The Monster SP version gets a whole host of mechanical changes to suit its track-focused character, including a fully adjustable Ohlins suspension, Brembo Stylema calipers and a homologated Termignoni slip-on exhaust.

The Monster SP comes shod with the Pirelli Diablo Rosso 4 tires same as on the recently launched Ducati Streetfighter V2. Moreover, the bike has tipped the scales at 186kg fully fueled up.

The Ducati Monster SP also gets different riding modes such as Sport, Road and Wet riding modes. The rest of the electronics remains the same as standard.

Ducati has adorned the higher spec version of the Monster with a paint scheme borrowed from its MotoGP bikes, a red sear and red accents on the front fender and wheels, The Monster SP also comes standard with the biking fairing, which is an optional extra on the standard Monster.

The aluminium alloy front frame is carried over from the standard bike. The internal as well as final drive ratios on the gearbox are the same as well. While the brake calipers are more premium Brembo Stylema units compared to the 4.32 monoblocs on the standard Monster, the actual brake discs are the same in size at 320mm.
