The new Ducati Monster 821/1200 S Stripe 2015. Two new Monster-top models with cool racing look. After the Ducati Monster 1200 S, as expected, was well received by the audience with her typical monster design, a visually hardly changed smaller version was filed with the Monster 821st Well, it was probably time again to expand the Monster program upwards - Monster 1200 S and Monster 821 get new top models called Stripe.
This is a bad news for all Ducati Monster fans: by the appearance of the new Scrambler now falls the smallest monster 696er model from the program. Good news for all Ducati Monster fans: Getting into the monster world is now beginning in the potent Monster 821! This fact will be celebrated with a new top model, the Monster 821 Stripe. Visually, it has sent Ducati, with few changes affects the design completely new and sporty. Indeed, it is only a small bikini fairing above the headlamp and the white paint stripe that runs from the front to the rear over the entire Monster 821 Stripe - and you have a new top model!
Monster 821 Stripe - fully adjustable fork
However, it was technically created deliberately and decisively Hand: The front fork Sachs is now different from the conventional Monster 821 fully adjustable. Thus the stripe can now be better tailored to personal tastes and sporting desires - because with the Testastretta-V2-engine with 112 hp surprisingly good performance figures are possible. When it comes to electronics, everything remains unchanged, since Ducati had but already no slouch: Adjustable ABS, adjustable traction control DTC and Riding Modes are standard on board.
Monster 1200 S Stripe - sharper optics
However, the Monster 821 Stripe is not the only monster-top model that takes the stage, the Monster 1200 S now gets an even better stripe set model's nose. The difference from the small 821 is that in the large stripe technically touched nothing, is it carved optically even more on the plaster. In addition to the jaunty bikini fairing and the typical, from cover to cover solid white stripes on the red paint has the Monster 1200 S Stripe even a noble Carbon engine cover and once again integrated into the rear number plate.
Brachilaler engine and Ohlins suspension - hardly room for improvement
However, this the bearing, mounted on the rocker solution is optically not after, but it comes from the Ducati own design department "Ducati Performance". But that nothing has been technically modified should not great bother the large stripe has just as the Monster 1200 S an extremely potent, yet well-controlled V2 engine with 145 hp and a fully adjustable suspension from Ohlins - components that are difficult without significant can improve cost explosion. About the prices of the two Monster Stripe models speaks Ducati incidentally still nothing concrete, manageable changes by the cost but are only slightly above those of the previous top models.
