Ducati Monster 1200 25th Anniversario Unveiled | Limited to 500
Ducati has just unveiled a special 25th anniversary Ducati Monster 1200, which has been introduced to celebrate 25 years of the Ducati Monster. The 25th Anniversary Ducati Monster 1200 features an Italian flag paint job inspired by the 2008 Monster S4RS Testastretta Tricolore and a special embroidered seat amongst other customised details.
The trellis frame gets a gold coloured paint, as does the forged Marchesini wheels. The bike also gets other machined aluminium bits, including the mirrors, frame plugs, handlebar end weights, and fuel filler cap. The front and rear mudguards, exhaust heat shield and keyhole cover are finished in carbon fibre. Customers will also get a special cover, decorated with the 25th anniversary logo.
The engine continues to be the 1,198 cc, Testastretta L-Twin producing 147 bhp and a maximum torque of 124 Nm. The Monster 1200 comes with three riding modes - Sport, Touring and Urban, and the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) which provides information to the Bosch Cornering ABS and Ducati Wheelie Control.
The dashboard is a full-colour TFT panel which provides information allowing the rider to easily adjust the settings on each electronic rider aid. The tubular steel trellis frame and single-sided aluminium swingarm are paired with fully adjustable Ohlins suspension, as well as Ohlins steering damper.
This special edition Monster 1200 will be limited in numbers, with only 500 being produced.
