MY12 Monster 1100 Evo

The last of the air-cooled Monsters

The Monster 1100 Evo is a bike that is easily over-looked. Arriving in 2012, it replaced both the Monster 1100 and Monster 1100S and was effectively a stop-gap model before the all-new liquid-cooled Monster 1200 arrived in 2014. Still powered by an air-cooled motor, the Evo shared most of its components with the older Monster 1100 model but added a bit of new tech in the shape of traction control as standard as well a change from Showa to Marzocchi forks, a tweaked engine and a side-mounted exhaust. Although generally lumped in the same class as the Monster 1100, the Evo is a subtly enhanced machine and given the choice, is the better model to go for in the used market. Not only that, it is the last of the big-capacity air-cooled Monsters, which are still sadly missed by many fans of Ducati’s naked bike.

If you are considering buying an old-school Monster, the 1100 Evo is the bike to get. The V-twin motor is an absolute beauty with bags of performance and lots of spirit and its chassis is also excellent. Although undeniably lacking a bit of kerb appeal due to the fact there isn’t an S model, the Monster 1100 Evo is arguably the best air-cooled Monster the firm has ever built, is very reliable due to its basic nature and its side-mounted pipe is less ugly than its predecessor’s clunky underseat items. This Monster 1100 Evo has done less than 1,500km per year since new and has been equipped with a tank pad, tail tidy, rizoma handlebars and an SC project exhaust for a deeper note. Comes with 2 keys, original owners manual and warranty book as well as a code card.
