High-spec Brembo brakes, fully adjustable Ohlins suspension, aluminium single-sided swingarm and lightweight wheels combine with the Ducati’s best-yet ergonomics to offer the Italian manufacturer’s most attractive Monster ever.

Super comfortable and introducing an innovative adjustable seat height, the model also combines 8-level DTC, three-level ABS and three-level Ride-by-Wire into Ducati’s user-friendly, press-button Riding Modes all as standard.

While the Monster 1200 is presented in Ducati red with red frame and black wheels, the Monster 1200 S offers Ducati red with red frame and glossy black wheels in addition to the striking scheme of white with bronze-coloured frame and glossy black wheels.

Orders are being placed daily by dedicated Monster owners and by customers taking their first steps into Ducati ownership attracted by the Monster design, high technical specification, 30,000km Desmo service intervals and its much broader scope for use as an easy to ride and genuine all-rounder.
