Fifteen years after it first appeared, say hello to the latest member of the monstrous Monster family
THESE ARE the first official pictures of the new Ducati Monster 1100 and 1100S, which are due to go on sale in the UK early next year.
The new bike weighs 169kg (168kg for the S version), making it by far the lightest bike in its category, say Ducati.
The Monster 1100 S features fully adjustable 43mm titanium nitride coated Öhlins forks and progressive Öhlins rear shock absorber with adjustable pre-load and return damping. Carbon fibre cam belt covers, silencer guards and front fender reduce weight by a further 1kg (2.2lb). The distinctive racing gold coloured 5-spoke wheels of the Monster 1100 S give it an elegant style and the same sporting look as historical Ducati racing models.
Both versions of the new Monster 1100, already come factory-personalised with removable single seat covers and neat micro-bikini fairings, are powered by the two-valve 1100cc Desmodromic twin-cylinder engine with a 98mm bore and a 71.5mm stroke, delivering 95hp at 7500rpm and an impressive torque of 10.5kgm (79.5lb-ft) at 6000rpm.
The first public appearance for the Monster 1100 will be at the International Motorcycle Show in Cologne (INTERMOT – Hall 8) starting form the 8th October.
