Spy Shots: The 2009 Ducati Monster 1100

Posted in Motorcycle, Sportbikes by Vito Rispo | September 16th, 2008 | 4 Responses |

Here they are, the world’s first pictures of the 2009 Ducati Monster 1100 that only recently hit the internet. We all knew Ducati wouldn’t go too long without updating it’s Monster line, and now here it is.

It looks like the bike keeps its dry-clutch, and the instrumentation is digital just like the 690cc. The 2009 Ducati Monster 1100 is basically a 696 with the 1100CC DS engine installed.
Check out all 3 full-sized spy shots after the jump.

It also sports Y-spoke wheels and a single sided swingarm from the Ducati Hypermotard. Radial front brake and clutch reservoirs, and maybe improved Brembo radial mount brakes would mean massive stopping power. Expect the Monster 1100 to be officially unveiled at the 2008 EICMA show in November.

    My 05 S4R which is a 996 motor has about 120hp and 80 Torque and the current S4R Monsters with the 998 Motor has about 130 hp.

    If this is going to replace te current Monsters It better have more than 95bhp and 76 torque. Those numbers do not seem right at all.

    It seems like a great idea to me, the monster saved Ducati so I think this will be a hit.

    I have one of these puppies and what a great almost perfect bike. 373 lbs of agile bike with a nice cracking engine powering it in and out of a sweet curve.
    The idea of a 120+HP naked bike (S4R, S4RS) while attractive to our need for speed (and more) is counter-intuitive. 200KMH without a windscreen… no thanks. moreover, the power is underutilized in any interesting roads. straight, flat for 15-30 minutes on a S4R. fine. otherwise go get a sportbike.
