The Monster 1200 guarantees maximum riding pleasure without compromise thanks to the even more powerful Testastretta 11° DS engine, fluid torque and a perfectly balanced chassis that works in harmony with the latest-generation brakes and electronics. The seat, adjustable from 795mm to 820 mm, and the wide handlebar ensure manoeuvrability and practicality in traffic, while the compact aluminium swingarm and 1485mm wheelbase make it even quicker when it comes to leaning and changes of direction, enhancing the sports riding enjoyment and increasing versatility.
