Meanwhile, the standard Monster 1200 is more affordable at £119 per month. Furthermore, all new Monster 1200 models registered until September 30 qualify for a £750 Ducati Performance voucher. This voucher may be used on Ducati Performance clothing as well as accessories from official Ducati dealers. A unique red colour scheme of double white side-stripes can be seen on the Monster 1200 S and 821 Stripe.
