The above decks out the Monster’s iconic 11° Testastretta heart, beating to the tune of 111hp @ 9.250rpm, with 68.7lb-ft of additional yank @ 6.500rpm. Ducati’s press release also tells us that they kept the original aluminum front chassis and GFRP subframe, complete with an aluminum swingarm.
For electronic aids, the Monster 30th Anniversario continues to carry the up/down Ducati Quick Shift (DQS), as well as a 3-level Cornering ABS, an 8-level DTC, and DWC (4 levels).
