2012 Ducati Monster 1100EVO revealedTue, 25 Jan 2011
For a naked bike, it’s loaded.
Ducati has unveiled the latest addition to its top-selling Monster range, the 1100EVO, and this street fighter is packed with a list of technical and safety innovations.
The 2012 Monster 1100EVO is the first Ducati to hit 100 hp from an air-cooled engine. It’s reinforced by 76 lb-ft of torque and checks in at a lithe 373 pounds. The power-to-weight ratio is thought to be the best in Monster history.
This flagship motorcycle also gets Ducati’s safety pack, allowing the street fighter a little more altitude in ability. It comes with four-way adjustable traction control and a Bosch-Brembo antilock-brake system.
The 1100EVO is the spiritual successor to the original Monster 900, which debuted in 1993. This new speed demon was revealed this month at the New York motorcycle show and will carry an MSRP of $11,995.
