Cutting-edge technology

Driving pleasure and feeling of control

Such modern Monster deserves a first-rate electronics kit. The standard equipment includes fully-adjustable ABS Cornering, Traction Control, Wheelie Control. 

This electronic equipment allows the bike's performance to be expressed with a high degree of active safety.

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.

Smart Power Mode
Ducati Traction Control

The Ducati Traction Control (DTC) system acts as a smart “filter” between accelerator and the rear tyre. 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 personalised 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 (whatever the throttle is opened) bringing the engine to maximum torque and letting the owner only to manage the clutch at the start. This is a drag race-proof mode that provides for the best possible acceleration.

Ducati 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.

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. 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.
