Ducati unveiled two new bikes destined for dealer showfloors in 2009 ­ the Monster 1100 and 1100 S.

Both bikes are powered by the two-valve 1100cc Desmodromic twin-cylinder engine that delivers 95hp at 7500rpm and 79.5lb-ft of torque at 6000rpm. The Monster 1100 weighs 372 lbs. whereas the Monster 1100 S ­ outfitted with a fully adjustable 43mm titanium nitride coated Öhlins fork; progressive Öhlins rear shock absorber with adjustable pre-load and return damping; and carbon fiber cam belt covers, silencer guards and front fender ­ loses 2.2 lbs. compared to the base model. Both versions come with removable single seat covers and micro-bikini fairings.

The first public appearance for the Monster 1100/1100S will be at INTERMOT, the motorcycle trade fair opening in Cologne, Germany, on Oct. 8.
