DU­CATTI’S NEW MON­STER

The Witness - Wheels - - BIKING - — WR.

DU­CATTI showed its 2016 Mon­ster 1200 R at the Frank­furt Mo­tor Show.

The R boasts su­per­bike per­for­mance lev­els to claim the ti­tle of the most pow­er­ful naked Du­cati. Based on the 1200 S sib­ling, the 1200 R is pow­ered by the R-ver­sion of the Tes­tas­tretta 11 en­gine, mak­ing 120 kW @ 9 250 rpm and 13,4 kgm @ 7 750 rpm. The ex­haust sys­tem is com­pletely new with larger 58 mm ex­haust pipes and a new Euro 4 com­plaint si­lencer. The valves have to be ad­justed ev­ery 30 000 km and the oil changed ev­ery 15 000 km or 12 months, in­creas­ing ser­vice in­ter­vals and cut­ting run­ning costs.
