For starters, the seat top has risen to 840mm (up from 820mm on the standard Monster), which can both be amplified to 850mm or lessened to 810mm, based on the accessory seat selection preferred. Coming to the geometrical improvements, Ducati has shortened the wheelbase and endowed it with a sharper rake angle and reduced trail, in an effort to raise cornering clearance, which must pay out dividends on the track.
