If there’s one thing Ducati’s good at doing, (well, besides building motorcycles that is), it’s making the showroom premieres of its newest models an event.
That holds true with the North American dealership premieres of Ducati‘s newest Monster, the flagship of the company’s naked roadster lineup, the Ducati Monster 1100EVO.
The Ducati Monster 1100EVO, now listed as Ducati’s first 2012 model, arrives in participating showrooms across the United States and Canada May 27-28.
The new EVO-lved version of the M1100 is the first air-cooled Ducati to claim over 100hp. The Ducati Monster 1100EVO also got a new tail section, revised suspension, a slipper clutch and the new Ducati Safety Pack (traction control and ABS brakes).
As Pete Brissette writes in his review of the Ducati Monster 1100EVO: “all the updates on the EVO only serve to make a bike we liked before even better.”
The most impressive thing is Ducati has priced the Monster 1100EVO at $11,995, the same MSRP as the 2010 base Ducati Monster 1100.
