2014 Ducati Monster 1198 Spied - June 26, 2013, 05:21 PM

logical progression to the Big Monster...


2014 Ducati Monster 1198 Spied








Dennis Chung June 25, 2013 0
The Ducati Monster celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, but it looks like year 21 will be just as important, with the introduction of a new model powered by Ducati‘s liquid-cooled Testastretta 1198cc engine.

No less than three different publications have released spy photos of the new 2014 Ducati Monster today, though the simultaneous timing of article from MCN, Moto.it and Motociclismo.it would indicate some coordination from Ducati’s PR machine.

Official details are, of course, unavailable, but the photos do provide quite a bit of information.

Clearly visible despite the swirly camo is the radiator, suggesting this will be the first liquid-cooled Monster since the S4R and S4R S. Shots of the right side of the new Monster reveal a single-sided swingarm and Diavel-esque exhaust manifold and a similar stacked dual exhaust setup.

The engine is likely the 1198cc Testastretta 11° V-Twin engine used in the Diavel, so we should expect about 150hp, depending on how Ducati decides to tune the engine.

But where does this leave the Streetfighter? Well the Streetfighter’s days may be numbered. The 1098cc version isn’t even available in Ducati’s 2013 U.S. lineup despite America being Ducati’s biggest market by sales. According to Ducati’s 2012 sales figures, Monster sales outnumbered Streetfighter sales by nearly a 3.5 to 1 margin.

More information should come over the next few months leading up to the 2013 EICMA show in Milan where we expect Ducati will reveal its new Monster.

Just curious... what do you find odd about the ergos? Most people really find them quite comfy.. a good mix between sport and upright.

I have to say that I love the ergos on my Monster 696. I can easily flat-foot it at a stoplight, and I can either "sit up" for, say, when I'm commuting, or lean forward for more aggressive riding through the twisties.

(Source: I'm 5'5" with a 32" inseam, so not the tallest rider out there.)

Its a very natural position, even for a tall guy like myself. I rode to the Adirondacks over the 4 day weekend, I dont think it would have been as comftorable on a FZ8 (very awkward feel) or Street Tripple.

With the stock seat on my 04' monster I would have to agree.

With my sargent seat on my 04' monster I would have to say its quite comfortable.

For me, its was on a S4R, the pegs were too high, and the seat was very low and flat, and the reach to the bars felt a bit unnatural, not as upright as I would like, but not as low / sporty either, made the front end a bit twitchy but that could be just me idk. 6'2 rider, long legs...on a side note, this new one looks...frameless?! anyone? I think the Hypermotard is the one for me

Ahhhhh.... Yeah, they already changed them up from the S4 platform. You are correct in that it made the bike a bit twitchy.. too much rearward weigh bias on the old platform. On the current platform they shifted that so it was just about 50/50 with rider on board. I think you would find the current 1100 MUCH better, and the Hyper even more than that. Come out take the Hyper for a spin!

I assume you're talking about my bike. The clipons sit about 1.5" lower than stock. I had the DP gel seat so the seating position was slightly lower. The pegs are relatively low, but they are further back compared to your 1000rr. You were probably also thrown off by the long tank which takes getting used to. But once you've done a few miles on this bike, it's very comfortable and stable.

When is that? November?? Looking hard at the S4RS being she is still the baddest of the monsters, but if the 1198 monster is going to be the new "king" and came with an S package? I'd wait.

What to get and waiting out my options sucks... They don't get much more sexy than this though IMHO.
