2012 Ducati Monster 1100 Evo launched
Ducati have launched the newest, baddest ogre in the family – the 2012 Monster 1100 Evo, which is fitted with a 100bhp, 103Nm version of Ducati’s 1100cc air-cooled ‘Desmodue Evoluzione’ V-twin. New bits include a lighter, less restrictive exhaust system, 43mm Marzocchi front fork (fully adjustable), rising-rate Sachs monoshock and revised styling for the tail section. Ducati also claim that the 1100 Evo benefits from improved ergonomics and that the new ABS brakes and four-level traction control system (DTC) make the bike safer than ever before.
With a dry weight of 169 kilos and its 100-horsepower, two-valves-per-cylinder V-twin engine, the Monster 1100 Evo may not be hardest-edged streetfighter in the world, but it’s definitely a very good-looking, high-tech piece of kit that scores extra points for style. The Brembo-Bosch ABS system is one of the best in the world and four-level traction control provides an extra margin of safety for most riders.
Pricing and availability details for the 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 Evo coming soon.
