Ducati will be unveiling the 2012 Monster 1100 EVO at the New York International Motorcycle Show (IMS). This new model will be the new flagship for the air-cooled Monster family and sales will begin in the Summer 2011 at a price of $11,995.
The 2012 Ducati Monster 110 EVO is powered by a 100 HP Desmodue Evoluzione engine - the most powerful air cooled Ducati ever. The new 1100 EVO is offered with the new "Ducati Safety Pack", a simple and effective combination of adjustable Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and ABS brakes designed to aid rider safety. Also the new APTC wet clutch which ensures quiet operation and long life will be on the equipment list.
The new APTC wet clutch works with a race-like ‘slipper’ system which reduces the destabilizing effect of the rear-end under aggressive down-shifting, and compared with other wet clutch used so far by Ducati, features an additional cush-drive damper mechanism which smoothes the repeated transition from drive to over-run during stop-start traffic.
