New Year arrivals for Monster 1100S and 1198

The new flagship Monster and 1198 has now arrived at dealerships throughout the UK.

Ducati UK is pleased to announce that the new Ducati Monster 1100S and 1198S have arrived at all 31 Ducati dealerships throughout the UK. The Monster 1100 and 1198 hailed throughout the media since their respective launches are now available to test ride at Ducati outlets nationwide.

The arrival of the new 1100 S is the latest addition to the successful Monster family that includes the Monster 696, the quickest selling Monster in UK history, and the new 1100S and soon to follow ‘standard’ 1100 are expected to follow in a similar vein.



The Monster family redefines the naked sector and reinforces its claim as a design icon unmatched by its competitors and dedicated to those who want the ultimate expression of style and performance.

The new bike fuses MotoGP technology with the Desmosedici RR inspired rear subframe and the traditional characteristics of the 95hp two-valve 1100cc Desmodromic twin-cylinder engine. With its new single-sided aluminum swingarm, high level of componentry, race-oriented chassis and 15 years of evolution, the Monster 1100 now takes its place at the head of the Monster family.



The 1198 takes over from the incredibly successful 1098 that won awards and broke records as the fastest ever selling Ducati in the UK. The 1198 is expected to consolidate the success of Ducati’s aspirational Superbike and has already been acclaimed for its technological innovation and enhanced performance. The 1198S boasts Ducati’s race evolved traction control, Ducati analyzer, an increase in horse power to a powerful 170hp and a dry weight of just 171kg.



The Monster 1100S and 1198S will be on display at the MCN London Motorcycle which takes place at Excel between the 29th January and 1st February. Ducati UK can found on stand number N120.
