2016 Ducati Monster 1200 R
MSRP $18,695

The 2016 Ducati Monster  1200 R is the most powerful and sophisticated Monster yet, with trickle-down features from the Panigle 1299, from its brakes to suspension to three-spoke forged wheels. It is outfitted with the 1198cc Testastretta 11° DS L-Twin engine that puts out a claimed 160 hp @ 9250 rpm in a motorcycle that weighs 456 pounds. It runs fully adjustable Ohlins suspension front and back. The Monster 1200 R has plenty of Ducati’s high-end electronic rider aids, including Ducati Traction Control, ABS, three riding modes (Urban, Touring, Sport), Ride by Wire system, and TFT dash. The tail section dons a fresh design with more aerodynamic sportbike-styling while the single piece seat is shorter and slimmer.
