The Monster SP includes the 2022 colours of the Ducati Lenovo Team’s Desmosedici GP, the golden anodizing of the Öhlins NIX30 fork and the presence of a Termignoni approved silencer as standard. High-quality details are the red saddle, the Monster SP logo on the passenger seat cover and the Ducati logo on the fuel tank, larger and inspired by the Panigale V4 graphics.



The fully adjustable Öhlins suspension is 0.6kg lighter at the front than the one used on the Monster and Monster + and increases the ground clearance and lean angle. The suspension system can also count upon a sportier setup, which improves the ride on the rack as well as on the road.



The braking system has been upgraded with Brembo Stylema calipers and aluminium flanges for the 320mm front brake discs (0.5kg lighter than the Monster). The general lightening of the bike also comes with the adoption of a lithium-ion battery, which brings the overall weight saving to about 2kg in running order compared to the standard model, despite the addition of components such as the steering damper and the windshield.
