Euro 4 type-approved (only for countries where Euro 4 standard applies) it is the structural element of the suspension set-up with coupling points for the trellis frame.

                                                                              Power and torque

                                                                              Read more

                                                                              Read more

                                                                              Single-sided swingarm

                                                                              The headlight is another element which has always been characteristic of the Monster. The Monster 1200 is equipped with a double parabola headlight and, on the Monster 1200 S, also with DRL System (Day Time Running Light).
