The Monster 1200 S Is Back Again For 2021 – In North America
Similar to the base model Monster 1200, the Monster 1200 S is also available as part of the 2021 Ducati line-up. These models are only available in regions that aren’t required to follow European emissions directives. So, for riders in the United States and Canada who want another chance at buying the top-spec, heavy-weight Monster, now’s the time to buy this legendary Ducati motorcycle.
Like the other rollover models from the Italian manufacturer, the Monster 1200 S receives no updates for the new year. But that’s not bad news. The Monster 1200 S is still an up-to-date motorcycle with plenty of exciting equipment. The engine remains the same, with power being provided by the usual 1,198cc liquid-cooled Testastretta twin-cylinder engine that delivers 147 horses and 91 lb-ft of peak torque.
What elevates the S model over the regular 1200 is the addition of fully-adjustable Öhlins suspension, an advanced racing brake system, 3-spoke Y-rims, carbon fiber parts, and an LED DRL. Aside from those additions, the Ducati Monster 1200 S is the same as the base model, but with a new exclusive color option.
For 2021, the new Monster 1200 S is available in two color options: the new Black on Black sports livery or classic Ducati Red.
The 2021 Ducati Monster 1200 S starts at $17,595 USD / $20,195 CAD.
