Ducati announced the updated Monster today, known as the Ducati Monster 1100 EVO.

For the first time, the Monster breaks the 3-digit horsepower wall, with the Desmodue engine putting out 100HP at 7,500RPM, and 76 ft-lbs of torque at 6,000 RPM. It puts that upgraded power to the rear wheel through a 6-speed transmission hooked up to a chain drive. That’s a pretty decent power output for a bike that only weighs 373 lbs (dry).

With the extra power comes some extra safety, too, with the Monster coming equipped with Ducati Traction control and a Brembo/Bosch ABS braking system.

Ducati has also redesigned the seat and moved the handlebars up, in order to increase rider comfort.

At least, as comfortable as a naked standard can be, anyway.

More info is available at Ducati’s web site.
