The Monster range grows with the SP version, designed to enhance fun, thanks to technical equipment perfect for those who love sporty riding and embellish style with the Moto GP-inspired livery.
The Monster SP takes the 2022 colors of the official team's Desmosedici GP, mounts the Öhlins NIX30 fork and Termignoni homologated silencer, Brembo Stylema® front calipers and Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tires. True supersport equipment that will make you fall in love with the new Monster SP. Are you ready for more?
SUSPENSION: The fully adjustable Öhlins suspension, with the fork 1.3 lb lighter than that adopted on Monster and Monster +, increases the feel, as well as increasing ground clearance and consequently the lean angle.
BRAKING SYSTEM: Also in this direction, the upgrading of the braking system with Brembo Stylema® calipers and aluminum flanges for the 320 mm front brake discs (1.1 lb lighter than the Monster equipment) makes the Monster SP more performing when braking, but, at the same time, more agile thanks to the reduction of inertia at the front.
LITHIUM-ION BATTERY: The general lightening of the bike also comes with the adoption of a lithium-ion battery, which brings the overall weight saving to about 4.4 lb in running order compared to the standard model, already a benchmark in the category for lightness, despite the addition of components such as the steering damper and the windshield.
STEERING DAMPER: The sporting potential of the Monster SP is further enhanced by the steering damper, which improves stability under acceleration and cornering, as well as by the presence as original equipment of Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tires, the manufacturer's flagship proposal for sporty riding on the road.
ELECTRONICS AT THE TOP OF THE SEGMENT: Standard equipment includes ABS Cornering, Ducati Traction Control, Ducati Wheelie Control, all adjustable to different levels of intervention. The sporty character of the Monster is also emphasized by Launch Control, which ensures lightning-fast starts. This top-of-the-line motorcycle equipment allows the Monster to safely express its performance. Sport, Road and Wet Riding Modes allow you to mold the character of the Monster according to your tastes and needs. Everything is easily managed through the handlebar controls and the 4.3-inch color TFT dashboard.
DUCATI TRACTION CONTROL: Traction control is an intelligent system that acts as a "filter" between the accelerator and the rear tire. The system allows a choice of eight different levels of intervention. The traction control levels are preset for each of the three Riding Modes, but can be customized to suit the rider and road characteristics, as well as for other electronic driving aid systems.
LAUNCH CONTROL: The Monster SP is equipped with a Launch Control system that enables incredibly efficient starts. The system once "armed" autonomously manages the engine revs (whatever the throttle grip is opened) and leaving the rider with only the task of managing the clutch at the start. A "drag race" proof mode that allows the best possible acceleration.
DUCATI WHEELIE CONTROL: Wheelie Control allows the motorcycle maximum acceleration by eliminating or limiting wheelie phenomenon. This provides a high level of safety while ensuring the best acceleration performance. Wheelie control can be adjusted to several levels independently of the other controls.
DUCATI QUICK SHIFT UP/ DOWN: The Ducati Quick Shifer (DQS) up/down is an electronic shift assist system that allows gear engagement without the need to pull the clutch either up or downshifting. This system not only makes sporty riding more fun, but is also a valuable aid in city traffic and on winding roads that require frequent use of the transmission.
PIRELLI DIABLO ROSSO IV TIRES: The Monster SP rides on Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tires, the industry benchmark for sporty road riding. The wheels lightened by 3.7 lb compared to those on the 821 and are made of light alloy have sizes 3.50x17" and 5.50X17".
HYDRAULIC CLUTCH: The slipper clutch that equips the Monster SP works in an oil bath, and thanks to a special servo system it manages to be very smooth to operate. Thanks to the hydraulic control, it is extremely "light" to operate (-20% effort compared to the Monster 821).
SADDLE HEIGHT: The Monster SP's seat height from the ground is 840 mm. This, combined with the bike's narrow sides, means that you can put your feet on the ground very easily.
FRAME: The Front Frame is inspired by that of the Panigale V4. Made of aluminum, it is 9.9 lb lighter than the Monster 821's trellis frame, a 60 percent lightening that contributes to the bike's overall lightness.
