Unmistakably Monster, aggressively racing. The Monster 1200 R makes an immediate impact with its sporty, compact and lightweight lines. The typical Monster design of the tank blends with the sporty lines of the rear section that, thanks also to the new compact, lightweight frame, immediately conveys an idea of power and dynamism.
The tailpiece is aerodynamic, pointing upwards, while the seat – one single piece for rider and passenger – is shorter and slimmer. The licence plate holder, fixed in a high position, means the 200/55 tyre is clearly visible, mounted on a three-spoke forged wheel, inspired by that of the Panigale R.
Attention to detail
The new aesthetics of the Monster 1200 R are completed by the screen and longitudinal graphics inspired by the classic Ducati Corse band. The exclusiveness of this model is also reflected in the attention to detail, for example the metallic radiator covers with R graphic obtained through sanding.
The dimensions of the new Monster 1200 R offer more space even to taller riders. The sporty riding style is enhanced with separate passenger footpegs that offer more space when riding, pushing on ones toes and lengthening the knee towards the ground.
The Monster 1200 R is available in Ducati red and new Thrilling black; both versions are enriched by a longitudinal sporty motif, representing the “R”, which appears on the front mudguard, the mini-frame, tank and passenger seat upholstery.
