New Monster R — big, bad, nakedPOSTED BY Nigel Andretti ON 15 September 2015
DUCATI’S new Monster 1200 R has been unveiled by Claudio Domenicali, Ducati Motor Holding chief during the Volkswagen Group Night in Frankfurt yesterday.
With its 160 hp, the Monster 1200 R is the most powerful Ducati naked of all time.
Its key features include the Testastretta 11° DS twin-cylinder engine in its “R” version (EURO 4 homologated) and a revised chassis to ensure maximum effect and enjoyment on track.
In addition, the brand new design of the tail and front section accentuate the sporting credentials of this new version of the Monster.
Available in Ducati Red and Thrilling Black, the new Monster 1200 R will be on sale from early 2016.
The Monster 1200 R is on show to the public at the Frankfurt motor show which began Tuesday, September 15.
