Monster 1200R performance upgrade

I Cant seem to find much about this via the search feature here or on Google.

In addition to a full exhaust with a tuner which will obviously give the most improvement and pave the way for any other mods, what other mods are available?
I plan to drop a tooth in the front.
Is there an intake system or airbox mod to do?


I LOVE the look, the feel, the handling and the riding position. But after riding my Superduke, i feel compelled to kick it up a bit.

Dont get me wrong, I am not expecting to match my Superduke performance being that is about 25 HP less. Im just trying to close the gap a bit.

I just put an MWR air filter on mine. Iím wondering if I need to do a tune now. I only have a slip on though. But honestly you donít need a full exhaust on these bikes. They already made the header pipe a larger diameter than the 1200s.

This topic has been covered Ad Infinitum but what the heck, I have nothing better to do right now so here goes:

#1 Short levers
#2 Annitori QuickShifter
#3 Light Carbon SC-Project exhaust requiring;
#4 Rexxer ECU flash
#5 Comfort Seat
#6+2R gearing change (TBA)

That's it for me and performance...then there's bling. Skies the limit here.

Gotta have that Ducati bling on there lol.

Do you know if you need to do a flash after installing a MWR air filter? Iím thinking maybe I need to do the rexxer flash. I can prob delete the o2 sensor while Iím at it Iím assuming.

Also, havenít people has issues with those annitorri quick shifters not working consistently?

@696DCRider
Annitori has been flawless. No ifs and buts. Lots of adjutability also.
If ever I had to roll back time, I would add a Rapidbike unit than a flash.
I had a RB unit on my Panigale and it was customizable. That's not to say that i'm not pleased with Rexxer (as I am) but you may have more fun with an RB.

You probably don't need a flash if it's just an OEM replacement filter. However, if you changed the exhaust also, then you definitely need it. I lost some torque when I installed the exhaust. Thus the reason for the flash. As for bling, I've purchased a few carbon pieces from Shift-Tech. A EP tail tidy, rad guards and some bar-end mirrors.

Thanks DarR. Iím currently waiting on some other parts and havenít been able to ride the bike to test it out. Turns out Italy goes on some like 2 week or so vacation this month and guess where all my parts are coming from...
