Ducati unveiled the new Monster 1200 at the 2013 EICMA, where it also showcased the 899 Panigale and the 1199 Superleggera.
The new Monster 1200 comes with a 1198cc liquid-cooled Testastretta 11° engine instead of the previous air-cooled V-twin. It delivers 135PS and 117Nm of peak torque. There is also a 1200S that is cranked higher to deliver 145PS and 125Nm. The red frame of the Monster remains the same barring a few ergonomic tweaks. Wheelbase has been increased, and the bike gets height adjustable seat. Braking is taken care of by Brembo with the S getting a slightly upgraded assembly. The suspensions of the 1200 are fully adjustable 43mm Kayaba forks upfront and Sachs monoshock with adjustable spring-preload and rebound damping at the rear. The 1200S, on the other hand, gets adjustable 48mm Titanium-Nitride forks at the front and Ohlin shock absorber at the rear.
Other features are a wet slipper clutch, ride by wire system, three ride modes with eight level traction control and switchable three level 9MP ABS by Bosch. There is also a TFT colour display which changes layout according to ride mode. When in Urban mode, the screen displays basic information such as speed and rpm, in the touring mode the screen offers more complete layout and in sports mode, the screen changes over to track setting with emphasis on engine speed.
The other attractions, namely the 899 Panigale and 1199 Superleggera have been detailed by Ducati earlier. The Panigale was at the Frankfurt Auto Show and the 1199 Superleggera was recently revealed.
