2020 Ducati Monster 1200S:

The Monster 1200 S presents the new Black on Black livery

The new colour alternates matt black elements with others painted in glossy black, which enhance the character of the bike. The result is a combination of sportiveness and elegance, always synonymous with Monster.

Unmistakeably Monster

A contemporary icon always featuring the core values of the original Monster. Essential and technological, the Monster 1200 stands out for design and sporty soul.

Always contemporary

The Monster 1200 has always been a symbol in the world of sporty naked bikes thanks to the details that make it unmistakable. In the S version, the new Black on Black color with matt and glossy black elements, enhances its sporty lines and character.

100% Monster

The engine powerful and full-bodied at every speed, the compact dimensions, the agile chassis and the world-class electronic equipment including Riding Modes, DTC, DWC, Cornering ABS and Ducati Quick Shift up/down, as standard on the S version, guarantee maximum riding enjoyment and, at the same time, maximum security.

Adapt it to your riding style

The pre-set Riding Modes allow the rider to optimise bike behaviour depending on riding style. Each of the three Riding Modes (Sport, Touring and Urban), is programmed to act on the electronic Ride-by-Wire (RbW) engine control system and on the ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Wheelie Control intervention levels.

Endless excitement

The cutting-edge materials and technologies of the Ducati Testastretta 11° DS ensure particularly long maintenance intervals. With an oil change required every 15,000 km or 12 months and valve clearance check every 30,000 km, the values are of absolute reference for its category.

Monster 1200 S becomes “Black on Black”

Borgo Panigale (Bologna, Italy), 12 September 2019 – Ducati looks to 2020 with the presentation of a new color scheme for the Monster 1200 S. For this coming season, in fact, the most iconic naked will feature a “Black on Black” livery with alternating gloss black and matt black parts. The Monster 1200 S will also remain available in traditional Ducati Red.

This all-new color scheme combines two classic Monster hallmarks: sport performance – accentuated by the flash of red on the rims – and sheer style, as brought out by the black. First launched in 1993, the Monster has defined the Sport Naked segment ever since. Today’s version continues to express the very essence of this category to maximum effect.

The Monster 1200 is equipped with an up-to-the-minute Testastretta 11° DS engine, capable of delivering 147 hp at 9,250 rpm and a full yet linear torque curve; that power is safely handled at all times by the Ride by Wire system and inertial platform, which provide ABS Cornering, Traction Control and Wheelie Control functions.

The exclusive S version sharpens that Monster sports performance to an even finer edge thanks to a 48 mm Öhlins fork and rear Öhlins monoshock, both fully adjustable. Awesome braking is provided by two 330 mm Brembo discs at the front working in concert with Brembo M50 monobloc calipers. The Monster 1200 S also features wheels with three Y-spokes, a carbon fibre front mudguard, a headlight characterized by the DRL (Daytime Running Light) and LED indicators. Completing the as-standard equipment is the up & down quickshifter.

The Monster 1200 S with the new “Black on Black” livery will be available in USA Ducati dealers starting in September at a price of $17,795.
