he new Monster incorporates the very latest innovative Ducati technologies, including the famous Ducati branded Riding Modes. The three Riding Modes (URBAN, TOURING, SPORT) are enabled by combining class-leading technologies such as: Ride-by-Wire (RbW), Ducati Traction Control (DTC), multi-calibration 9MP ABS and the graphics on the instrument panel. The rider can change the character of the bike by selecting from the left-hand switchgear - even while riding - among three different pre-set configurations (Riding Modes) that best adapt to the riding style or riding conditions. The Riding Modes make it possible to instantly modify the power delivered by the engine (RbW), the activation levels of DTC and ABS, and the graphics on the instrument panel. The Riding Modes are factory pre-set in each of the three parameters, but can be individually customised and saved to suit the rider. A "default"option is available to easily return all settings to factory pre-sets.
Thanks to a dedicated air intake and exhaust the second generation Testastretta 11° DS delivers engine power comparable to 3/4-cylinder engines, even higher for the "S" , and an incredibly torquey character that will be appreciated by the most demanding "Monsteristi" and sport riders; more than the 85% of the maximum torque is already available at 4,500 rpm. Both of the two Testastretta 11° DS versions offer a wide spread of torque, of course the "S" engine remains strong through a wider rev-range.
