The current top of the Monster chain is the 1200R – here’s your change to get a basically-new example at a hefty discount!
Check out this Cycle World review if you need a refresher on the 1200 R, the most powerful naked bike that Ducati had made at the time – it’ll be overshadowed by the upcoming Streetfighter V4. The seller is friend of Bike-urious John B, who recently acquired a XR750 we featured and was kind enough to share his story.
As you can see from the background of the above photo, John’s into Ducatis. Speaking of the new Streetfighter V4, that’s what John just ordered himself so this Monster 1200R has to go. It has just 388 miles and it comes with an R&G tail tidy as well as a Termi exhaust with the corresponding ECU map. The stock exhaust is no longer available – amusingly, John said it “was so horrendous [he] put it in the trash.”
Find this Monster for sale in Rumson, New Jersey with bidding up to $5,000 and the reserve not yet met here on Iconic Motorbike Auctions.
