2023 Ducati World Premiere, Episode Two: ‘Mad for Fun’

Meet the All-New MotoGP-Inspired Monster SP

Ducati’s just given us Episode 2’s machine for the 2023 Ducati World Premiere – and it’s set to be an absolute monster on the track…

Literally. 

According to Ducati’s press release, the all-new Monster SP has been souped up to ‘SP’ (Sport Production) level, adding accoutrements to make the bike lighter, more responsive, and more versatile to Ducatisti (or should we say ‘Monsteristi’?…).

The list of benefits to Ducati’s newest sporty offering includes a very nice set of Öhlins suspension (NIX30), Brembo Stylema® front calipers, a brilliant Termignoni-approved silencer, and the addition of Pirelli Diablo Rosso IV rubbers, a steering damper, and a quality lithium-ion battery.

All of this complements the bike’s solid, superbike-derived chassis and recalibrated electronics, which now offer ‘Wet’ Ride Mode, as well as Launch Control. 

The Monster SP still works off the trusty Testastretta 11° engine, complete with desmodromic distribution putting the push and yank at 111hp and 16ft-lbs, respectively.
