Ducati Riding Modes
Ducati Riding Modes undoubtedly marked an engineering milestone, letting riders select - depending on the model - different settings: Sport, Touring and Urban that optimise motorcycle behaviour to individual riding styles and different road conditions. Each Riding Mode have been developed to vary the engine character (Power Modes) and the ABS, DTC and DWC intervention levels instantaneously, even when riding.
Sport Riding Mode: the engine delivers 111 hp with direct Ride-by-Wire throttle twist response, reduced DTC intervention, level 2 ABS braking efficiency and moderate rear wheel lift control. DWC intervention level enhances sporty riding.
Touring Riding Mode: the engine delivers 111 hp with a more progressive RbW throttle twist response, increased DTC intervention, level 3 ABS braking efficiency in order to ensure maximum braking stability and moderate rear wheel lift control. DWC is tuned to an optimal level to guarantee relaxed riding.
Urban Riding Mode: the engine delivers 75 hp maximum power with progressive RbW throttle twist response; DTC is set to an even higher intervention level and the ABS is set to level 3, maximising braking stability and wheel lift-up prevention.
Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down
Available as standard on the new Monster the Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down, a race-derived electronic system, lets riders up-change without using the clutch. This system not only boosts the enjoyment of sports riding but it also lends a welcome hand in city traffic or on winding roads requiring frequent gear changes.
Colour TFT instrumentation
The Monster instrument panel is embellished by a 4.3” colour TFT display. Its graphics comes from the Panigale V4 and offers useful on-board information. In the center of the screen rev counter and currently selected gear are showed. Even air temperature and fuel level are immediately readable. This device it is also predisposed to display information from the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), which allows to connect the smartphone to the motorcycle via Bluetooth module (available as an accessory) and to manage some functions via the buttons positioned on the handlebar. The display shows the “music player” commands, the headset connection status icons, incoming call as well as message received alert icons.
Headlight and indicators
Needless to say, the round headlight on the new Monster is undoubtedly a great comeback, a beautiful tribute to the past enriched by the most advanced full-LED technology, which also fits the entire light system. Furthermore, Ducati adds the swiping technology, namely “dynamic” and auto-cancelling indicators, which represents a first.
