EICMA 2010: Ducati Monster 1100 EVO

Monster gets Evoluzione treatment

By Motorcycle.Com Staff, Nov. 01, 2010
Ducati unveiled a new EVO version of the Monster 1100 at its presentation ahead of the 2010 EICMA show in Milan, Italy.

Revealed alongside the Diavel cruiser, the 2011 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO adds a number of updates including ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Data Acquisition.

The twin underseat exhausts on the original Monster 1100 have been swapped for a side-mounted setup. According to Ducati, the Monster 1100 EVO has a peak output of 100hp at 7500rpm, (up 5hp) while torque peaks at 76 ft-lb. at 6000rpm (unchanged from the 2010 Ducati Monster 1100).

The Ducati Monster 1100 EVO gets a power upgrade, ABS, and traction control.

Up front, the EVO version uses a fully adjustable Marzocchi fork, compared to the 2010 Monster 1100s Showa fork and the Monster 1100S Ohlins suspension. At the rear is a Sachs monoshock with adjustable preload and rebound, like the Monster 1100.

The Monster 1100 EVO comes standard with ABS (they were offered as optional add-ons for the Monster 1100 and 1100S).

Other updates include new, lighter 10-spoke wheels, and slightly revised ergonomics. The Monster 1100 EVO has a claimed weight of 373 pounds, compared to the 377 pounds on the ABS-equipped 2010 Monster 1100 and 374 pounds on the Monster 1100S.

Perhaps the most noticeable change is the side-mounted canisters instead of the underseat exhaust system found on the Monster 1100.
