2011 Ducati Monster 1100 Evo: ABS, DTC…Diavel exhausts

Dailies, Galleries -

By

Been thinking to yourself, “Hmm, I really fancy myself a Monster 1100, but I’d really like one with the exhaust canisters from a Ducati Diavel”? Well, they must have mind readers in Bologna because that’s what they’ve done with the 2011 Ducati Monster 1100 Evo, throwing in standard ABS, traction control, data analysis and some slightly revised ergonomics in the process. Pinstripes too. This image is an early leak, we’ll bring you more and more info as its available.

    Now this is awesome! No, not the exhaust. But standard ABS and traction control on a simple, lightweight, fun bike designed for mere mortals. That’s awesome!

  • richard gozinya

    Now that’s spiffy!

  • Glenngineer

    I kind of like the exhaust. Better than the little MV.

    • MikeD

      Count me In on that.

    If you try really hard, you can pretend the exhaust is channeling the Streetfighter instead of the Diavel.

    High-fives currently in progress at Termignoni and Akrapovic. Next year’s Christmas bonus is a lock.

    geez how many people cant handle the power delivery on a monster??? are we all becoming incapable of handling a motorcycle????

      “geez how many people cant handle the power delivery on a monster???”

      Exactly the same number of people who actually own Monsters.

        i can only hope this technology filters down so that when i buy a JD lawn tractor in a couple of years ill have nothing to worry about.

  • robotribe

    Diavel, my ass. That’s rocking the S2R double-barrel can look but just a little lower. Not sure it’s better; looks like it’s ready to fall off.

  • seanslides

    That double 180 on the front headed is pure marketing bullshit designed just so they could have two pipes side-by-side a la chopper.

    Just incase anyone has forgotten:

    The monster used to be awesome. Simple, clean, badass.
    Now it’s got a plastic tank cover and special marketing pipes.

    • MikeD

      Yup, total case of Image before Function.
      And don’t think u’ll get away with posting Exhaust Porn…lol.

      Equal length headers are marketing bullshit?

      • MikeD

        No,no B.S there, thats a fact.
        But im almost “chop my left one” sure that it was first and foremost a styling exercise before a performance one like SeanSlides mentioned (after all, this thing is aiming for muscle cruisers where “things” often should first look good before functioning properly, if they do). The equal length was a nice bonus.

        Or maybe it was the other way around,engineers went for equal length headers and the swoopy routing was a “nice bonus” the designers pulled out?
        W/E the reason, thats what we’ll get and there’s always the aftermarket to try and fix it.

      • seanslides

        Equal length is certainly good, but that extra 180 is doing no favors for flow. My point is that there are a lot of ways to build a pipe, and off the top of my head, I can think of at least 3 that will give better power than the harley-esque pipes ducati slapped on there.

    Nope, still don’t want one.

    Had an M600 and the S2R 800 but I just can’t get on with the styling of these.

    I’m waiting for the Brutale version of the F3!

    • zipp4

      Amen, brother.

  • Liquidogged

    Year of the Ducati turd headers begins now. Long, metallic turds. Why, Ducati, why?

    hahaha seanslides – marketing pipes.

    turd headers – should go well with the massive whale penis exhausts that seem to be more common now.
