2016 Ducati Monster 1200
The 2016 Ducati Monster 1200 has been given the new 1198cc Testastretta 11° DS engine with Electronic Fuel Injection and the Ride-by-Wire system to regulate the power. It is equipped with a sculptured metal fuel tank, and has three Riding Modes (Urban, Touring, Sport). The 2016 Ducati Monster 1200 also utilizes the Ducati Traction Control (DTC) with the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP) and a 2-1-2 staggered shotgun exhaust. Ducati uses Brembo Monobloc M4-32 calipers and disc brakes on the front with the multi-calibration 9MP ABS as standard, not as an option. It has an upright ergonomically correct seating position for a comfortable ride, add a seat along with the integrated handles and low footpegs and your passenger has a comfortable ride as well.
Ducati offers sport riders a faster, yet more comfortable version of its popular Monster flagship with its R-spec Monster 1200.
