Ducati goes black with Monster 1200 S

2020 Ducati Monster 1200 S equipped with black livery

Ducati Motor is looking forward to the year 2020 with the new color scheme for the Monster 1200 S. Its most iconic naked bike will feature a “Black on Black” livery with gloss and matt black parts.

This all-new color scheme combines two classic Monster hallmarks: sport performance – accentuated by the flash of red on the rims – and sheer style, as brought out by the black.

The Monster 1200 is equipped with an up-to-the-minute Testastretta 11° DS engine, capable of delivering 147 hp at 9,250 rpm and a full yet linear torque curve; that power is safely handled at all times by the Ride by Wire system and inertial platform, which provide ABS Cornering, Traction Control, and Wheelie Control function.

To sharpen the performance of the Monster, the exclusive S version is equipped with an adjustable 48mm Ohlins fork rear and Ohlins monoshock. The braking system has two 330 mm Brembo discs and Brembo M50 monobloc calipers. The Monster 1200 S also has wheels with three Y-spokes.

Other features include a carbon fiber front mudguard, a headlight characterized by the DRL (Daytime Running Light) and LED indicators. Completing the as-standard equipment is the up & down quickshifter.
