New 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO

Also in snowy New York this weekend at the IMS Show, Ducati debuting its 2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO, It is powered by the Desmodue Evoluzione engine which is the first two-valve Ducati to hit the 100 hp. mark and is now the flagship of the extremely successful Monster Line. The first 900 Monster was introduced in 1992 and was immediately extremely successful with its radical styling that provided the inspiration for an entire after-market sector specializing in custom parts for this legendary machine.

Compared with the previous 1100 cc, The Monster 1100 EVO mixes higher engine power (both volumetric and combustion efficiency have been increased, new inlet ports, combustion chamber redesigned)), a Ducati Safety Pack (ABS + DTC) contained of advanced electronics, a new sports concept and superior riding pleasure to refine the original Monster formula, which makes it an icon of the naked segment. It is the most powerful air cooled Ducati ever. Will hit dealer showrooms beginning of summer. MSRP is $11,995. Ducati.

    hmmm one of the these (and a Caribbean vacation) or the new HD Blackline – thats a tough call for the younger generation – just glad I am old enough not to have to make that tough choice.

    One of these days my old ass will own a duck. They make some awesome looking bikes and this one is no exception. Not a big inovation that I can tell over previous models, just a nice straight forward design with powerful engine as it’s base. Not a bad price either for an italian.

    These pics don’t do this model justice – they are way uglier than that! And I never thought I would say that about a Ducati who are usually the kings of style.

    There will always be something romantic and cool about an Italian engine! I love my HD’s, but a Duc is a fun ride that also commands alot of attention.

    May we put this on record ?

    Doc Robinson, just said that Ducati is the King ! of style. Sorry Willie I believe he is serious.

    Harley Davidson has made some of the best looking bikes in the world called MV Agusta.

    But first they fired the designer who by the way designed probably the best known Ducati, the 916 . Then gave the company away. OH well !

    Sorry Doc , I had to call you on the ” Neggative ” statement.

    But I guess we are all guilty at times, Right?

    The new Ducati street fighter is probably my next bike purchase. Simply awesome.
