2020 Ducati Monster 1200 S
For 2020 Ducati’s most iconic naked will feature a “Black on Black” livery with alternating gloss black and matt black parts.
Traditionalists are not forgotten though as the Monster 1200 S will also remain available in traditional Ducati Red.
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 broad expanse of torque.
That power is harnessed in by the Ride by Wire throttle and inertia driven safety system, which provide ABS Cornering, Traction Control and Wheelie Control functions.
The 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 triple Y-spokes, a carbon fibre front mudguard, a headlight characterised by the DRL (Daytime Running Light) and LED indicators. Completing the as-standard equipment is the up & down quickshifter.
