A new Monster Design

The new Monster draws its DNA from the model dated back 1993, namely reflects what is needed to get supreme fun when riding a bike. In other words, an engine, a seat, a tank, a handlebar

Furthermore, it integrates all the unmistakable elements that characterize the iconic model: the bison-back-shaped tank, the round headlight, the clean tail, not to mention the greater prominence given to the engine

It is a brand-new chapter characterized by evolved shapes mixed with modern, sporty, elegant, sophisticated yet technological flavors. All components perfectly integrated in the design. 

Maximum compactness and lightness are wisely combined with the traditional yet essential and pure lines of Ducati. In addition, each single technical feature participates, in harmony, with the design to reimagine the concept of the sport naked conceived by Ducati in 1993. Starting with the front frame, clearly inspired by the Panigale V4.

This new Monster reveals all its seductive lines, namely the narrow seat, the muscular tank which widens towards the rear to meet the side panels to make a truly sporty bike.

New full-LED headlight

The full-LED headlight maintains the iconic, round shape, made even more evident and modern by the incorporation of the LED Daytime Time Running Light (DRL) system. 

The structure of the headlight also evolves, and it does so thanks to a lens that fully integrates both optical and electronic elements. What’s more, the technical elements contribute to create modern and technological suggestions. 

Monster in details

The tank is undoubtedly the icing on the cake. Curved and muscular, as a real Monster deserves, sculpted with the classic knees area, it evolves on the sides stretched towards the front wheel. Even proportions have undergone a change, becoming shorter to accommodate a more modern and advanced ergonomics. 

The short tail, essential and appealing, has a visible rear frame with both a structural and aesthetic function, in addition to two painted side panels inspired by the Panigale V4. 

Created for your enjoyment

Precise through the turns. Stable along the straight. Completely at ease whether in city traffic or on track. The new Monster will trace your every movement, thanks to an advanced yet intuitive chassis that ensures a fun and fulfilling ride. 

1
Front Frame

The new Monster brings the engine back to center-stage. Linked to a front frame derived from the the Panigale V4, the new engine is made of aluminum and is 10 lbs (4.5 kg) lighter than the 821 model.

2
Sleek tail

The sleek tail, attached directly to the engine, also participates in the overall lightness. A single element made of GFRP (Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer) which acts as a load-bearing tail and as a support for all the electrical and electronic parts. The battery has also been revamped in terms of size (now smaller) and lightness. In general, each component has been designed to be as light as possible.

3
Seat height

The rider is now even more at ease and relaxed thanks to a particular design of the seat, characterized not only by an extremely reduced shape of the seat-to-foot area but also by an exclusive foam. This latter element maximizes comfort and gives the real feedback of “what’s happening” under the wheels. The riding position has been refreshed to further enhance ergonomics, control and comfort.

Hydraulic clutch

The clutch equipping the new Monster is wet anti-patter type and thanks to its particular self-servo system can guarantee a smooth feedback. Thanks to the new hydraulic control results extremely “light” to pull (-20% effort) and perfect in modulating the attack to suit riders of all levels and spirit.

Braking system

The best possible braking system while maintaining great modulation and light and punctual control in operation: that is the aim of the Ducati engineers who developed, in close collaboration with Brembo, a higher-end braking system.

2
Tires and wheels

Even the alloy-wheels, reduced to a mere 3.7 lbs (1.7 kg) compared to the Monster 821 models, participate in the overall new Monster lightness. 3.5 x 17” up front and 5.5 x 17” at the rear, mounting Pirelli Diablo Rosso III tires, 120/70 up front and 180/55 at the rear. A special choice to support the sportiness of the Monster, both on dry and wet surfaces.

3
Steering angle

The new frame but also the careful positioning of some parts, such as the radiator, have made great improvements compared to the previous Monster 821, namely the 36° steering angle that is 7° more than the existing version. Thanks to this technical formula, the Monster has never been so agile in urban riding and also when changing direction, thus resulting easier and more intuitive.

4
Engine

The engine is almost 5.3 lbs less than the Monster 821. This contributes to the lightening of the new Monster.

An easy and handling bike

To ensure maximum maneuvrability at low speeds and facilitate manoeuvring from a standstill, the steering angle has been increased to 36° (+7° compared to the 821). 

The handlebar has been brought closer to the rider's torso by about 7 cm to have a more upright riding position that guarantees greater comfort and control. The position of the feet has also been changed, and the legs are now less curled up. All this translates into greater riding ease, even in city traffic.  

Everything you need to have fun

The new Monster is powered by the 937 cc twin-cylinder Desmodromic Testastretta 11° engine. In this latest version its weight has been reduced (-5.3 lb), now achieving further performance as well as usability levels. Designed to be a stressed chassis element, the twin-cylinder represents a crucial element capable of ensuring the motorcycle overall lightness.  

The new Monster has higher power levels than the previous Monster with a maximum power of 111 hp at 9,250 rpm and a maximum torque of 68 lb-ft at 6,500 rpm. 

Power therefore grows by 2 hp while the torque increases by 5 lb-ft and maximum peak is reached 1,250 rpm, before if compared to the 821 model, with a richer delivery curve at whichever revs, especially at low-to-mid revs, mostly used on the road. This figure therefore means a richer delivery together with a more instant engine response. In other words, it guarantees exciting riding pleasure.

  

Thanks to a refined work covering all components, the brand-new 937 Testastretta engine results extremely reliable as well as affordable in terms of (long) maintenance intervals. Oil services have an expiration set at 9,300 miles (30,000 km) while the valve play inspection is needed just every 18,640 miles (30,000 km).

Ride-by-Wire system allows the adoption of different Riding Modes to change the character of the engine according to individual riders’ styles and needs.

The clutch equipping the new Monster is wet anti-patter type and thanks to its particular self-servo system can guarantee a smooth feedback. Thanks to the new hydraulic control results extremely “light” to pull (-20% effort) and perfect in modulating the attack to suit riders of all levels and spirit.

This system acts in a double way: by “pushing” the discs against each other in acceleration and reducing the pressure on the clutch discs when an opposite torque is applied, so preventing rear wheel destabilization during aggressive downshifting. The Quick Shifter, available as standard, ensures shifting assistance both up and downshifting and is the perfect companion in true sporty adventure as well as urban-style riding, thus preventing, in this specific case, the rider from frequently gear changes.

Cutting-edge technology

The new Monster has a first-rate electronics kit. The standard equipment includes fully-adjustable ABS Cornering, Traction Control, and Wheelie Control. 

The new Monster’s sporty nature is underlined by the Launch Control for lightning-fast starts. Launch Control is an extraordinary feature found in supersport motorcycles that is now available to all passionate riders with the new Monster. 

Like all the latest generation Ducati bikes, the new Monster takes advantage of the Ride-by-Wire technology for the dynamic control systems of the bike, to compose the Riding Modes that modify the character of the bike adapting it to the road conditions and/or the rider’s riding skill. 

The ABS, adjustable on 3 intervention levels, now integrates the cornering function in level 3 and 2. While highest level 3 setting offers extraordinary stability while braking together with maximum rear lift-up prevention, level 2 enables sport-oriented ABS intervention with moderate rear lift-up prevention. Lastly, level 1, with no rear lift-up prevention, is of the “only front” type and offers maximum performance on the racetrack 

Ducati Traction Control (DTC)

The Ducati Traction Control (DTC) system acts as a smart “filter” between accelerator and the rear tire. It lets the rider select one of 8 different intervention levels. Each of the 3 Riding Modes has default DTC levels but these can be personalized to suit individual riders’ styles and road conditions. 

Launch Control

The new Monster is equipped with a Launch Control system that allows extremely effective starts. Once activated, the system autonomously manages the engine (whenever the throttle is opened) bringing the engine to maximum torque and letting the owner focus on managing the clutch at the start. This is a drag race-proof mode that provides for the best possible acceleration.

Wheelie Control

The Launch Control system also makes use of the Wheelie Control, the control that allows the bike to accelerate to the maximum while detecting any front wheel lift. This attitude is managed electronically, improving riding safety but, at the same time, ensuring the best possible acceleration performance. Furthermore, Wheelie Control is independently adjustable from other control systems. 

Smart Power Mode

The Ducati Riding Modes have marked a turning point in the motorcycle world. The rider is able to select, depending on the model, between three different preset maps that optimise motorcycle behaviour depending on the rider’s requirements and road conditions.
The rider can change the strategy at any time – even when moving – thanks to the handlebar controls and the indications on the instrument panel. Moreover, the rider can customise each Riding Mode by changing the default threshold values for traction control, wheelie control and ABS Cornering. In detail:

Power Mode High
Sport

Dedicated torque curve in 1st gear and full torque curve in the other gears.

Power Mode Medium
Touring

Dedicated torque curves in 1st and 2nd gears and full torque curve in the other gears.

Power Mode Low
Urban

Dedicated torque curves in 1st and 2nd gears and limited torque curve (max. power 75 hp) in other gears.

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. 

Color TFT instrumentation

The Monster instrument panel is embellished by a 4.3” color TFT display. Its graphics comes from the Panigale V4 and offers useful on-board information. The center of the screen shows the rev counter and currently selected gear. Even air temperature and fuel level are immediately readable. This device is also designed to display information from the Ducati Multimedia System (DMS), which allows you to connect a 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

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. 

The Monster has always been a symbol of customization

To allow each Monsterista to make their bike even more unique, Decal kits have been created that enhance the shapes of the Monster and celebrate Ducati's sportiness. 

For those wishing to accentuate the style of their Monster in an even more decisive way, cover kits will also be available. As with all Ducati motorcycles, a wide range of Ducati Performance accessories is also available, such as the double Termignoni approved silencer with carbon fibre end caps. 

In the section dedicated to the Ducati Configurator all the customization options can be viewed .

Pixel cover kit

A bold, sporty and modern look: the choice for those who don’t like to go unnoticed. The kit consists of tank cover, seat side body panels, seat cover, headlight fairing and front mudguard, and is compatible with all models. An accessory to characterize and personalise the bike to the maximum, giving the Monster an even more aggressive, unmistakable look.
