Unmistakably Monster, aggressively racing. The Monster 1200 R makes an immediate impact with its sporty, compact and lightweight lines. The typical Monster design of the tank blends with the sporty lines of the rear section that, thanks also to the new compact, lightweight frame, immediately conveys an idea of power and dynamism.
With its 1200 cm3 Testastretta 11° DS twin-cylinder engine in the "R" version, the new Monster 1200 R takes the naked concept to the extreme. The new engine is in fact able to express its full potential with a full, fluid supply even at low speeds, perfect for riding on the road but also between the kerbs of the track.
The Monster 1200 R is equipped with fully adjustable suspension and shock, both by Öhlins. The braking system, produced by Brembo, sees two radially mounted Monobloc M50 callipers acting on two 330mm discs at the front; the same components as those on the 1299 Panigale sports bike.
All of Ducati's cutting-edge technology plays a part on the most exclusive model in the Monster family: Riding Modes, Ride by Wire system, TFT dashboard and much more.
High performance in maximum safety: the Monster 1200 R is also equipped with the Ducati Safety Pack as standard that, along with the ABS system and DTC (Ducati Traction Control), offer control in every riding situation.
The meticulous design and top-quality materials used for the Monster 1200 R have allowed amazing results to be achieved. Adjusting the valve clearance is scheduled for every 30,000 km and changing the oil every 15,000 km or every 12 months, increasing service intervals and cutting running costs.
