What I love about this is it's got exactly the right attitude going down the road. Pretty certain this bike is for me...
Ducati is just months away from unleashing the most powerful Monster ever produced.
Exclusive photographs of the new 2014 model clearly show it’s powered by Ducati’s 1198cc water-cooled V-twin motor, likely to deliver over 150bhp.
This heralds the first significant reworking of the Monster range since the current model range was unveiled in 2008 and will be the most powerful Monster since the nutty S4R and S4RS, first seen in 2004 and 2007 respectively.

Images are trying to hide as much as possible, but it is easy to believe that the new Monster pushed by the liquid-cooled engine will see the birth within the next two years. The prototype is in fact at an advanced stage of development, not too far from its industrialization. The liquid-cooled engine is not new on the Monster . He made his debut in 2001 on the peppery version S4 equipped with the 916 engine with 104 horsepower. In 2003 came the S4R 113 horsepower, which rose to over 130 in 2006 (998 engine).The following year he touched the beautiful S4RS inspire its monsteristi around the world: the power did not change, but came Ohlins suspension and radial calipers. Since 2008, the Monster range has always been combined with the Desmo air-cooled engines . It was a choice essentially commercial , a version with a more powerful engine, liquid-cooled, would surely have cannibalized another bike Ducati branded , the Streetfighter. latter, unlike the glorious Monster S4 and S4RS, never did really break the heart of Ducati. No wonder then the move today for the Borgo Panigale.

The Hypermotard series is growing long in the tooth, and while everyone expects the Ducati’s smaller Superbike to get revamped in 2013, here is some evidence to suggest that the big news at EICMA this year will be an all-new Hypermotard model. Expected to have a water-cooled motor, best guesses would have the new Hypermotard using the 849cc Testastretta power plant, which would dovetail nicely with the supersport-sized Superbike getting an ~800cc variant of the new Superquadro motor.
