Ducati has revealed the sportier and even more fun-to-ride Monster SP edition of its naked motorcycle at the Ducati World Premiere. This model is characterized by a series of high-quality components that make the bike even lighter, more effective and fun in sporty riding, as well as more aggressive from an aesthetic point of view.
Ducati Monster SP Edition features fully adjustable Ohlins suspension, with the fork 0.6 kg lighter than the one used on the Monster and Monster Plus, increasing the feeling, as well as the ground clearance and consequently the lean angle.
The brakes have been upgraded to Brembo Stylema calipers and aluminium flanges for the 320 mm front brake discs (0.5 kg lighter than the Monster equipment) making the Monster SP more performing when braking.
The general lightening of the bike also comes with the adoption of a lithium-ion battery, which brings the overall weight saving to about 2 kg. The sporting potential of the Monster SP is further enhanced by the steering damper.
In addition, the electronics see a general recalibration of all the Riding Modes, and therefore of all the electronic controls, to make the most of the changes made to the chassis, and the arrival of the new Riding Mode Wet, designed to offer greater safety on the bikes on wet surfaces.
The Ducati Monster SP will arrive in dealerships starting from January 2023. It will have a livery that incorporates the 2022 colours of the Ducati Lenovo Team’s Desmosedici GP.
