The distinctive fuel tank in pure "Monster-style" helps create the unmistakable "powerful Monster silhouette", while its metal construction and well-sculpted knee panels add a solid feel to the Monster.

Racing-derived frame

  • The new Monster features a racing derived frame structure that uses the engine as a stressed element. This structure is composed by a compact Ducati trellis directly fixed to the cylinder heads and by the engine itself; the shock-absorber and the rear sub-frame are also connected to the engine. The sub-frame is a classic tubular layout, however, it is enhanced by a unique coupling between the tubes, plastics and tail light. This sophisticated frame structure is lightweight and stiff, allowing the Monster to achieve the lowest curb weight in its category (209Kg).

Single-sided swingarm

  • The Monster 1200 features a strong die-cast aluminium single-sided swingarm that ensures high rigidity, low weight, and excellent stability, providing also a technical and professional look.

Brembo brake system

  • The Monster 1200's front brakes use Brembo's Monobloc M4-32 callipers, which deliver high braking performance and are actuated by a radial pump with 9MP multi-calibration ABS as standard. The 4-piston, twin radially-mounted callipers grip two Ø 320 mm front discs, while a single Ø 240 mm disc on the rear is gripped by a two piston calliper, also by Brembo.

Suspension

  • The racing inspired chassis geometry is matched with Ø 43 mm fully adjustable upside-down forks, while the rear uses a preload-and-rebound adjustable Sachs mono-shock, fixed on one side to the vertical cylinder head and mounted on the opposite side to a strong Ducati single-sided swing-arm. This exemplary suspension maintains tyre contact and ensures feeling and finesse even under extreme riding conditions.
