It was 23 years ago when the first Ducati Monster was being presented at the Cologne Exhibition. The M900. The design of the first Monster was back then and is today just revolutionary. Naked. With a grid-pipe-frame. Bursting with self-confidence. In the year 2016 Ducati adds another model to the Monster family. And not just any model - the top model. The Ducati Monster 1200R.

According to Ducati the new Monster should complete the product line as a sport-oriented naked bike. The three 1200 models share the same Testastretta 11° engine, but differ in technical specifications. The standard model features 135 bhp and 118 Nm torque, the 1200 S has 145 bhp and 125 Nm and the top of the engines in the new Monster has 160 bhp and 131 Nm torque. That sounds promising.

The service intevals of the new Monster is 15.000 kilometers for services and 30.000 for valve clearance controls. The same holds for the smaller 821 engines.

Besides enormous performance statements the 1200 R also comes with some electronical helpers. DSP (Ducati Safety Pack), obligatory ABS, Ducati Traction Control and Ducati Riding Modes. The latter let the driver choose between three driving modes. Behind the scenes, the optimal mix between performance unfolding, ABS and traction control is being combined - Urban, Touring and Sport.

KAWASAKI H2 SX – QUICKLY AT FULL BLAST

Published by MOTORRADMAGAZIN - Clemens Kopecky at February 19, 2018 in Reviews
A motorcycle is only fast enough when you are standing in front of it and are afraid to get on. I personally am sincerely convinced of that. Because in addition to many practical, clever arguments, by means of which one tries to be convincing in a conversation with critics of the motorized two-wheeler, one particular property certainly makes motorcycles incredibly desirable to me: the sheer unreasonableness of their existence.

HONDA GOLD WING 2018 REVIEW – ON SHINY WINGS

Published by MOTORRADMAGAZIN at January 26, 2018 in Reviews
The Honda developers were not to be envied in the past. They built the most comfortable motorbike of all time and won many supporters - but also earned slander. The critics said, the Wing wasn’t a motorbike and instead of driving that, you could go by car. But most of that criticism came from bikers, who never sat on a Gold Wing before...

GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN PT. 1 - AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT GOT CURVY

Published by RISER AMBASSADOR GINA DREWES at January 24, 2018 in Articles
When I inherited a HD Sportster XL 1200 built in 1997 2 years ago, I finally had a real hobby for the first time in my life. My new, old, well-kept treasure was usually moved straight ahead or at most maneuvered through long curves. The 'pretty Lola', as I call my Sporty is cumbersome and also I'm a chicken when it gets curvy.So it's time for a 'Face Your Fear' turn training and my 'therapist' and pacemaker Flo drives ahead with his Ducati Monster, which is faster and much more agile...
