This was the band more exclusive Ducati Corse front fender to cover the passenger seat. The result?
An elegant monster, is more exciting than ever.
Desmodue Evoluzione 1100
Style, functionality, performance and security, four words that embody the essence of 1100EVO monster. The development is mainly in the new Desmodue Evoluzione, the first two valve Ducati engine capable of 100 horsepower, but also provide a very smooth power.
The “desmodromic heart” which causes the monster 1100EVO is the result of constant refinement Desmos air-cooled, carefully providing improved combustion air and provide 10.5 kgm of torque at a speed of rotation 6000, provided that acknowledgment of the power supply body across the spectrum from the center of the slots in lower yield exciting range of open route out of town.
Nude. By design
The 1100EVO has been developed according to a “less is more” philosophy, part of the Monster style, from the beginning. What has not changed, however, are the essential lines and seductive: the sides are narrow, tubular chassis steel tube and engages the rear substructure of molten aluminum. Moreover, his “heart desmodromic” proudly on display, the Monster 1100EVO oozes personality like no other.
Even the new exhaust system made its mark, giving the bike an even more fighters: winding collectors say they kiss the right side of the bike before flowering, in bunk beds in silence. In addition to maximizing the power dynamics of the tail and essential Ducati in perfect style. Another sporty touch is added by the 10-spoke wheels.
An emblem of an attractive lifestyle, the Monster 1100EVO is pure pure essence.
Priority No. 1: Safety
Ducati’s commitment to security is stronger than ever. The Monster 1100EVO comes with the package Ducati Safety, a concentrate of a powerful electronic control that increases and improves security, regardless of the situation. The pack includes two complementary systems: the impressive Bosch-Brembo ABS braking system, which guarantees safety, braking under any bond
conditions and traction control (DTC), which makes use of the vast experience of Ducati Corse in the precise, high speed of detection and control of rear wheel slip. DTC helps riders enjoy the pleasures of the mind-blowing Desmodue Evoluzione safely, providing four different control levels for different road conditions and riding styles.

2012 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO Features and Benefits
1100EVO MONSTER – The final monster
The brand new monster 1100EVO takes things Monster family adds new generation and evolution of the updates that have the concept of monster to the next level. Desmodue Evoluzione engine is the first Ducati two-valve engine to hit the 100 hp and delivers ultra-smooth power to delight pilots worldwide.
Add to that a completely redesigned exhaust system can be improved with low-gun style, vertically stacked silencers that leave the queue looking sharp and minimalist, and the introduction of the DSP, which is a new ease of use, 4 levels of DTC supports the ABS for the driver more control, and is easy to see that this is really an “evolution” model. But do not stop there.
Quality by Design
Part of Ducati approach to improving the quality of the mix was the owner of the feedback in the process of designing new models, and 1100EVO monster is a good example. Ergonomics has been completely revised with the addition of a redesigned seat and bar risers 20 mm for the pilot and a rear subframe ready to accept confidence-inspiring Ducati Performance kit grab rails for the passenger, whose comfort is even greater with a low height, baffled exhaust system. Add to these improvements rubber mounted rear indicators and number plate vehicle more compact LED lighting, and it is clear that Ducati has heard all the news
The “less is more ‘philosophy behind all Monsters underlines Ducati In search of truth compact, high-performance bicycles and 169 kg dry weight in the EVO (373 pounds), is the lightest, most compact bike its class.
The Monster 1100EVO is the result of a constant evolution in the design and technology. The powerful and impressive high-end model has an attractive ergonomic design and presents the style and charisma, while preserving the essence of the original concept naked. EVO design perfect balance between sport performance, stunning looks and walks to the safety and enjoyment aware of his seductive lines are the product of a Ducati philosophy where form and function combine to create the ultimate naked bike.
Ducati Safety Pack (DSP)
The Monster 1100EVO is the first model to introduce the new Ducati Safety Pack (DSP), set to tighten control over the lifestyle models of Ducati. DSP system consists of ultra-reliable-Bosch Brembo ABS brakes and new easy to use 4-level Ducati Traction Control (DTC). Both systems are supplied as original equipment and complement each other to provide an important contribution to motorcycle safety.
Accessible from the left panel and displayed on the digital instrumentation, the DTC system offers a choice of four levels, each programmed with an increasing level of interaction ranked from one to four. While level four runs a confidence-building, high level of interaction of the system by activating the least amount of wheel spin, level one offers a lower amount of intervention for the most competent, sport oriented runners. When the level is selected and DTC activated, the level shown in the instrumentation.
Sensors front and rear wheels, then compare speed differential to sense when rear traction is broken (wheel spin) and DTC decides the best combination of two different types of instant electronic adjustment, calculated with data from multiple sources. The first “soft” phase system interaction is performed by software at a high speed that causes the electronic instant adjustment of the ignition, the administration of varying amounts of delay ignition to reduce engine torque.
If the DTC software detects that the first “soft” step system interaction is insufficient to control the slip continues to administer an ignition delay and the instruction of the engine computer to start an injection pattern of ever-increasing cuts until, if the cut is necessary, complete injection. During all stages of the interaction, the two emergency lights – normally used to mean over-rev limiter – lights to indicate that the DTC is applied.
Once the system recognizes the gradual return of equal wheel speeds, gradually restores the normal power supply. This continuous interaction is the key for ultra smooth operation of the system and represents a significant increase in operational safety during mid-corner acceleration.
The Bosch ABS Brembo-developed by Ducati is one of the more sophisticated versions available for motorcycles and combined with high quality components of the braking system to provide exceptional performance and confident control.
Designed to reduce the risk of wheel locking during braking or when braking sharply on low-grip conditions, the system reads the data from the wheel speed sensors detecting wheel locking tonewheel potential. If the differential wheel speed is lower than a specific safety limit, the control unit immediately reduces the braking pressure system in the stirrup suitable for preventing the wheels from locking. Reducing the pressure in each brake circuit is activated by means of electronically controlled valves, which then close the wheel speed differential stage away from a lock.
The Evoluzione Desmodue 1100
The lightweight, L-Twin stands at the height of more than three decades of Desmo air-cooled and the development of its torque power delivery has excited riders worldwide. Its latest development in combination with the capacity of the air box and exhaust setup new Monster is an important milestone for Ducati two-valve per cylinder, as the first to reach 100 horsepower.
The Evoluzione 1100cc power unit Desmodue still uses a bore and stroke of 98 x 71.5mm, but his long list of improvements have increased power to 100 hp (73.5kW) at 7500rpm, with £ 76 feet (10.5kgm) of torque at 6000 rpm which gives the smooth power delivery of the city-like performance at low RPM exhilarating open road to the red line.
The 1100 housing is vacuum cast using the same technology used Vacural ® for Superbike engines, a process that allows a significant weight gain and ensures consistent wall thickness and increased strength. But the covers are only part of evolution. Besides the new magnesium alternator cover, the 1100 now has a lighter crankshaft, with a wheel of 848-style address Superbike and the pursuit of weight reduction, even went so far as the use of magnets lightweight rare earth
The power gains not only of all the new lightweight crankshaft, but also an evolution of high-end power unit Desmodue. The cylinder head, which now has improved lubrication and cooling performance, also has a redesigned inlet port shape for optimum performance and a modified form of the combustion chamber for improved combustion efficiency. This efficiency improvement is the result of increasing the compression ratio of 10.7 to 11.3:1 and switch to a single spark plugs per cylinder, now managed by Siemens high speed electronics.
Ensuring adequate food and the maximum volumetric efficiency higher compression implementation is a 5% increase in the elevation of the intake valves and 4% of the exhaust gases with activated safety system only Ducati desmodromic. where the closing of the valve is mechanically actuated. At high rpm it would be almost impossible for the valve to follow the strong closing profile of the cam lobe if it were based on the standard valve springs.
With the Desmo system the valve is closed mechanically with the same precision that open, allowing steep cam profiles and radical cam schedule. This system is used on every single Ducati power unit, including race and superbike engine Desmosedici MotoGP winners.
The Monster 1100EVO clutch uses a new style of shoe specially designed for “wet” clutches of larger capacity engines. It has an oil bath system with “slipper” function and super touch of the lever. The design uses a self-servo mechanism progressively pressing the plates together when under the action of the motor, allowing the reduction of clutch spring rates.
The result is a clutch lever on the handlebars much lighter, ideal in traffic or on long trips. When the motor is reversed (in time), the same mechanism that reduces the stress on the clutch plates, allowing them to offer a race-type “slipper” action that reduces the destabilizing effect of the back-drop aggressive category and a much smoother feeling when closing the throttle or slow down in normal driving.
An additional mechanism Cus-soft cushioning disc also repeated passage more difficult to run during start and stop traffic. Covers the clutch and alternator are finished in carbon gray looking sophisticated.
