The Monster 1200 first appeared in 2014 with a premium S version coming in 2017, but it has never been available in all-black—so for the 2020 model year, Ducati decided to dunk the 1200 S in a barrel of black paint. And what's this model being called, officially? If you guessed Monster 1200 Black on Black, bravo. So there’s no red on it at all? There is, but it’s just a touch of crimson here and there; the Monster logo on the fuel tank, some tastefully restrained accents on two of the wheel spokes, a dash of color on the seat stitching, and the Brembo name on the calipers. That's it. It’s all a mix of moody matte and glossy black livery after that.
