2012 Ducati Diesel Monster | Quick Look

2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO

No, it’s not a diesel-powered Ducati Monster. This newest Monster is the 1000 EVO with livery inspired by Diesel, a leading fashion clothing designer.

Underneath the cool “urban military chic” appearance, as Ducati describes it, it’s still the 100 horsepower, air-cooled, two-valve naked bike we all know and love.

The low-slung dual exhausts on the right side give the big Monster a modern look, as do 10-spoke wheels inspired by the Streetfighter and 1198 Superbike. Marzocchi forks and a Sachs shock take care of the suspension, and Brembo brakes slow the 1100 EVO down.
