The essential look of the Dark version S2R comes from its understated classic matte black finish and traditional steel handlebars. Those who want to enter the Monster universe with a bigger bang, in terms of both styling and performance, need look no further than the S2R.
As the years have gone by and the Monster phenomenon grows, the family has also evolved and extended to include a “street fighter” philosophy. The more aggressive Monster SR bikes were born, with a meaner, more modern look, a more sports-style chassis and a higher level of performance.
Its air-cooled 803 cc L-twin engine strikes a perfect balance between peak power and torque. It delivers sports-level performance, yet is balanced, reliable and easy to tame, thanks in part to the racing-derived electronic fuel injection system.
This entry-level, high performance Monster also features the exclusive APTC system, which ensures maximum safety on the hardest rides as a result of the slipper-clutch action when down-changing. The system also makes city riding much more comfortable because of the extremely light clutch lever action.
And good news for European riders under 21 and those who have had a motorcycle license for less than two years: a 25 kw power limited version that complies with the European Commission standards allows new riders the chance to experience Monster style and performance.
