Rightfully called a monster, the Ducati Monster 1200 R takes the monster model and runs with it. At first glance, you know its a Ducati not only by the text along various areas of the bike, but by the distinguishable headlight that sits right below the handle bars.
The body is aggressive with striking Ducati Red panels (or Thrilling Black for those who prefer a more subtle bike) and sporty lines that make this bike look fierce and intimidating. Dark chrome frame and wheels add to the monstrous aesthetic of the bike.
What may surprise some riders is that the Ducati Monster 1200 R is a lightweight, compact bike that is designed to help maneuver your way with precision whether you’re on a track or swerving and slicing your way through traffic and street corners. The “R” engine is an upgraded 1.2 liter Testastretta two-cylinder engine with 160 hp and 97 lb-ft of torque, making this the most powerful bike Ducati has ever produced. Talk about power for this monster bike.
