Ducati have unveiled their most powerful Monster to date, the new 1200 R. Just how powerful exactly, well 160hp, which is plenty enough for a naked. Essentially the 1198cc L-twin is a detuned version of the Panigale’s powerplant, allowing for awesome mid-range and lots of wheelie grunt. Additionally the ground clearance has been increased making this the perfect curb hopping machine. You also receive Öhlins suspension and Brembo brakes as found on the Panigale.
This will certainly be a beast to ride, much like the popular KTM 1290 Superduke R.
