Ducati Monster 1100
The Monster 1100 design perfectly balances sports performance, riding pleasure and stunning looks. Its seductive line is the product of a Ducati philosophy where form and function combine to create the naked bike par excellence.
Its essential yet painstakingly perfected design is the result of the all-Italian motorcycling tradition of creativity. The new Monster 1100 is the bike for motorcyclists who know exactly what they want and whose lifestyle revolves around their love of riding.
Pure riding pleasure is guaranteed with super-light and agile handling characteristics combined with the exceptional torque of the Desmo engine and the dependable competition-level braking system. The Monster 1100 is more than just a bike, it is an extension of your own personality. The Monster’s essential design and unique sound sets it aside from all others.
Chassis – In Search of the Perfect Corner
At just 169kg (373lb), the Monster 1100 is the lightest bike in its class. The exceptional handling, combined with 10.5kgm (75.9lb-ft) of torque from the Ducati Desmo engine, results in a pure, adrenalin-filled ride.
Every single component has been created to satisfy a Ducati rider’s needs and provide unrivalled agility and handling. That is why Ducati engineers, designers and testers have aimed for the best possible set-up and the Monster is able to ensure the best handling of all naked bikes.
With a 40mm higher ride-height than the 696, the increased ground clearance of the Monster 1100 enables impressive lean angles, letting you explore the sports side of this new naked bike to the full.
The extremely lightweight aluminum alloy five Y-spoke wheels reduce unsprung weight and improve agility. The 3.50×17 front wheel is fitted with a 120/70ZR tire while the rear 5.50×17 wheel has a 180/55ZR. T he result is lightweight, precise steering that is extremely responsive at all speeds while giving the vehicle exceptional stability.
The steering lock has been improved to a considerable 64 degrees overall by using the extra distance allowed by cleverly shaped air ducts in the fuel tank covers which feed the new ten liter airbox. The sports feel of the bike is further accentuated by the new aluminum tapered handlebars.
The 43mm fully adjustable Showa forks and Sachs rising-rate rear suspension unit, with adjustable spring pre-load and return damping, offer sufficient personalization to suit all riding styles and provide that perfect ‘feel’.
Using the proven ‘cantilever’ system, the steeply angled rear unit compresses in a movement non-linear to the rear swingarm radius, thus achieving a progressive action. This enables easy access to the spring pre-load and rebound damping adjuster, while eliminating the weight of the rocker-arm mechanism.
High performance Trellis Frame
The Trellis frame, developed in conjunction with Ducati Corse and using the Desmosedici short frame concept, uses the same tube diameter and thickness as the 1098 R.
The rear subframe is also derived from Desmosedici RR technology using cast aluminum to create a sturdy and yet lightweight structure for rider and passenger. The lightweight Trellis frame not only boasts unequalled rigidity, but its simple and essential lines perfectly link up the aluminum foot peg assemblies and single-sided swingarm in pure Ducati style.
Maximum Control Braking
The power and charisma of the new Monster 1100 can rely upon a best-in-category braking system that provides excellent, precise and controllable braking performance.
The vigorous Brembo system is the direct result of Ducati Corse racing experience, featuring radial pumps with adjustable levers feeding four-piston radial calipers which grip twin 320mm discs. The rear brake uses a 2-piston caliper operating on a 245mm disc.
