The Borgo Panigale also kept on the development of new chassis designs, and the Monster 1200 comes with a small trellis frame with attaches directly to the engine, juts like the rear subframe. The new mill of the Monster 1200 will deliver 135 hp, pretty much what the lower-power mode on the Diavel offers, and 87 ft-lbs (118 Nm), and this means business.

Monster 1200 comes with exhausts similar to that of the Diavel as far as pipes are concerned, and they still look Monster-ish, despite being updated.

Brembo brakes, hydraulic clutch, ride by wire and a TFT display similar to the Panigale, the 2014 Monster 1200 is loaded with modern tech but retains the old-school attire.

The wet weight is 209 kg (461 lbs) and with a 17.5-liter (4.6 US gal) tank, this bike can really go far. Asphalt & Rubber estimates the Monster 1200 price tag around $13,495 (€9,990), which is kind of cool. The 1200S brings in Öhlins suspensions, carbon fiber  trims and 145 hp for an even more extreme riding pleasure.
