Are you ready for more?

Dedicated Sports Equipment

  • The golden Öhlins NIX30 fork enhances the sporty look of the new Monster SP. Together with Termignoni’s homologated silencer and Brembo Stylema® front callipers, they make up the valuable technical equipment capable of making the bike lighter, more effective and fun in sporty riding, as well as more aesthetically appealing.

MotoGP inspired livery

  • The livery, which incorporates the 2022 colours of the factory team’s Desmosedici GP, reinforces the sporty nature of the new Monster SP. The Ducati lettering on the tank is reminiscent of the graphics on the Panigale V4. The red-coloured seat complements the side view of the tail with the Monster SP logo and the Italian flag on the passenger seat cover.

Electronics recalibrated for better track performance

  • The electronic sector of Monster is at the top of the segment. The standard equipment includes ABS Cornering, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Wheelie Control, all adjustable to various levels of intervention. The new Monster SP’s sporty character is underlined by the Launch Control, which ensures lightning-fast starts. This top-of-the-range motorcycle equipment allows the Monster SP to express its full performance safely.

Performance and fun with the Testastretta 11° engine

  • The Monster’s heart is the Testastretta 11° engine, a liquid-cooled 4-valve twin with 111 hp and desmodromic distribution.

Sportier. Funnier.

  • The Monster represents all the essence of Ducati in the most compact, essential and lightweight form possible. Precise in corners. Stable in straight lines. With the SP version, you can enjoy more effective sports riding thanks to the absolute top-notch technical equipment such as Öhlins suspension, Brembo Stylema® front callipers, Termignoni homologated silencer, Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tires, steering damper and lithium battery.

Suspension

  • The fully adjustable Öhlins suspension, with the fork 0.6 kg lighter than that adopted on Monster and Monster +, increases the feel, as well as increased ground clearance and consequently the lean angle.

Braking system

  • The upgrading of the braking system with Brembo Stylema® callipers and aluminium flanges for the 320 mm front brake discs (0.5 kg 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 2 kg 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.

  • Displacement:937 cc (57 cu in)
  • Power:111 hp (82 kW) @ 9,250 rpm
  • Torque:9.5 kgm (93 Nm, 69 lb-ft) @ 6,500 rpm
  • Dry Weight:166 kg (366 lb)
  • Seat Height:840 mm (33.1 in)
  • 850 mm (33.5 in) with high seat accessory

Electronics at the top of the segment

  • Standard equipment includes ABS CorneringDucati Traction Controland Ducati Wheelie Control, all adjustable to different levels of intervention. The sporty character of the new Monster is also emphasized by Launch Control, which ensures lightning-fast starts. This top-of-the-line motorcycle equipment allows the Monster to express its performance safely. 
  • SportRoad and Wet Riding Modes allow you to mould the Monster’s character according to your tastes and needs. Everything is easily managed through the handlebar controls and the 4.3-inch colour 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 and other electronic driving aid systems.

Launch Control

  • The new Monster SP has a Launch Control system that enables incredibly efficient starts. Once “armed”, the system autonomously manages the engine revs (whatever the throttle grip is opened) and leaves 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 maximum motorcycle acceleration by eliminating or limiting the wheelie phenomenon. It provides a high level of safety while ensuring the best acceleration performance. You can adjust the wheelie control to several levels independently of the other controls.

Ducati Quick Shift up/ down

  • The Ducati Quick Shifter (DQS) up/down is an electronic shift assist system that allows gear engagement without pulling 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 winding roads that require frequent use of the transmission.

Components

Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV Tyres

  • The Monster SP rides on Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV tyres, the industry benchmark for sporty road riding. The wheels are light alloy sizes 3.50×17″ and 5.50X17″.

Hydraulic Clutch

  • The slipper clutch that equips the Monster SP works in an oil bath, and thanks to a particular servo system, it can be very smooth to operate. Thanks to the new 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 you can put your feet on the ground. A seat that reduces the ground clearance to 810 mm is available as an accessory while maintaining good padding.

Frame

  • The Front Frame takes inspiration from the Panigale V4. Made of aluminium, it is 4.5 kg lighter than the Monster 821’s trellis frame, a 60 per cent lightening that contributes to the bike’s overall lightness.

The new Ducati Monster SP is also available in a 35 kW version rideable with an A2 license.
