Ducati has updated two of its middleweight road offerings, Monster and SuperSport 950 S, with new livery.
Kicking off with Monster and Monster Plus, Iceberg White livery is added to the colour range, the new hue available from midyear.
The latest Monster combines compactness and lightness in a naked sports concept. At its heart is the 83kW/93Nm Euro5 Testastretta 11° engine with three riding modes. Monster is underpinned by a minimalist aluminium Front Frame like that of the Panigale range. Ducati claims a weight loss compared with the previous generation of 18kg overall, remarkable given it was already reasonably lightweight.
Other colours available for the Monster include Ducati Red and Aviator Grey. The new livery is also available for the Plus version, which adds a fairing and passenger seat cover.
The Iceberg White is matched with the contrasting Ducati Red seat finish and there are also red tags on the wheels.
Other Monster features include an 820mm seat height, full LED projector, ABS Cornering, Traction Control and Wheelie Control, a 4.3-inch colour TFT display and Launch Control. Valve clearance checking and adjustment are necessary every 30,000km.
Also gaining a new colourway is Ducati’s beaut all-rounder, the SuperSport 950 S. Dubbed Stripe Livery, the colour scheme includes white, grey and red hues. A Ducati red option remains available.
The sport-tourer is at home on road or track and is aimed at beginners and experienced riders alike. Features include a full-LED headlight, equipped with DRL, a single-sided aluminium swingarm, a height-adjustable screen and a motor much the same as that in the Monster. The SuperSport 950 S gains a fully adjustable Öhlins fork and shock absorber, a passenger seat cover, and Gloss Black rims with red tags.
With electronic aids similar to those of Monster, the SuperSport S adds Ducati Quick Shift up/down as standard.
Multiple accessories are available for both Monster and SuperSport models.
