Ducati has updated the Monster 1100, giving it the EVO treatment, which brings with it +5hp on top (for a total of 100hp), while keep torque at 76 lbs•ft. The 2011 Ducati Monster 1100 EVO also benefits from Ducati’s electronics package, which now includes standard ABS, Ducati Traction Control (DTC), and Ducati Data Acquisition (DDA) as standard OEM equipment.

Fitted with a two-canister side exhaust (you can debate if this is being channeled from the Diavel or the Streetfighter), the Monster 1100 EVO tips the scales at 373lbs, 4lbs less than the 2010 Monster 1100 ABS. In addition to these goodies, Ducati has also revised the sitting position by adding a new seat and a 20mm higher bar-riser, there’s some nice rally stripes thrown into the mix.

Diehard Ducati fans will be sad to hear the Monster 1100 EVO is fitted with the APTC wet clutch, making for smoother transmission work, but perhaps less Italian soul (this means the entire Monster line will now have wet clutches). Photos after the jump.

    No S-model. Lame. Also, anyone know the changes to the ergonomics? It looks like they might be using the bar riser off of the 796, which is slightly higher.

    Kind of unrelated, but can I say that I LOATH clicking on images for your site? It really does take quite awhile before the first picture loads up in addition to not being able to scroll a large image if the window size is lower than the image I’m attempting to view.

    Otherwise, I really do enjoy reading this site.

  3. New seat, 20mm higher bars. I’m not sure how much sense the Monster 1100 S made in Ducati’s line-up.

    Aren’t the single-sided dual pipes more a return to past Monsters that they’ve been lacking since the new-gen Monsters have been around? Think the S2r, S2r 1000, S4r, S4rs?

    Ducati looks great.
    But I’ll agree with nace that this site is overall super slow to love. Otherwise love it. But its real slow

  6. Revamping the galleries is on the to-do list, and if I wasn’t traveling this week, we’d be on our new server by Friday. Bear with me fellas.

    They look great to me. I’ll take one in red and white please :)

  8. 2011 Monster 1100 EVO gets the APTC wet clutch. The #Ducati Monster line officially no longer has a dry clutch – http://bit.ly/cMgFcx

    Wet clutch on a Ducati product lines flagship? Fail.
    However, looks like they eliminated the M1100 and renamed the M1100s and added some goodies like traction control, made ABS standard, slimmed down the rearsets. Pretty cool over all… Not digging the shotgun exhaust, but that can be changed :)

  11. bikepilot says:

    A wet clutch suits me just fine, lighter pull, better feel, last longer, less fade. A dry clutch does provide a bit less drag and slightly improved shifting, but for street riding the wet units suit me better.

  12. MikeD says:

    I like it, could do away better with smaller single can, never cared for rattling dry clutches(sounded like the danm things was falling apart anyways).

    All the other neat stuff(ABS,TCS,DDA)now made standard sure sounds sweet.

  13. Larry says:

    GLAD THEY WENT BACK TO THE OLDER STYLE EXHAUST. CAUSE THE NEW STYLE EXHAUST ON THESE NEWER MONSTERS ARE SOOOOO UGLY!!!!!

  14. Larry says:

    MAYBE NOW TERNOGNONI WILL OFFER THAT “GP” SHORTIE EXHAUST AGAIN LIKE THEY DID WHEN THEY S4RS WAS OUT.

  15. Larry says:

    TERMIGNONI*

  16. L says:

    They were crazy to reduce the fuel tank by 1.5 litres. 13.5L tank for an 1100 ?? Come on. And ABS and traction control are just added weight. They should be optional. I thought the concept for monster was ‘less is more’. They’ve just added a bunch of electronics and you don’t need and reduced the fuel tank size. On top of that the side exhaust cans look nice, but the pipes look like a mess. The old 1100 has nice clean lines from pipe to exhaust. Give me the old monster 1100!

    As long as it doesn’t suffer from bad gas tanks like the “other” Ducs….
