    Does anyone have any inside info on if the Monster 1200 is coming back to the U.S for 2022?

    I highly doubt it will be sold anywhere else in the world since it seems the engine doesn't meet Euro 5 specs and was selling last year in those markets on an exemption designed to let a manufacturer clear out an inventory of non-compliant bikes.

    I really want to buy one of these, but probably won't be ready to until late winter, early spring 2022 and I am afraid they will all be gone.

    I thought the new 950 was replacing all the Monsters after this year. Although there must be leftovers to buy.

    I am looking specifically for this bike...

    There aren't a lot of them within 300 miles of me, so I am concerned about finding a left over one. Although many dealers offer very reasonable shipping rates now, so at this price point it is almost immaterial.

    Dealer told me last week that the 1200 would not be available in 2022...

    No insider info, but 2023 is the 30 year anniversary of the Monster. Maybe Ducati will bring a special model back in '23.

    The problem is that the 1200 engine passes EURO4 emissions, but not EURO5. They where sold in 2021 on a provision in the law allowing Manufacturers to sell their remaining EURO4 compliant motorcycles to clear out inventory. I believe that 1200 engine is dead.

    If you can snap up a 1200 Monster, do it. What a wonderful bike. Every time I hop on my '15 it puts a smile on my face.

    I just picked up this 2014 M1200S. 1 owner, 8600 miles, bonestock and zero damage history.

    I forgot how terrible the throttle response and low rpm engine fueling is in stock condition. Yeesh! I sourced a termi and am getting the ecu reflashed. Deleting the kitty-kat and exup valve gizmo. She should be a beast!

    What are you doing about the exhaust flap? I've thought about screwing with it but mine runs quite nicely stock. Even sounds nice after you get some miles through the stock exhaust.

    I’m reflashing the ecu which takes the flap out of the equation. It never closes, it just stays open all the time. Throwing away the cables and servo motor.

    As far as what to do with valve itself, I have some decisions to make. The termi I have is for a 2016 M1200R. If is ever so slightly different than what termi offered for my 2014 M1200S.

    This week my fabricator and I will install the exhaust. We can modify the bracket so this termi will fit and keep the oe flap in place. However I am more inclined to modify the stock midpipe and delete the flap completely.

    If you’re wondering why I’m going to all the trouble of installing the wrong exhaust… a friend of mine just gave me this one lol. He had a 2016 M1200R that had this termi when he bought it. He then bought some other gawd awful loud thing. Then he got taken out by a car but fortunately survived his injuries. The bike did not. He gave me all the M1200R parts he had lying around.

    Well that was far easier than I thought it would be. By swapping the stock exhaust hanger bracket from the 14 M1200S to the 16 termi M1200R I could then bolt up the termi to my 14 M1200S. It fits just like factory. I suppose because it is lol.

    Today I will remove the mid pipe and carefully remove the flapper valve guts. Get rid of the cables, servo motor, etc. I love throwing stuff away.

    Shipping the ecu off to Rexxer for a reflash today as well. Hopefully I’ll have it back in a couple weeks.

    flappy valve… ANNIHILATED !

    What a hassle. Zero obstructions now though. Threw away the servo motor and cable.

    The servo motor lives with the battery in a hell-hole below the swingarm. You have to pull the battery to get at the servo. Yay!

    Not wanting to do that chore again I threw a new Yuasa in when it went back together.

    Now just waiting for my ecu to come back.
