Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Buyer's Guide > Monster 1200
Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
The 1200 carries on Ducati's Monster tradition: Powerful, attractive naked bikes that still look as good now as the original did back in 1993. The 2017 model now makes more horsepower and torque, and has an Inertial Measurement Unit, meaning Ducati engineers were able to include electronic riding aids like leaning ABS, traction control, wheelie control, and the like.
