2017 Ducati Monster 1200 S
The ultimate streetfighter from the Italian marquee
There is a thing with Ducati and its naked streetfighters. While someone will reckon Ducati for giving us some exciting and legendary faired superbikes like the 999, 1098 and Panigale, it is the range of its streetfighters which have been the easily accessible fun tools for most of the Ducati fans across the world. In the past, the Monster range and Streetfighter sold like hot cakes and played a major role in the expansion of the Ducati family.
Now, as the Streetfighter series has made its way in the books of history, the expectations from the Monster sub-brand have naturally reached a new height. Which is why Ducati refurbished its Monster range by launching an all new middle-weight variant of the motorcycle in the face of Monster 797 as well as a range-topping version in the form of the Monster 1200. But in order to make its roadster platform even more aggressive, Ducati did come up with a fiercer avatar of the Monster 1200. Dubbed as Monster 1200 S, the motorcycle is positioned between the standard Monster 1200 and the most powerful roadster from Ducati ever, the Monster 1200R.
Now, as a periodic ritual of refreshing its models, Ducati recently gave the Monster 1200 S a minor facelift, which has enhanced both the aesthetic appeal as well as performance while on the go. Here’s our take on what all changes make the new Monster 1200 S different from the older one:-Read the full 2017 Ducati Monster 1200 S review
