– 2006 Ducati Monster 1000S
2006 Ducati Monster 1000S
The “S” version is a benchmark for style and performance. A colour-matched front fairing and rear seat cover are included, complimented by carbon fibre exhaust guards and side panels. Performance is enhanced by a set of Showa front forks that are fully-adjustable for compression, rebound and pre-load combined with a lightweight aluminum swingarm. If you‘re looking for a high performance ride, the Monster 1000S is the bike for you: surprising ease of handling, impeccable road manners, a comfortable riding position designed with extra ground clearance, and high-quality components result in a bike that’s tailor-made for your needs. This bike has no limits.
The Monster 1000 is only available as the “S” version in the United States unless you opt for the limited edition Cromo version which is a standard Monster 1000. Both bikes features the 1000 DS engine and advanced rising rate Superbike rear suspension that allows the adjustment of ride height separately from spring preload. Normally expensive upgrades like adjustable control levers, anti-theft immobilizer and Brembo twin disc brakes are standard on both models.
Our most powerful air-cooled Monster gets its strength from the 1000 Dual Spark engine that achieves new levels of efficiency and reliability. Ducati’s decades of experience with air-cooled twin technology and the innovative 1000 DS engine are a product of our continuous advancement in the field.
Deciding which Monster is right for you is just the beginning of the adventure. Beautiful hand air-brushed tanks, billet aluminum parts, carbon fibre accessories, multiple exhaust systems and literally hundreds of customizing parts to change the look and enhance performance are available. A Ducati Performance customizing catalog is standard equipment with your new Monster.
MSRP $10,995 USD
THE ORIGINAL “NAKED” MOTORCYCLE
The Monster is the original, unique “naked” motorcycle. Launched to rave reviews in the 1990s, it has become a cult classic. Today, more than ever, it is a modern motorcycling legend, the bike of choice of top designers, Hollywood stars and Formula One racing drivers.
The Monster is a “street fighter” that offers outstanding sport bike performance together with a style that has often been imitated but never equalled. In addition, the Ducati Performance Accessories catalogue, which is included with each bike, is bursting with ideas to customise your bike and improve its performance. You can get gorgeous, airbrushed fuel tanks, accessories machined from solid aluminium, carbon fibre, high performance exhaust systems and hundreds of special parts to make each and every Monster even more unique.
The Monster family offers a choice of air or liquid-cooled, two and four-valve Desmo engines. The Superbike derived trellis frame, powerful engines with fuel injection, plus braking and suspension systems that are all derived from our experience in the racing world.
