2015 Ducati Monster 1200S on Totalmotorcycle.com

Monster instinct

The unmistakeable Monster design is truly iconic and means there is no limit to your enjoyment.
The “Performance package” boosts the Testastretta 11° DS engine to 145 CV and makes the power easy to handle thanks to race-derived Brembo brakes and the fundamental Öhlins suspension. The carbon front mudguard and the machined rims with their light, aggressive design are the signature of every “S” version. Let yourself be guided by your Monster instinct.

Testastretta 11° DS second generation…

The Monster returns to its outrageous roots with the Desmo, liquid-cooled, 4-valves-per-cylinder, 1198cc Testastretta 11° DS motor. Underlining its naked motorcycle passion with the mantra: “it’s all about the engine”, these latest generation models present the most usable, excitement-fuelled power ever delivered by a Monster.

The second generation Testastretta 11° Dual Spark engine, which is a fully-stressed chassis member with Panigale-style attachment points for the Trellis frame, uses a number of important and highly effective features to deliver 135 hp @ 8750rpm and for the Monster 1200 S, an extra 10 hp to 145 hp @ 8750rpm.

Ducati have dialled-in an impressive torque curve to further enhance riding pleasure, generating a peak torque of 87 lb-ft (12kgm) for the Monster 1200 and 92 lb-ft (12.7 kgm) for the 1200 S version, both values @ 7250rpm.

A number of well-proven technical advancements in Ducati’s twin-cylinder technology have been combined with the 1198’s torque-laden 106 mm x 67.9 mm bore and stroke to create an exciting, customisable and user-friendly character for the newest generation Monster.

Breathing through circular Mikuni Ride-by-Wire throttle bodies, the 1198 Testastretta 11° DS uses the latest fuel injector positioning to target spray directly onto the rear of the hot intake valve instead of the relatively cold surface of the intake port wall. The enhanced vaporisation achieved as the fuel hits the valve, fully atomises the incoming charge, eliminating the chance of compromised combustion efficiency experienced if droplets of fuel enter in liquid form. With the delivery of a fully vaporised inlet charge, the concept of Dual Spark (DS) with two spark plugs per cylinder-head, provides a twin flame-front that ensures complete and efficient combustion across a shorter period of time. The engine, which is cooled with a stylishly curved radiator equipped with two high-efficiency electric fans, also uses Ducati’s secondary air system, maintaining performance-optimised fuel mapping for smoother cycle-to-cycle engine operation, without compromising emissions.

The Testastretta 11° engine effectively took the fire-breathing 1198 Superbike power plant and reengineered it with increased user-friendliness. Engineers achieved this to great effect by reducing the amount of valve over-lap from around 41° – typical in performance engines that operate constantly at high RPM – to just 11°, which reduced peak horse-power slightly, but enhanced mid-range and overall smoothness.

The Monster engine 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 lever at the handlebar, ideal in stop-start traffic or 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.

The impressive 50-52 mm (1.96-2.04 in) section exhaust headers lead the 2-1-2 system through powerenhancing equal lengths that help enable the Monster’s efficient power delivery. The engine management system dedicates a lambda probe to each header to provide precise fueling, while the stylish cannon-style, vertically stacked silencers carry catalytic converters to provide Euro 3 conformity and electronically controlled mid-section valve to optimise exhaust pressures throughout the rev-range.

 

 

 

2015 Ducati Monster 1200S Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

The world premiere of the Ducati Monster at the 1992 Cologne Motor Show introduced the first motorcycle to harmonise simple features of essential design. More than a motorcycle, it was destined to become a style icon, minimalistic and essential.

Charismatic in its simplicity, it presented a bold and brave concept from the Bologna-based manufacturer, which signified a break from tradition. The Ducati Monster was incredibly successful for the company and kick-started a new and futuristic direction in motorcycling – the “naked”.

Ducati continues the evolution of the family, with the latest generation of the model, a reference point for personal statement and customisation and a trend-leader in the world of motorcycling.

More than two decades on from the Monster’s first unveiling, Ducati has introduced the latest generation with the Monster 1200S and 1200 S powered by the formidable, Superbike-derived 1198 Testastretta 11° DS engine, and with the Monster 821, the mid-size version of the iconic model. The family presents a new chassis and muscular styling designed with premium components fully integrated with Ducati’s latest technologies. High-spec brakes, suspensions, swingarm and lightweight wheels combine with Ducati’s bestyet 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 traction control, 3-level ABS and 3-level Ride-by-Wire into Ducati’s user-friendly, press-button Riding Modes. The Monster 1200S and Monster 821 use latest generation technologies to create an enhanced rider/motorcycle relationship, delivering a high-adrenaline experience while constantly reassuring with the feeling of complete control and ergonomic integration.

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

The Monster 821 Dark is available in dark stealth with black frame and black wheels, while the Monster 821 is dressed in Ducati red with red frame and black wheels or star white silk with red frame and matte red wheels. Both red and white liveries are equipped with colour-matched single-seat covers. This model is also made available to restricted license holders with the specially regulated power versions of 25kw for Switzerland and 35kw for other participating countries.

Introducing the Monster

The Monster’s worldwide success and well-earned image as the unchallenged icon of naked motorcycles is the result of investing over 20 years of Ducati engineering, design and styling experience. It is an investment in time, constantly rewarded by being the motorcycle of choice for motorcycle connoisseurs and celebrities, from actors and musicians to Formula 1 drivers and top athletes.

Over 290,000 Monsters have been sold, creating a growing world of Monsteristi with a creative passion for personalisation. The Monster has always been a statement on two wheels, an expression that created a cult following and, above all, a premium
lifestyle motorcycle easily accessible to everyone.

The Monster range represents the next generation of this famous family, combining genuine Monster tradition with Ducati’s latest technical solutions to engineer a modern and mature masterpiece. From the super-smooth refinement of the Testastretta 11° engine and its Panigale-style direct attachment to the frame to best-ever ergonomics, this iconic motorcycle mixes authentic sport character with lifestyle sophistication.

The Monster’s larger metal fuel tank presents an even more muscular image, emphasised by a narrow waistline and an incredibly compact headlamp that creates the overall silhouette of a powerful bull ready to charge. The clean and minimal handlebar area continues the naked icon’s essential character with distinctive quality to component finish.

 

 

2015 Ducati Monster 1200S Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Concept Monster 1200 S


Monster instinct
The “Performance Package” raises the power of the Testastretta 11 ° DS up to 145 hp and makes it easy to manage thanks to the racing derived Brembo brakes and precious Öhlins suspension. A carbon fiber front fender and machined wheels with a light and aggressive style are the signature of each “S” version. Be guided by your Monster instincts.


Monster design


All the elements that created the Monster legend are evident at a glance: a powerful “Monster-fly-line”, round headlight flanked by the forks, solid and sculptural metal fuel tank, and the authentic “less is more” style concept that gives the perception of being in front of an engine, a chassis, a tank, a saddle; and nothing more.
Despite increased dimensions that offer unprecedented performance and versatility, the character of a sportbike is immediately evident in the Monster’s proportions. The tail is sharp (with the decisive contribution of the low-mounted license plate holder), the mass is visually loaded at the front, and the engine area appears compact even with its new water cooling thanks to the expertly integrated oil cooler, radiator, and water hoses; the engine is coupled to an impressive side-mounted staggered shotgun exhaust that makes no secret of the bike’s performance.
The new Monster 1200S visibly communicates sophistication, modernity and substance via advanced technical solutions and premium materials: the traditional Ducati trellis frame evolves to use a racing derived solution with the motor as a stressed element; the full TFT dashboard and front and rear lights underline the bike’s orientation toward the future; and the sculptural metal fuel tank in pure “Monster-style” along with brushed metallic components further increase its premium position.
The rear view of the bike has been designed keeping in mind the possibility to easily fix dedicated side panniers, so that the mounting system is perfectly integrated with the bike’s style when panniers are removed.

Riding Mode


The new Monster incorporates the very latest innovative Ducati technologies, including the famous Ducati branded Riding Modes. The three Riding Modes (URBAN, TOURING, SPORT) are enabled by combining class-leading technologies such as: Ride-by-Wire (RbW), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), multi-calibration 9MP ABS and the graphics on the instrument panel. The rider can change the character of the bike by selecting from the left-hand switchgear – even while riding – among three different pre-set configurations (Riding Modes) that best adapt to the riding style or riding conditions. The Riding Modes make it possible to instantly modify the power delivered by the engine (RbW), the activation levels of DTC and ABS, and the graphics on the instrument panel.
The Riding Modes are factory pre-set in each of the three parameters, but can be individually customised and saved to suit the rider. A “default”option is available to easily return all settings to factory pre-sets.

Testastretta 11° DS


The new Monster 1200S 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 1200S 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 1200S 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 1200S 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 1200S 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.

 

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

 

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.


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.

Tailored ergonomics


The new Monster 1200S 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).

Y-pattern 3-spoke machined wheels


The sporty attitude of the Monster 1200 S is emphasized by its very aggressive sport rim design. The “S” has weight saving Y-pattern 3-spoke machined wheels in lightweight aluminum, finished in gloss black.
The 3.5×17 front wheel and 6×17 rear wheel are fitted, respectively, with 120/70 ZR and 190/55 ZR Pirelli Diablo Rosso II tyres.

Ohlins high-spec suspension


The racing inspired chassis geometry is matched with Ø 48 mm Öhlins usd forks, fully adjustable in spring preload and precisely adjustable in compression and rebound damping. At the rear the ‘S’ uses an Öhlins mono-shock with integrated piggy-back, fully adjustable in spring preload with full adjustment and highly engineered control of compression and rebound damping. The Öhlins mono-shock is fixed on one side to the vertical cylinder head, 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.


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.


Superbike-spec Brembo brake system


The Monster 1200 S’s 145 hp are managed by a Superbike-spec brake system. It is equipped with the same brakes found on the 1199 Panigale, which deliver stunning performance; a racing oriented PR 16 brake pump manages top-level Ø 330 mm discs, which are gripped by the state of the art Brembo M50 Monobloc radial callipers that use MotoGp derived technology to be powerful yet compact and lightweight. A single Ø 240 mm disc in the rear is gripped by a two piston calliper, also by Brembo.


Ducati Safety Pack (DSP)


In developing the new Monster, attention has been paid not only to achieve top level performance but also to ensure both rider and passengers a high level of safety in all driving conditions. This second goal has been achieved by equipping all the Monster 1200S versions with the Ducati Safety Pack (DSP), which comes standard along with the 9MP ABS system and the 8-level Ducati Traction Control (DTC).

Authentic Monster headlight


The front view of the new Monster 1200S is dominated by a round headlight flanked by the forks, underlining the authentic and powerful Monster-line.
The headlight itself is a modern unit that uses a bulb light for high-low beam functions, and LED technology for the two position lights placed at the sides.
The fully integrated tail light is fully LED.
The front and rear side indicators are with bulbs. In EU markets, the Monster 1200S S also features LED turn lights.
Both versions are equipped with a license plate LED light.

 

Performance package


The Monster 1200 S comes standard with a “performance package” that offers more power (+ 10 Hp) and torque (+ 1 Kgm), front and rear Ohlins suspension components, and a Superbike-spec Brembo brake system. The front mudguard in carbon fibre and the Y-pattern 3-spoke machined wheels complete the “S” equipment. In EU markets, the Monster 1200 S also features LED turn lights.


Full-TFT instrument panel


The new Monster 1200S and Monster 1200S S are equipped with a state of the art 1199 Panigale inspired full-TFT instrument panel. The display’s configuration is variable and automatically adapts to variations in environmental light, also changing according to the selected Riding Mode or fully selectable by the rider. There are three configurations, different in background style, information displayed, and display layout: CORE view is preset for the URBAN riding mode: only the most essential riding information is displayed; FULL view, preset for the TOURING riding mode, provides the same layout as CORE with more information displayed; and finally TRACK view is preset for the SPORT riding mode, having crucial information more immediately visible such as an rpm bar graph with the same sporty layout as that of the 1199 Panigale.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC)


Ducati branded DTC offers a choice of eight profiles, or ‘sensitivity levels’, each one programmed with a wheel-spin tolerance matched to progressive levels of riding skill, graded from one to eight. Pre-selected levels of intervention are related to appropriate Riding Modes. When DTC is activated, its ECU analyses data sent from front and rear wheel speed sensors to detect the amount of wheel-spin and to evaluate the type of intervention necessary. This intervention is executed in a very smooth way through electronic retardation of the ignition to reduce the engine’s torque, until the full grip of the rear wheel has been re-established. DTC can also be deactivated if the rider wishes.
DTC levels are factory pre-set in each of the three Riding Modes, but can be individually customised and saved to suit the rider. A “default”option is available to easily return all settings to factory pre-sets.

ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) 9MP


The ABS system is the 9MP multi-calibration ABS, meaning the rider has the possibility to switch from one configuration to another by selecting the appropriate Riding Mode. 9MP ABS prevents front and rear wheels from locking, and has refined rear wheel lift-up prevention to offer the shortest stopping distance and high stability by using the information of a sensor measuring pressure at the front wheel caliper. ABS can be deactivated if the rider wishes. ABS-Off can be loaded as a configuration of a riding mode and is maintained after switching the key off.

Low mounted number plate


The new Monster shows immediately a sport-bike character via its proportions: the mass is visually loaded at the front and the the tail is clean and sharp around the rear of the seat. A license plate holder, fixed in a low mounted position on the rear hub of the single-sided swingarm around the 190 section rear tyre, enables a central mounting of the plate. This plate is then illuminated by LED lights.
