Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
The unmistakeable Monster design is truly iconic and means there is no limit to your enjoyment. The Performance package boosts the Testastretta 11° DS engine to 145 CV and makes the power easy to handle thanks to race-derived Brembo brakes and the fundamental hlins suspension. The carbon front mudguard and the machined rims with their light, aggressive design are the signature of every S version. Let yourself be guided by your Monster instinct.Concept Monster 1200 S
The Performance Package raises the power of the Testastretta 11 ° DS up to 145 hp and makes it easy to manage thanks to the racing derived Brembo brakes and precious hlins suspension. A carbon fiber front fender and machined wheels with a light and aggressive style are the signature of each S version. Be guided by your Monster instincts.Monster design
All the elements that created the Monster legend are evident at a glance: a powerful Monster-fly-line, round headlight flanked by the forks, solid and sculptural metal fuel tank, and the authentic less is more style concept that gives the perception of being in front of an engine, a chassis, a tank, a saddle; and nothing more.
Despite increased dimensions that offer unprecedented performance and versatility, the character of a sportbike is immediately evident in the Monsters proportions. The tail is sharp (with the decisive contribution of the low-mounted license plate holder), the mass is visually loaded at the front, and the engine area appears compact even with its new water cooling thanks to the expertly integrated oil cooler, radiator, and water hoses; the engine is coupled to an impressive side-mounted staggered shotgun exhaust that makes no secret of the bikes performance.
The new Monster 1200 visibly communicates sophistication, modernity and substance via advanced technical solutions and premium materials: the traditional Ducati trellis frame evolves to use a racing derived solution with the motor as a stressed element; the full TFT dashboard and front and rear lights underline the bikes orientation toward the future; and the sculptural metal fuel tank in pure Monster-style along with brushed metallic components further increase its premium position.
The rear view of the bike has been designed keeping in mind the possibility to easily fix dedicated side panniers, so that the mounting system is perfectly integrated with the bikes style when panniers are removed.Riding Mode
The new Monster incorporates the very latest innovative Ducati technologies, including the famous Ducati branded Riding Modes. The three Riding Modes (URBAN, TOURING, SPORT) are enabled by combining class-leading technologies such as: Ride-by-Wire (RbW), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), multi-calibration 9MP ABS and the graphics on the instrument panel. The rider can change the character of the bike by selecting from the left-hand switchgear - even while riding - among three different pre-set configurations (Riding Modes) that best adapt to the riding style or riding conditions. The Riding Modes make it possible to instantly modify the power delivered by the engine (RbW), the activation levels of DTC and ABS, and the graphics on the instrument panel.
The Riding Modes are factory pre-set in each of the three parameters, but can be individually customised and saved to suit the rider. A defaultoption is available to easily return all settings to factory pre-sets.
