Since 1993, the Ducati Monster has been one of Italy’s best-selling motorcycles. For 2024-onwards, Ducati has updated the color range of the Monster with the Iceberg White livery, which is added to the Ducati Red and Aviator Grey colors. The new livery is also available for the Plus version, characterized by the addition of a front fairing and passenger seat cover that make the Monster even sportier.
The new livery enhances the essential and clean lines of the Monster thanks to the combination of cold white Iceberg White and Ducati Red chosen for the seat finish; the combination of the two colors creates a refined and contemporary look. A sporty touch is given by the red tags on the wheels.
The Monster makes lightness one of its strengths. Each component has been designed to have the lowest possible weight, from the aluminum front frame to the tail fixed directly to the engine, for an overall weight reduction of 18 kilos vs the previous generation. The result is a nimble and compact motorcycle, capable of moving easily in traffic and at the same time guaranteeing full control in every situation.
The ease of riding the Monster is supported by a comfortable position, designed to make the rider always feel at home. The 820mm seat height and the narrow sides of the bike allow you to rest your feet easily on the ground, while the position of the footrests and handlebars facilitates relaxation of the torso and legs.
The modern and sophisticated design focuses on the essentials and enhances the distinctive features of the Monster. While the front view of the bike is dominated by the full LED projector, the rear instead sees a short and sporty tail, with two painted side panels inspired by the Panigale V4, while the center boasts the Monster’s muscular fuel tank.
Other features include (standard) ABS Cornering, Traction Control and Wheelie Control with adjustable on different levels of intervention and 4.3-inch color TFT display. The sporty nature of the Monster is also enhanced by the presence of Launch Control, which allows MotoGP-style starts.
The engine is a Desmodromic Testastretta 11° twin-cylinder Euro 5 approved, with a 30,000 km valve adjustment interval. The maximum power and torque values are respectively 112 Ps at 9,250 rpm and 93 Nm at 6,500 rpm. Reliable and ready in its power delivery, the Monster's engine can be adapted to the needs of each rider thanks to the three Ducati Riding Modes: Sport, Touring and Urban.
