2014 Ducati Monster 1200 S – First Ride Review

A minimal trellis frame bolts directly to the Testastretta’s cylinder heads as does the subframe and shock. The 11° DS (dual spark plug) engine boasts new spray targeting of fuel into the air/fuel mixture and larger, 53mm throttle bodies. The 1200 Monster’s version of the same engine used in the Multistrada has a higher compression ratio (12.5:1 vs 11.5:1) via taller piston crowns, and round throttle bodies whereas the Multi’s are elliptical. The Multistrada, however, claims slightly higher hp and torque figures at higher revs.
