Report: 2009 Ducati 1100S

Today, ducatinewstoday the Ducati Monster 1100S. Is the big engined desmodue Monster the streetbike or is 95 bhp not enough in the modern of 180bhp superbikes? Read on to out!

I took advantage of the Duc being in the Atlanta area to the new Ducati Monster 1100S at NPR When I arrived a shiny of delectable Ducati delights and, without hesitation, I for the newly released red Monster The new Monster is based on the 696 chassis last year and blends of the old Monster’s styling with a more modern design and a wheelbase.

The first thing you is just how light (at 168kg, and short the bike is compared to the generation Monster’s. You sit well and the bike seems to disappear you as you look forward. You can’t see any of the unless you look down to see the instrument pod.

The riding position is still sporty than a typical but far more comfy than a racing tuck and with of a need for the gorilla arm stretch Monster riders have accustomed to.

My bike was fitted the optional Ducati Performance slip on exhaust system with a vented clutch and a smattering of pretty carbon and responded to the starter with a bark from the twin carbon cans. While the was colder there was a quite off idle flat spot blunted throttle response but it as the engine warmed.

The desmodue engine has reached and delivers a smooth, unintimidating of torque from as little as rpm. The engine will smoothly and quite strongly this level in 6th gear, the bike with a relaxed, going persona when or whiling away the time on a lane. However raise the a little and the 1,078cc twin pulling strongly from up before the ECU kills the fun at a fairly low rpm with its abrupt cut-out.

the expectation for a large air-cooled to have a wide powerband the Monster actually requires fleet footwork in the twisties, serious thrust is concentrated in a 3,000 rpm band. At a more pace, it simple doesn’t what gear you are in but be prepared to row the feeling, 6-speed box if you are hauling.

The Monster steers directly and the Ohlins suspension on the S model up bumps admiredly and providing chassis control without the for a firm choppy ride. in is faster than the old Monster and it is to correct the line mid corner if the arises. The brakes on my bike, too much of a squeeze to generate power and were a little in feel.

However I have with enough radial setups to pass this off as the of this particular example than a problem with the range per se.

95 horsepower is truly than enough in the real and a skillful rider would be able to hang with about anything down favorite piece of twisty Riding the Monster brought a to my face because you can enjoy cruising along at 65mph in enjoying the ride without that the bike would to be cutting a lap for pole position. is an important feature to consider you contrast what riding the sportsbike is like, most of the out of its element.

Yet despite this clear argument, I couldn’t quite but feel that I would it if the bike had a wilder side could be tapped into time to time. At US$13,995 for the S (the base model is at $11,995) I would prefer the to another 20 horsepower for the not inconsiderable price, even if in reality it rarely be needed or utilized.

In the end, the new Monster brings the into the 21st century destroying the essence of the brand If you want a stylish, … to ride on real roads, the Monster 1100S should be on your consideration list.
