Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
You should probably call this a Super Monster. The Ducati Monster 1200R gets a variation of the Testastretta 11 degree engine that is boosted to 160 hp, up 10 hp from the 1200S. Ohlins suspension, monobloc Brembo calipers, forged wheels, and a wider 200 series rear tire emphasize its penchant towards performance.
